Each year IERA holds a conference at a different location around the world, often sponsored by a participating University. IERA members and industry specialists are invited to submit papers to present at each conference, in accordance with the relevant theme chosen for that year, and the paper guidelines stipulated. The 2014 Conference was held at the Mantra on the Esplanade Hotel in Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia.

The 2016 Conference was held at Academies Australasia Polytechnic, Bourke St. Melbourne,  Australia from 11-13 July 2016. Highlights included Professor Christina Cregan’s keynote address and the conference dinner at the Red Spice Road Restaurant in CBD Melbourne. All those attending rated the conference as both very enjoyable and successful.

22nd IERA Conference 10-12 July 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The IERA Executive has previously reviewed the operations and organisation of the association in the light of the decision to integrate PERA into the operations of IERA.

July is now the regular time for IERA Conferences.  This time makes it much easier for academics from the Northern Hemisphere to attend, and will hopefully also avoid any scheduling clashes for those in Australia and New Zealand.

We look forward to welcoming you to Kuala Lumpur next July!
