AILASA Conference Online: How it works

The conference papers, panels, and discussion will take place on the Whova Event online platform.


The committee will organise papers into panels by theme, as with a normal conference.

Presenters will pre-record their papers and upload them to the online platform.

We will also provide a suite of live online workshops for HDR and ECRs, involving papers and live activities hosted by leaders in the topics.

The Keynote Presentations will be available online. In addition, we encourage all attendees to join us for a simultaneous broadcast of the Keynote Presentations at in-person events throughout Australia and New Zealand's major centres. We hope that these events will provide much needed face to face interaction and networking opportunities.


Papers will be up to 15 minutes in duration. Presentations may be delivered in English, Spanish, or Portuguese.

All presenters will pre-record their paper and upload it to the designated conference website. Detailed instructions will be provided closer to the conference date.


Abstract and panel proposals should be emailed to ailasa@ailasa.org. After an initial acknowledgement, presenters will receive confirmation by the 27th of May 2022.

Each paper should include (1) a title, (2) an abstract of 150 words, (3) the presenter's name and institutional affiliation.


We ask that all attendees join AILASA in order to participate in the online conference. You can do so by following this link to the AILASA website.

Conference costs are scaled according to income. This is in recognition of the ongoing impact of the pandemic on people's capacity to pay for conference attendance:

$25 AUD for HDRs

$50 AUD for Non-salaried Academics

$100 AUD for Salaried Academics

$120 AUD for Salaried Academics at the level of Associate Professor

and above

Please choose the scale that you think is fair in your circumstance.  For those currently not working or in precarious positions, please contact our committee to discuss alternative options. 

We will open the payment portal once we notify people of the outcome of their abstract/proposal.
