    (AARE) Conference 2018

    Sunday 2 – Thursday 6 December 2018
    University of Sydney, New South Wales



Our annual conference was a truly international event with papers presented by researchers from across the world, including: Canada, Chile, China, Denmark, Fiji, Finland, Hong Kong, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Singapore, Sweden, Thailand, United Kingdom, and United States. These international delegates joined a large contingent of Australian researchers bringing the total number of attendees to approximately 850 people.

Pre-conferecne workshop, as well as activities organised by a number of special interest groups preceded the main four-day conference program. Alongside the academic program, the social program provided opportunities for attendees to network, and participate in an Aboriginal interpretive Tour. 

On behalf of the members of AARE, I express my gratitude to Associate Professor Georgina Barton, the conference planning committee, and all the volunteers acting in so many different capacities who collectively contributed to the success of the conference. 

We look forward to welcoming you again in 2019 when we will meet at Queensland University of Technology, 1-5 December. The conference theme will be Education for a Socially Just World.
