IPEd Conference

Congratulations and thank you to Editors Queensland for organising a fantastic Brisbane conference. Our next conference for the love of words ... will be hosted by Editors Victoria in Melbourne in May 2019. More information coming soon.

Every two years, one of IPEd’s branches hosts a national editing conference.

In 2003, the Council of Australian Societies of Editors (CASE) began a program of biennial national conferences hosted by the state societies with the first held in Brisbane. Since IPEd’s establishment, these have been named IPEd conferences, managed in turn by one of IPEd’s branches. The conferences which have been held to date are listed below.

Editors from across Australia and overseas, gather to share ideas. The conferences have promoted contact among editors, increased research and development in the profession, and strengthened the branches by developing their management skills and attracting members.
