Please use these themes and sessions as guides as papers on any aspect of social science methodology will be considered. The conference attracts a wide variety of papers from HDR students to very established researchers. We encourage researchers at all levels to submit abstracts.

COVID-19 note:
We are currently working on the assumption that we will be able to gather in person in December in Sydney. If this isn't possible, we will communicate with all those who have submitted proposals to decide if a postponement or virtual conference would be the best way to proceed.

You can enter submissions until 2020-09-24 23:59 (Australia/Sydney), 2 months, 3 weeks from now.
