11 - 15 October
eResearch Australasia2021 Conference

The eResearch Australasia conference provides an exciting opportunity for delegates to engage, connect and share their ideas and exemplars concerning new information centric research capabilities, and how ICT technologies can help researchers to collaborate, collect, manage, share, process, analyse, find, understand and reuse information.

Invitation to attend

On behalf of the Organising Committee, we invite you to participate in the 2021 eResearch Australasia Conference, 11 – 15 October.

The ongoing circumstances associated with COVID-19 continue to provide us an opportunity to innovate with the conference format. This year we are pleased to announce the program will include a variety of online and in-person events.

The call for BoF Sessions, Oral Presentations, and Lightning Talks is closed.

If you have missed the deadline and would like to submit an Oral Presentation or Lightning Talk abstract please contact mail@conferencedesign.com.au as the committee may consider late submissions.

The call for Poster submissions will remain open until 10 September.

What to expect – Online

Building on our experience from the inaugural eResearch Australasia Online Conference and feedback from participants, we are aiming to further refine the conference format to keep time commitments for most attendees to a maximum of 4 hours per day.

It is expected the online component of the conference will include;

  • Live and Pre-Recorded Oral and Featured Speaker Presentations
  • Online workshops
  • Online Posters, Lightning Talks and Solutions Showcase Presentations
  • Online Exhibition Area
  • Online BOF’s and Discussion Forums
  • Online Networking Sessions
  • Online Meeting Hub

What to expect – In Person

In person events for the 2021 conference will follow a “hub and node” model, with all registrations including access to an event in your nearest location.

It is expected that the main eResearch Conference hub will be situated in Brisbane, with node locations situated in major cities throughout Australia.

Details regarding in person activities will be confirmed as planning proceeds, however we anticipate the opportunity for plenty of networking and catching up with colleagues!

Sponsors and Partners

For our Sponsors and Industry Partners, there will be opportunity for you to support the conference and engage with members and the community in a meaningful manner both online and at in-person events.

We hope to see you all online (and in person!) in October.

AeRO CEO and Organising Committee Chair
