Call for abstracts

We encourage researchers and practitioners to submit an abstract to be part of the #NHCDarwin program. The NHC aims to present sessions in line with policy development and pertinent housing priorities, sparking diverse, evidence-based discussion.

With a renewed focus on housing future communities, now is the time to lead with innovative best practice in the sector. Presentation opportunities may come in a variety of formats – including standard presentations, panel or workshop participation and Think Tank sessions. Authors are asked to be flexible with the final presentation style. This enables a tailored, innovative program that maximises audience participation and keeps topics alive and engaging.

The call for abstracts to fill a limited number of opportunities within the NHC 2019 program will close 31 January 2019.

Topics may include

  • Indigenous housing and homelessness
  • Housing as social infrastructure
  • Partnering with the private sector
  • Best practice in integrated housing support/tenancy management
  • Local government and housing policy
  • Affordable housing construction and design (urban, regional, international)
  • Social impact investment
  • Housing for people with disability
  • Financing affordable housing
  • Population growth, cities and decentralisation
  • Growth of the private rental sector
  • Sustainable housing and energy costs
