We are thrilled to announce that registrations are now open for our Mid-Year HDR Conference. The event will take place on Friday, June 30th, 2023 at RMIT University (City Campus) in Melbourne. We would be delighted if you could join us for this free event, but please note that students must be a member of SMAANZ to attend. We encourage you to share this invitation with your relevant HDR student groups and encourage them to attend and present their research. This is an excellent opportunity to present your research to your peers and the academic community. Additionally, we will be offering two workshop sessions on specific topics of interest.

We are currently accepting abstracts to present at the conference. Whether you are just starting your PhD journey or are further along, we invite you to submit a short abstract or encourage your PhD students to do so. This mid-year conference provides a great opportunity to present and workshop your research with other HDR students and academics.
