Due to the continuing impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic, we will not be presenting a planned AIFS Conference in Melbourne in June 2021.
Instead of a large conference in 2021, we are presenting a series of smaller COVID-safe events throughout the year that will highlight the many fantastic speakers originally scheduled in our 2020 conference program. These events include themed online webinars, half day virtual sessions, socially distanced face to face roundtables and workshops and a showcase of the 2020 e-Poster presentations.
Snack-sized Research Showcase
The Snack-sized Research Showcase gives you a taste of 70 research projects in 10 different themes about a wide range of issues that you can access through a website. Each presentation is in a short ‘snack-sized’ format in 5 slides or as a video. You can enjoy the showcase at a time that suits you.
AIFS 2022 Conference
We are very excited to announce that a new AIFS Conference at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre will be held in June 2022 (dates TBC). This Conference will be a re-themed event and is expected to be on the same large scale as the deferred 2020 Conference.
The effects of the pandemic and other crises are far reaching and long term. For our 2022 Conference, we will reflect on the social and economic impacts these crises have had on families. What have we learnt about the challenges and the opportunities to support families with better policy and service systems in a rapidly changing world?
