Welcome!

Well...you could say a lot has happened since we said our fond farewells at the DFA2019 conference with a good ol' hug and a handshake. But the good news is the DFA conference is back. The better news is it's bigger than ever!

This year we're taking the conference virtual.  Why? Because our goal is to deliver an exceptional conference experience from the bush to the big smoke, and everywhere in between.  We have a superstar line-up of international and national experts presenting at plenary sessions and workshops across the two days. We're also elevating the digital experience with VR digital experiences that give a whole new conference perspective.

Most importantly though, we're focusing on the content that matters. So whether you prefer the comfort of the couch, or finding a quiet spot in the office, DFA 2021 is all about relaxed learning and networking with old friends and new. And with no flights, accommodation, or lockdowns to think about, we can't wait to welcome you to DFA2021!

Successful submissions are provided the opportunity to deliver a virtual presentation during one of the four abstract sessions across the two day conference. These sessions are an important part of DFA 2021, as they show the newest and brightest research works from around Australia and internationally.
