Submissions

The submission portal has closed. If you have missed the deadline, please email your 200 word abstract to tasa2022@arinex.com.au  by June 22nd. 

Abstracts are required for all presentations (i.e. even if you are submitting a paper). TASA only accepts written conference papers from Honours, Graduate and Postgraduate students. These papers will be reviewed and if accepted included in the conference proceedings (please note, it is not compulsory for Honours, Graduate and Postgraduate students to submit a paper. This cohort can submit an abstract only and will be allocated the same presentation length as peers who have submitted a paper. The difference being, those students who have submitted a paper will have it reviewed and published in the proceedings). Conference papers for refereeing will be accepted from non-students if a delegate cannot access institutional support or funding to attend otherwise. If this applies to you, please contact Sally in the TASA Admin for a ‘full paper submission’ code before submitting your paper.

All abstracts (and papers) will be submitted for a review process with notification of results sent via email by Friday July 22nd, 2022. Accepted abstracts and papers will be allocated 15 minutes presentation time and 5 minutes for questions. For more Key Dates information, click here. 

Please note, delegates, who are not Honours or above, are invited to submit poster presentations. The conference is open to all sociology students and others who wish to submit abstracts and papers outside the conference themes.
