Our strategic theme is He Moana Pukepuke e Ekengia e te Waka | Navigating an evolving eResearch landscape 

This theme reflects the fast pace of technological change that is opening up new avenues for research and the change that is happening across our sector.

There are four pillars that support this theme, and we are looking for submissions from speakers across all four pillars:

  • Creating new futures – speakers from a range of disciplines showcasing researchers operating at the cutting edge of their field.
  • Evolution of eResearch Infrastructure – the enabler/infrastructure work stream talking about the trends and showcasing how researchers are using developments in technology to further their research.
  • Developing our People – focus on retaining and developing talent
  • Embedding Te Tiriti – what does best practice look like?

In addition, we are running a lightening talk session for early career researchers which gives you the opportunity to tell us about the amazing research you are doing in 5 mins or less.

Type Session Length General Details
Lightning Talk / Poster 5
Lightning Talks or Posters are focused 5 minute presentations meant to “ignite” the audience on a subject, generate awareness, and to stimulate thought and action on the subject.
Oral Presentations 20 minutes Presentations should be ~15 minutes, with an additional 5 minutes allocated for questions or follow-up discussion.
Feather (BoF)
60 minutes BoFs are run as informal sessions, often used to start a conversation on a particular topic or gather like-minded people for community-building or knowledge-sharing purposes.
Workshops ½ or full day Workshops are scheduled within the eResearch NZ programme. Contact eresearchnzconference@auckland.ac.nz if you are interested in hosting a workshop outside of the eRNZ programme.
