SMAANZ offers numerous networking and development opportunities for HDR (higher degree by research) students throughout the year.
Annual HDR Workshop
This workshop takes place at the annual SMAANZ Conference and is usually hosted the day before the conference starts in the host city. This workshop includes a variety of development sessions, delivered by senior academics in the SMAANZ community (e.g. publication advice sessions, academic career advice). This workshop is free for all SMAANZ HDR students attending the annual conference, but pre-registration with the SMAANZ Student Representative is essential.
HDR Mid-Year Conference
This one day conference occurs in July each year and is an opportunity for HDR students to present their work in a friendly environment and receive constructive peer and academic feedback. The conference is free to SMAANZ HDR members and is also available to non-SMAANZ HDR members (for a fee of $40, which also includes annual SMAANZ student membership).
