AARE 50th Anniversary Conference and Celebrations Postponed


The AARE Conference Standing Committee has made the difficult decision to postpone the AARE 50th Anniversary Conference and Celebrations until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

While we are disappointed that we will not be able to come together to share our research and collegiality in person, AARE will continue to support its special interest groups to conduct online workshops, seminars and networking events. 

We will be working with SIG convenors to prepare a program of events supported by AARE during 2020 and 2021, which will highlight world-class research and support collaboration and capacity building. 

We will update you with further information as it becomes available. 

Our hope is that the 2021 conference and belated 50th anniversary celebrations will be even bigger and better! 

Please put the dates in your diary: Sunday 28 November – Thursday 2 December 2021, UniSA City West Campus, Adelaide. 

The conference website (www.aareconference.com.au) will continue to provide latest information and we look forward to receiving your conference proposals in early 2021. 

Wishing you every strength during these uncertain and difficult times. Please take care of yourselves, your loved ones and communities. Together we will prevail.
