Invitation to participate

You are invited to the 2013 International Conference of the Australian Association for Research in Education (AARE).

The conference will be held at the Hilton Adelaide from Sunday 1 to Thursday 5 December.

Adelaide is an elegant city known for its colonial stone architecture, expansive parklands, lively festivals and incredible sense of space. Explore the museums and libraries of North Terrace, dine on dedicated ‘eat streets’ or picnic in gardens that sprawl over almost half the city. Go bike riding in Botanic Park or row past rose gardens in Rymill Park. Swim with dolphins or learn to sail in Glenelg or fish from the jetty in Henley.

Just beyond the city centre you’ll find the picturesque Adelaide Hills and the world-class wineries of the Barossa Valley.

We warmly invite all education researchers and educators from Australia, the Asia-Pacific and around the world to join us in Adelaide for a very significant and unique conference event.
