IPEd conference goes online, keynote speakers announced

The 10th Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd) conference, originally scheduled to take place in Tasmania in late June, will now be an online event.

The organisation made the decision to run a virtual event after reviewing member survey results ‘that revealed uncertainty about attending a face-to-face event, and the possibility of further border closures’.

The organisation has also confirmed that the 11th IPEd conference, initially scheduled for 2022 in Wellington, New Zealand, has been moved to 2023 ‘to enable conference years to alternate with accreditation exam years’.

The 2021 IPEd conference will run from 28 to 30 June, with keynote speakers to include science writer Lisa-ann Gershwin, human rights practitioner and author Graeme Innes, and adjunct translator and associate professor of Indonesian at the University of Tasmania Pam Allen.
