NDS invites the submission of presentation abstracts from interested parties for the Disability at Work incorporating the Workability International Conference 2020, “Disability employment in a digital world” to be held on 12-13 October at the Brisbane Convention Centre, QLD, Australia. 

We encourage you to help design this stimulating event, which in 2020 will include the input of employment service providers (open, supported, social enterprises and transition to work) and professionals from around the world. 

The two-day conference will examine world’s best practice in activating and engaging people with disability in a broad range of employment opportunities, particularly through the application of the latest technological breakthroughs. 

NDS is calling for abstracts of presentations that will refine and enrich the delivery of employment supports for people with disability. There will be a strong focus on harnessing technology to enhance access to employment, including case studies highlighting recent innovative solutions. 

Abstracts are to be submitted electronically by 30 April 2020.
