2018 Australian Population Association conference, 18-20 July


Fresh from analysing newly released 2016 Census data, population experts, practitioners, policy makers, researchers and students will gather in Darwin on 18-20 July 2018 for the Australian Population Association’s 19th biennial conference. Along with stimulating content and great networking opportunities, delegates will enjoy Darwin’s perfect dry season weather, its warm and laid-back atmosphere and some ‘only locals know’ highlights.


Northern Institute's 'Demography and Growth Planning' research team are leading the organisation of this major event with support from the Northern Territory Department of Treasury and Finance. The lead organiser is Dr Andrew Taylor and the academic program, which will be contemporary and insightful, is being managed by Dr Tom Wilson. Attendees will experience fantastic value for money and the warmth and culture of our beautiful Top End. We urge academics, planners, policymakers, students and anyone with an interest in population-related issues to pencil in the dates of 18-20 July 2018. More information will be available in coming months so stay tuned here and on the Australian Population Association’s Conference website, http://apaconference.cdu.edu.au.
