APS 2021: Conference Format

The APS is 100% committed to bringing their members and delegates a conference in 2021.  It is clear that the safest and most reliable way to do this is in a virtual only format.

The SPC has now re-worked our traditional format to better suit a virtual platform and we are excited about the content and quality of next year’s program.

Based on survey feedback from APS members and past-delegates, the Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) has been condensed to a 2 day program that will be followed by a 4-part webinar series specifically designed to augment the main conference program.  This way, we can be sure that we best meet your needs around online learning whilst also preserving the breadth and depth of information that is traditionally offered in our ASM.

The APS 2021 virtual ASM will now run from 19 - 20 April 2021, with the 4-part webinar series occurring on the last Tuesday of each month April –August (NB: there will be no webinar in June due to IASP 2021). Pre-Conference Workshops will be held online, on Sunday 11 April 2021.

Registration for the conference will include access to all webinars.  Pre-conference workshops are additional.

We are excited to connect safely with you online next year and can assure all delegates that the program will include the opportunity to network, collaborate and learn.

Registrations will be open in January 2021 and we have extended the early bird deadline until Tuesday 9 March 2021.

We understand that running a virtual conference means asking for your attention while you juggle work and home life as well, and for this reason, registered delegates will have access to all recorded conference and webinar sessions for the 12 months following APS 2021.

We are immensely grateful to the National Convention Centre Canberra (NCCC), ACT, who have been flexible, understanding and considerate in their dealings with our 2021 venue booking. We look forward to taking APS 2023 to the NCCC, ACT.
