Conference Registration

ASTC Conference 12 to 14 October

To attend the conference, please complete the form below by 9 October. We’d love to see you there!

 

Each conference day runs from 1 pm to 5 pm AEDT. The topics for each day are shown on the right - see the 2021 Conference page for full details on session times, topics and presenters. 

Between each session will be an informal chat time for all delegates. If you have any subjects you'd like to discuss, please send them to conf-org@astc.org.au. Chat time will also be a great opportunity to network, meet new technical writers and those you've not seen for a long time. 

Connect with your profession.
Learn from your peers.
Check out the conference presentations.

Why attend the conference?

This is an ideal occasion to refresh your thinking and to keep up to date with the latest trends in technical communication.

 

Can't attend all conference sessions?

The conference presentations will be available via video for one month following the conference - but only if you book to attend. The chat sessions may not be available. That will depend on the subject and the number of people taking part.
