Call for registration and talks – CIE 2021 Annual Conference (Virtual)

Dear CIE staff and students,

We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 2021 CIE Annual Conference (Virtual) to be held on Thursday, 14th and Friday, 15th October 2021.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, our conference will once again be held online over Zoom.

The conference is an important event in the annual CIE calendar, giving students, staff and our wider network an opportunity to listen, discuss and contribute. It creates a unique forum for our academics, researchers and students to network, connect and collaborate across the Deakin campuses, and showcase the incredible research we’re producing as a Centre.

This is a great opportunity to introduce and share your research with online discussions, Q&A at the end of each cluster of talks, and networking opportunities. We’re also planning plenty of engaging (and fun!) activities to keep the Zoom fatigue at bay, and create an uplifting atmosphere at our virtual conference.

We encourage all of our CIE members to be part of this important annual event!

Conference program and keynote speakers will be announced shortly.

Are you presenting at the conference?

Please include the title of your talk in the registration application. Speaker registrations close at 11:59pm on Wednesday September 15th, 2021, with the conference program available by the end of September.

Are you attending the conference as an audience member only?

Great! Just follow the instructions on screen during the registration process. Registrations for audience members remain live up until, and during the conference.

We look forward in welcoming you to the 2021 CIE Annual Conference!

Zoom links will be emailed to registered event participants closer to the date.

The Victorian Biodiversity Conference 2021 (11-12 Feb) – registration now open

The Victorian Biodiversity Conference (VicBioCon) is an annual scientific conference focused on highlighting leading biodiversity-related research based in the state of Victoria, Australia.

The conference is held over two days towards the beginning of each year and is organised by a dedicated team of post-graduate students and academics from a number of Victorian universities.

We are entirely non-for-profit, and each conference would not be possible without the support of our wonderful sponsors. Special thanks to the Centre for Integrative Ecology (CIE) for their generous sponsorship which has enabled us to use software to host the conference entirely online, over two days on the 11th and 12th of February 2021.

To reserve your ticket to the conference, please click HERE.

We also have four workshops on the 10th of February. Please click HERE to view our workshops and reserve your spot.
