Call for Presentations Reminder

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, 2016 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!

The primary speaker for every session proposal accepted will receive a free registration to the ANZ Alliance Down Under 2016 conference! Please submit your presentation ideas by going to the ‘Presentation Guidelines’ Tab within the ‘Alliance Down Under 2016’ website, which can be accessed through HEUG Online.

The deadline for submissions is 9 September 16.

If you are not a current member of the HEUG please ensure you join ASAP. You will need to be a member in order to register for the conference and for presentation submissions. Membership information can be found here or if you require further assistance, email Conference Support: or call +1 (602) 734-5356.
