AWAWS Brisbane Chapter presents
The Cancelled Conference
For many postgraduate students the mid-year break is usually a time to attend conferences and workshops to gain academic and professional experience. These events provide great opportunities for postgraduates to share their research ideas, practice public speaking, further their professional development, and meet fellow peers. Due to the unfolding circumstances most conferences and workshops for 2020 have been cancelled or postponed for the foreseeable future. As a postgrad-led chapter we are particularly aware of the impact these cancellations can have on academic development for postgraduate students, especially for new students planning to attend their first conference.
To combat these cancellations and to make the most of our time in isolation, AWAWS Brisbane will be holding The Cancelled Conference to provide AWAWS postgraduate members with an opportunity to put their cancelled conference papers to good use. The conference will be held virtually over Zoom in mid-July. Although we cannot fully recreate or replace attending an academic conference, we hope The Cancelled Conference will be a useful alternative.
Date and Location
The Cancelled Conference will be held Monday 13 – Tuesday 14 July depending on numbers.
The conference will be held virtually through Zoom, UQ’s preferred video-call software.
Zoom links for each panel session will be provided in the conference program.
