Calls for conference presentation and workshop proposals are now closed

We’re excited to invite you to submit a proposal for the conference and/or for a conference workshop. 

We are Weaving Evaluation into the Whole! We encourage you to share stories about the value of evaluation and inclusive evaluation practice. We want to hear about innovation and adaptation with your practice and learn from other evaluators, decision-makers and stakeholder. Afterall, Evaluation is for Everyone!

This year delegates and presenters are meeting face-to-face in Adelaide, Australia. Come along to share, network, and learn about what is happening in evaluation, and evaluation-related fields, in Australia, New Zealand, the Australasian region, and across the world.

Interested in reviewing conference proposals or ignite presentations?

Expressions of interest close 15 March 2022.

We are seeking your assistance to review the conference proposals. The call for conference proposals closes on 15 March 2022. If you volunteer, you will need to review the proposals from late March 2022. There is a two-week deadline for review.

This year’s conference proposals review will be a double-blind review. This means that author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. The review process is fully automated and anonymous. You will be provided with instructions to guide your review when using the online assessment tool. Reviewers' names will be published in the conference abstract book.
