ABLE Higher Degree by Research Conference

Explore the diverse range of research conducted by Higher Degree by Research (HDR) candidates within the faculty showcased at the annual ABLE Higher Degree by Research Conference.

The conference program includes research presentations, panel discussions and professional development sessions. It will also be an engaging day with catered lunch, morning and afternoon tea, awards for researchers, and an opportunity to have a headshot taken for your researcher profile.

This year, we are pleased to announce that in addition to showcasing the high calibre research being undertaken by our HDR students, the conference will feature an additional information and promotional segment tailored for prospective students. A diverse array of stakeholders will be in attendance, providing opportunities for interaction and conversations.

ABLE HDR residents in Adelaide are encouraged to attend the conference and limited places are also available for Supervisors, Postgraduate Coordinators and Honours Students.
