The Academic Conference will take place at the SAE campus in Northbridge, Perth, Western Australia.

It’s young, it’s passionate, it’s political and it’s directly connected to the screening program. You don’t have to be presenting a paper – or be an academic – to attend. Still, if you’re interested in the challenge, change, discussion and making people work for their ideas we suggest you register.


If conferences and networking are new to you, then you can’t find a more supportive and friendly environment in which to train. We’re all friends and all ideas and opinions are valued and welcomed.
