Paper submissions close Friday for NDS’s Regional and Remote Conference

Regional and Remote Conference 2023 14 March 2023 Darwin Convention Centre


If you are a provider with a story or a solution to share, we want to hear about the work you have done to drive your organisation into the future. By filling out a call-for-papers form and submitting an abstract of up to 300 words by close of business Friday 10 February, you can contribute to this years' Regional and Remote Conference in Darwin. Poster and video extracts will also be accepted. A programming committee will review and shortlist submissions.   

This year’s conference in Darwin on 14 March will focus on the opportunities for disability service providers in regional and remote areas. Early-bird registrations are open. Secure your tickets today! 

The conference will explore topics of special concern and urgency for regional and remote providers:  

  • workforce sourcing and retention

Those unable to travel to Darwin can connect to the conference livestream.
