Invitation to Submit an Abstract - Now Closed
Abstract submission close at 5PM AEST on 6 October 2023.
Members and non-members are invited to submit an abstract to be considered as a presenter on the program. Abstracts will be reviewed by the AAIR Forum Committee. Abstracts are submitted in text format within the abstract submission portal, and can be up to 300 words.
Accepted speakers must register and pay for at least one day of the forum, and must present at the face-to-face event unless they have been approved to present virtually (limited virtual presentations are being accepted). Face-to-face presenters receive $100 off the full registration rate.
Presentation and Discussion Session (40 Minutes)
Presentations share research, innovative applications, creative and effective practices, and professional work products. The role of the presenter(s) is to convey information about the session topic. Presentation slides and handouts are frequently used. At least 10 minutes should be reserved for questions and audience participation. Sessions may be led by one or more presenters.
Workshop Presentation (40 minutes)
Workshop a topic with your peers! These sessions are the preferred format for development of skills and knowledge among participants and must have clearly articulated expected learning outcomes. Workshop facilitators will need to have skills in group facilitation, and interaction should be integral in the session. Facilitators will be asked to provide a short, written report on workshop outcomes.

When submitting your abstract, please select from a theme that aligns with your abstract content:
- The Evolving Role of the Institutional Researcher

All accepted abstracts will be published in the forum handbook / online exactly as they are submitted. Abstracts will not be proofread or edited by the Forum Managers or Forum Organising Committee. It is the responsibility of the presenting author to ensure that the abstract is submitted correctly. If you are unable to submit via the website, please contact the Forum Managers.
Authors whose abstracts are accepted for inclusion in the forum program will be advised once abstract reviews have taken place at that time will receive detailed instructions regarding the requirements moving forward.
While the committee hopes all abstract presenters can attend, if a presenter cannot attend in person, they can request to present virtually via video link (Zoom). There will be limited virtual presentations on the program and acceptance of virtual speakers are at the discretion of the committee.
All abstract speakers receive $100 off their registration fee. The discount code to redeem the saving will be sent out with the acceptances on 6 October.
