‘Travelling Stories’ is the conference with a difference.
A collaboration between the Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology (ASHA) and Interpretation Australia (IA), the conference will travel, moving through venues from Launceston to Hobart via key natural and cultural heritage places throughout Tasmania.
The theme “Travelling Stories: connecting people and landscapes” aims to pull people together, fostering a greater understanding for all of the environments in which we live.

We are seeking proposals for sessions at the conference; for details please download the Call for Sessions – see below.
To facilitate the timely completion of the conference programme we ask that session proposals be submitted to the Organising Committee by Monday 3 July. Proposals should take the form of a session title, a 150 word (maximum) description of its aims and scope that can also serve as text for the printed programme, and name(s), address(es) and contact details for the session convenor(s).

Please read these instructions carefully before registering – when you do start a registration you may wish to right-click on the registration page link below and open the ‘Book Online’ page in a new browser tab; this will allow you to keep these instructions open while you book they are also available as a pdf file – see below).
Please note that a separate booking must be made for each person attending the conference; the only exception is that one additional ticket per person may be purchased for the conference dinner.
