Call for abstracts

The call for abstracts is now closed. Notifications have been emailed to submitting authors.

NHC 2017 – the largest social and affordable housing event in Australasia – is a heavily designed program aiming to present sessions in line with policy development and sector priorities. Close to 140 quality abstract submissions were received for a limited number of presentations spaces. Due to this overwhelming response, we are currently working to allocate as many submissions as possible alongside invited speakers into a comprehensive, relevant, and interesting program.  A more detailed draft program, including accepted abstract submissions will be available mid-July.
