Conference dinner

AAHPSSS will arrange an informal conference dinner at a local restaurant on Thursday 30 November, following the shared social function arranged by CHASS. As part of registration, you will be asked whether you are likely to attend the dinner so that we have an indication of numbers for our booking, but this will not be a binding commitment. The dinner will not be included in the conference registration fee. We will confirm attendance during the conference, and dinner will be paid for on the night.


Discounted rates at a range of participating hotels have been arranged by CHASS for the full week of the Congress, including the AAHPSSS conference. These rates can be accessed through the link below.

Langham Bursaries

Members of AAHPSSS who are participating in the 2023 AAHPSSS conference and who need travel support may apply for an Ian Langham Bursary. Applications should include a brief statement of need for the bursary, including a description of any alternative sources of funding that may be available to the applicant, and a quote from a travel agent to indicate expected travel costs. Applications will not be accepted from non-members, from members in the Greater Sydney area, or from members in secure employment.

The Langham Bursary covers travel costs only. It does not cover the costs of accommodation, meals or incidentals. The Bursary is paid as a reimbursement subsequent to the conference, upon provision of relevant receipts and bank account details, and will be made as expeditiously as possible upon provision of these.

The total funding for each application is capped at $800 and the number of bursaries provided is limited. Assessments will be made on the basis of how well the applicant's research engages with the purposes of AAHPSSS and the demonstrated need.

Applications for the Ian Langham Bursary close on Friday 27 October 2023, and should be addressed to the Secretary, Martin Bush martin.bush@unimelb.edu.au.

Langham Prize

Postgraduate students may have their papers considered for the Langham Prize for the best paper by a graduate student. Presentations must be a single paper and may be presented as a stand-alone paper or part of an organised session. Panel discussions, workshops and co-presentations will not usually be considered. Details about how to apply will be posted soon.
