Conference Theme

The 2018 conference theme was Mission Impossible? Truth and Lies in the age of choice.

The conference provided a platform for the international and Australian community to share new research, experiences and evidence-based practices in plenary talks and concurrent sessions, with many opportunities for meaningful networking and engagement.
