Alliance Down Under 2014 - Call for Proposals Extended!


ADU14 - Call for Proposals Extended!

One of the key elements to making this conference a success is your participation! The standard of presentations at last year's conference was excellent and the organising committee is confident that with your help, 2014 can be even better! This can only happen with your support so we need you to get involved by submitting proposals for presentations for the conference.

Presentations will be 45 minutes including time for questions. There will again be five tracks: Technical, HR, Finance, Student and CRM. Or perhaps you may wish to present on an issue across tracks such as training, security, use of dashboards, reporting strategies, life cycle management or other exciting topic!

Please click here to submit your presentation. The deadline for submissions is 5 September 14

We are also looking at ways outside the presentations to allow delegates to identify common areas of interest at the beginning of the conference. More details on that later.
