The calendar lists events (symposia, conferences, seminars, workshops), both Australian and overseas, that are
- of more than local interest
- relevant to youth research or youth work, or practitioners working with young people
Event flyers can be distributed for a fee via our print journal (more details).
- ACYS is not the organiser of any of the events listed on the calendar, and is not responsible for the maintenance of weblinks cited by the calendar.
- The events listed on our online calendar are sourced from information deemed to be reliable. However:
Before acting on the calendar information, check the latest details about an event with its organiser(s) in all instances.
- ACYS reserves the right not to list an event on its calendar.
- While ACYS endeavours to include all major events relevant to youth studies and youth research, this list may not be exhaustive. The inclusion or omission of an event on the calendar is not an endorsement or recommendation by ACYS.
Besides listing an event on the calendar (free of charge), we can help conference organisers to distribute flyers about youth-related events for a fee:
Flyers can be posted (for a fee) along with mailouts of the hard copy edition of our journal, Youth Studies Australia. Because bookings for mailout space are in high demand, you need to contact us well in advance of your event if you wish to take advantage of this service. More details
