AIFS 2018 Conference - Call for abstracts now open
Abstract submissions close: Friday 8 December 2017
Note: This closing date is much earlier than previous conferences.

The main focus of our 2018 conference will be what matters most to families in the 21st century? What’s working – and not working – for families and what futures can we create that strengthen family relationships and foster social and economic wellbeing?

Can we imagine a future where “what matters most to families” drives the work of researchers, policy makers, and service providers?

To help answer some of these questions and generate the discussion, we want to hear from a variety of different perspectives, including from service providers, researchers, policy makers and community workers. We are keen to see new presentation ideas that can maximise discussion between presenters and audience. We therefore welcome symposia and workshop proposals.
