Post-conference workshops

The main conference takes place on Monday 19 November. Two post-conference workshops will be run on the morning of Tuesday 20 November. The cost of the workshops is included in the conference registration fee. The two workshop topics are as follows: 

Community Voices

Sponsored by NHMRC National Institute for Dementia Research

In this workshop, we aim to bring young researchers and members of the community together, to discuss the issues that community members feel most impact their day-to-day lives, and the issues that they would like research to focus on. Our panel will comprise clinicians, representatives from the older community, and people living with Alzheimer's disease, Friedreich's Ataxia and Huntington's disease. A short seminar delivered by the clinicians will be followed by breakout sessions for small-group discussions with each of the community members.

Publishing Your Research

In this workshop, Editors-In-Chief for two leading journals in our field will discuss how to get your work published in high-quality journals. We will also discuss other important issues in publication, including how to avoid predatory publishers, and how to get your work noticed and cited. 

Note: Places in both workshops are limited so participants are encouraged to register for the conference and indicate their ­­ preference as soon as possible.


A small number of bursaries will be available to support postgraduate students presenting at the conference. More information about the bursary application process will be listed on the conference website at http://www.era.edu.au/ERA+2018 soon.
