About the AHRC12
The Australasian Housing Researchers' Conference is a premier conference for housing researchers in Australia and New Zealand. The conference is an important annual event for housing researchers across Australasia, allowing delegates to discuss their research with their colleagues and peers. Since the conference was established in 2006 it has allowed hundreds of participants to share their insights on the housing, homelessness and housing system broadly with an academic audience.
The Australasian Housing Researchers Conference was first held in 2006 in the beautiful city of Adelaide. Subsequent conferences have been held in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and, most recently in 2010 the 5th AHRC, in Auckland New Zealand. The 2012 Australasian Housing Researchers' Conference (AHRC12) marks the important return of the conference to Adelaide.
The AHRC12 will bring to Adelaide Australasia's brightest minds in housing research, attracting participants from a range of backgrounds, including academia, the government and non-government sectors.
The AHRC12 will be held on campus at the University of Adelaide. The event will run over two and half days from Wednesday 8th February to Friday 10 February 2012.
The AHRC12 was an 'A' ranked conference under the ERA 2010 rankings.
The AHRC12 welcomes delegates (housing researchers) from a range of academic backgrounds, including geography, public policy, law, sociology, planning, economics, architecture and urban design, and public policy.
Notably, the AHRC12 is a perfect forum for early career researchers and postgraduate scholars to present their innovative research ideas and findings (including preliminary findings) on housing-related issues. We welcome abstracts and presentations from early career researchers and postgraduate scholars and a special reduced conference rate is available for full-time postgraduate scholars.
Early career researchers are encouraged to submit a paper for the Housing Minister's Award for Early Career Researchers (ECR Award) sponsored by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute Ltd (AHURI Ltd). Please see ECR Award and ECR Award Paper Submission for further information.
