It is with regret we advise the 2020 ANZSOC Conference, scheduled to take place on the Gold Coast 8 – 10 December has been cancelled.
This has been a very difficult decision for ANZSOC and the Local Organising Committee to take, however given the circumstances related to COVID-19, we feel this to be the most responsible course of action. It is our hope that by making an early decision, the level of inconvenience to participants will be minimalised.
The criminology group at Griffith University have committed to hosting an ANZSOC conference on the Gold Coast in 2021 at a similar time (early December 2021) but the format that conference will take will be reconsidered later this year by the Local Organising Committee, in consultation with the ANZSOC Committee of Management. It may be that the conference needs to be scaled back or reformulated in some way to take into consideration the capacity of universities and other employers to support participation at the conference. Further information about the 2021 conference will be distributed later this year.
We thank you for your understanding and look forward to connecting with you at the 2021 conference.
For any enquiries related to the conference please contact the ANZSOC Secretariat email@example.com.
