Student Workshop – Griffith University 2017

Welcome to the SMAANZ student workshop page! On this page you’ll find information on the different opportunities available to you as a SMAANZ student member at the annual Conference. Your student representative is Katherine Raw from La Trobe University in Melbourne. If you have any questions regarding SMAANZ or your student membership, please email Katherine on:

Please note the 2017 SMAANZ Conference will be held at Griffith University on the Gold Coast, Australia on Thursday 30th November and Friday 1st December.

2017 Student Workshop

In addition to the main Conference, students who register for the Conference are also invited to attend the Student Workshop. The Student Workshop is currently being organised but is likely to be held on Wednesday 29th November at the University. The workshop content is likely to complement previous years’ work, for example presentations and interactive workshops from a variety of academics. The workshop is free to attend for students who are registered at the conference, but you will need to register for the workshop separately. To register for the workshop, please email Katherine Raw on and include the following information:

  • Full name
  • University
  • PhD/Masters/ Honours topic area
  • Year of PhD study (if you’re a Masters or Honours student, please state this instead)

2017 Financial Assistance

In addition to the Student Workshop, students will also be able to apply for financial assistance to attend the conference on the Gold Coast. SMAANZ offers up to five $200 student travel assistance scholarships. If you’re interested in applying for this please click here for details. Applications close July 31st, 2017.

2017 Student Social

The last, but by no means least, opportunity available for registered students is a Student Social. This will take place on the evening of Thursday 30th November. Details are still being finalised, but this is likely to include an informal meal and drinks out (at individual’s own expense), providing the opportunity for everyone to get to know each other.
