SMAANZ 2026 - EOI Reopened

Dear SMAANZ Community,

The SMAANZ Board is reopening Expressions of Interest for hosting the 2026 SMAANZ Conference. We welcome submissions from Australian and New Zealand universities. It is noted that upcoming SMAANZ Conferences are planned in Geelong (2024) and Auckland (2025).

Attached is a template EOI document and a template Memorandum of Understanding that outlines the details required for hosting the SMAANZ conference. The expressions of interest will be assessed by the SMAANZ Board on the following selection criteria:

  • Experience in managing academic conferences
  • Experience in managing academic paper collection, distribution and return for the reviewing process
  • Track record of successful conferences
  • Host University support
  • Track record in obtaining sponsorship
  • Range of services and ancillary events provided

Please submit all Expressions of Interest, and any questions, regarding hosting the 2026 SMAANZ conference, to by Friday June 28th, 2024.

Kind regards,

Sarah Wymer

SMAANZ Administration Assistant
