2022 Mid-Year HDR Student Conference

The SMAANZ, CAUTHE and ANZALS HDR conference presents a fantastic opportunity for students to hone presentation skills, receive a high level of feedback on ideas, and network with staff and students who have similar interests.

The 2022 Mid-Year HDR Student Conference will be run in partnership with SMAANZ, CAUTHE and ANZALS. The in-person event will be held on Friday 1st July, 10:00 am AEST at Griffith University, Gold Coast.

  • Presentations: Students will each give 10-minute live presentations, and then receive constructive feedback from academics and their fellow students. This presentation could be a practice for the SMAANZ Conference in December, a journal article/thesis chapter, or if you’re in the early stages of a Masters/PhD you could present your proposed project. This is an opportunity to develop your presentation skills in a friendly and welcoming environment, and to get feedback from external sources.  Unlike previous years, please note that attendance at the conference is not conditional on presenting. A call for presentations will follow shortly.
  • Panel Session: “Managing Competing Priorities throughout the PhD" 
  • Griffith Sport Tour: including discussion on the hosting of the Commonwealth Games linking into practical management aspects of sport, leisure and tourism.
  • Social activities: Dinner and drinks at a Gold Coast venue to be announced.

The event is free to attend for  SMAANZ, CAUTHE or ANZALS members. Please keep an eye out for registration and call for presenters email to follow.
