Need a bit more time? Thinking about attending?

Submissions for conference abstracts and workshop proposals are being accepted through 14 April 2021.

For those wishing to facilitate a workshop please be aware that the requested abstract is simply a short description of the workshop in ~2-4 sentences. We are happy to update the workshop description after submission and acceptance. Any questions can be directed to nzip2021@confer.co.nz.

To make a submission or for more information go to the Call for Papers page on the event website nzip2021.org.

A big thank you to those who have already submitted. Due to the fall of the holidays, and in recognition of a particularly busy time for educators, some additional time allowance is being offered to ensure strong representation from all physics fields.

For those who are wondering whether this is the conference for them – we are planning on having conference offerings across a range of important educational areas such as pedagogy, review of achievement standards, matauranga Maori to name just a few.

The early-bird conference registration deadline is 31 May and acceptances are to be issued by 30 April.

Educators can visit the PPTA Grant to attend subject association conferences page for more information about applying for a grant of up to $700 per year. The page includes a link to complete a pre-approval form for support to attend this conference.

COVID Precautions: NZIP is committed to holding its biennial conference this year as a key deliverable to its members. You can have confidence in registering for our conference. If COVID causes a disruption to the live, in person conference planned for 12-14 July in Wellington, NZIP will not seek to postpone or cancel. Instead, we will adapt the event into an alternative format on the same dates, or as close to same dates as possible, to ensure the physics community has this important opportunity to share and exchange knowledge.

Kind regards,
Helen Housden
PLD Analyst
