Conference Format Update

The VH2021 committee is excited to announce a new format for the 12th Australasian Viral Hepatitis Conference.

Continuing with the theme of innovation, the committee has decided to move away from the traditional face-to-face conference planned for Brisbane and adopt a hub model for the conference in 2021.

This year we have faced unprecedented challenges, and we learned how much, as humans, we value being together and sharing experiences.

The VH2021 committee believes that this model will allow us to provide quality content and the opportunity for face-to-face interaction, while still ensuring the safety of our delegates and speakers.

So, what is a hub conference?

Each day of the three-day conference will take place in a different location allowing our community to come together to learn, connect, network, and collaborate.

All three days will be live streamed, allowing delegates who are not able to attend one of the three hubs to join via a virtual platform. This will allow delegates to have one day of face-to-face interaction and networking, and then attend the other two days virtually from their homes or offices.

Where are the hubs?

Sunday 30 May: Brisbane, QLD

Monday 31 May: Sydney, NSW

Tuesday 1 June: Auckland, NZ

Join your peers and register to attend one of the above hubs or join virtually. Now is the time for our sector to reunite and collaborate as we adjust to the longer-term impacts of COVID-19 and continue our vital work in the fight against viral hepatitis.

Full conference registration allows access to one of the above hubs and full access to the virtual content for all three days.

Abstract Deadline Extended!

After what has been an extremely busy year for our sector, many are looking forward to taking a well-deserved break over the summer period.

With that in mind, the committee have decided to extend the abstract deadline.

NEW DEADLINE: 11.59pm AEDT Sunday 7 February 2021

*There will be no further extensions to this submission deadline*

We encourage you to showcase your work as part of the program for the leading multidisciplinary viral hepatitis conference in Australasia, as we look towards the future with innovative ideas for reaching hepatitis elimination targets.

Submit your abstract before 11.59pm AEDT Sunday 7 February 2021 to ensure you don’t miss out!
