The 2021 AITPM National Conference will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on Thursday 29 and Friday 30 July 2021.
The 2021 Online Conference Series will be held online in the months following the Brisbane event.
The ‘Call for Abstracts’ are now open for the 2021 AITPM National Traffic and Transport Conference Brisbane and the 2021 Online Conference Series.
A combined Call for Abstracts process is being undertaken and submitters have the option to select at which of the events they would like to present.
New process - no conference paper required in 2021
The AITPM are running a new process for the 2021 events, and the preparation of a paper is not required.
The removal of the requirement to provide a paper is not intended to diminish the quality of the presentations, but has been implemented in 2021 in recognition of the significant resource commitment that this process requires for presenters and volunteers . The process also adds considerable length to the timing of the conference planning and preparation processes, which can impact on the currency and relevance of the presentations. For 2021 we are therefore trialling the removal of this time consuming step in the National Conference event process. This will be reviewed later in the year for consideration in the planning for our event in Sydney in 2022.
For 2021, abstracts will be used to assess the proposed presentations and accepted presenters are only required to provide a copy of their presentation - preparation of a paper is not required. If a presenter still wishes to provide a paper this is still welcome, however please note that it will not be reviewed and will only be published electronically.
