The AICCM National Conference 2019 will be held at the Arts Centre, Melbourne, over two days 13-15 November. AICCM is inviting submissions for papers that consider what excites you, what challenges you, and what you want to discuss further. The conference will be broadly divided into three themes – making conservation sustainable, innovative and connected – and submissions are asked to respond to one of the given themes.
The organising committee welcomes abstracts of 250 words on these three distinct but connected topics. Suggested formats include:
• Papers (20 minutes)
• Lightning talks (5 minutes)
• Panel discussions (45 minutes – 1 hour)
• Other facilitated discussion, debate, critique, networking or interactive sessions
• Short video presentations
• Tours (to be facilitated through the tour afternoon)
What treatments are inspiring you, what new project have you developed, what plans do you have for the future? Where should conservation be heading, both locally and globally, and how are we going to get there? How are we making conservation now and how can the way we make conservation shape the future?
The three day conference will include two and a half days of presentations, an afternoon of tours, a panel discussion on conservation education, welcome drinks and an evening soiree.
Submissions close: 1 July 2019
