Dear APAS members,
The APAS2020 conference will be held at Fairmont Resort in Leura on 23-25 March 2020 (Monday – Wednesday). As usual, the annual team building event will be held on the 1st day, followed by paper presentations on the 2nd and 3rd day of the conference. The conference theme is “2020 Vision: Hindsight, Backsight, Foresight” – please refer to the event page for details.
The Call for Abstracts for APAS2020 is now open. A successful conference relies on the presentation of quality papers reporting on a multitude of areas that are of interest to the profession. There is a lot of fantastic work being done out there – why not tell the profession about it? Please consider presenting a paper at this conference. Please note that the conference registration fee will be waived for presenters (i.e. one presenter per paper).
For your information, the deadlines for APAS2020 contributions are as stated below. Please ensure that you meet these deadlines, so the conference program and proceedings can be finalised in time.
Abstract submission deadline: Friday, 20 September 2019
Draft paper deadline: Friday, 22 November 2019
Final paper deadline: Friday, 24 January 2020
Conference: 23-25 March 2020 (Monday-Wednesday, with presentations on Tue and Wed)
We recognise that authors may not be very experienced in writing papers. In fact, we encourage submissions from authors that do not normally present their work at conferences. Following the positive feedback received after past APAS conferences, we therefore again offer two paper deadlines. By submitting your paper by the draft paper deadline, you have the opportunity to receive feedback from the Editor which may result in improvements of your paper. Any suggested changes can then be made before the final paper deadline. Please ensure that you use the full paper template for your submission.
Please also note that all papers will be made available on the APAS website (https://www.apas.org.au/). On the Resources page, you will also find this Call for Abstracts including the attached templates.
Please feel free to pass on this Call for Abstracts to any colleagues that may be interested in presenting at APAS2020.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
