National Housing Conference 2023: A way forward – Registration now open!


Now accepting abstracts for NHC23

The submission portal for abstracts for the National Housing Conference 2023 - A way forward is now closed.

NHC23 has three major themes under the tagline of “A way forward” and your abstract should align with at least one of the major themes:

  • Community and wellbeing
  • Investment and supply
  • Innovation and collaboration

There are also a series of key words/theme that are listed in the Submission Guidelines that your abstract should align with – please select as many as applicable.

We are inviting abstracts that focus on a program, project or pilot that didn’t work, sharing the reasons why and what was learnt. This is a great learning opportunity, especially for other organisations who may be heading down a similar path.

You are also encouraged, where appropriate and applicable, to include people with lived experience/tenants/consumers as presenters.  If you intend to include someone with lived experience as part of the presentation, please indicate that in your abstract submission.

During the review process, abstracts will be evaluated considering the following:

  • relevance to the conference themes
  • originality of ideas
  • significance of results
  • application of existing ideas in ways that provide new insights and progress
  • usefulness to audience, clarity and timeliness.

Research related abstracts should refer to research that will be completed before NHC23 and comprehensive results, not preliminary, should be available and shared at the conference.  Pilot projects should also be completed and results available to be shared.

Abstracts that refer to policy or practice should relate to best practice case studies or innovative developments relating to housing issues.

Please read through the Submission Guidelines before you submit an abstract and you can find the terms and conditions here.  

If you have any questions please email or call 03 9660 2309.
