Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd) Conference, May 2019

The “9th IPEd National Editors Conference: Beyond the Page” will be rolling out the red carpet for you in Melbourne, Australia, in May 2019. In addition to delegates from across the country, we anticipate also welcoming colleagues from New Zealand, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and elsewhere in our region, as well as Canada, the United States, South Africa and further. 

The conference is an exciting opportunity for editors and other publishing professionals, researchers, students and associates to connect, learn and celebrate best practice in editing and publishing. With our theme of Beyond the Page, the conference will showcase current professional practice and research, highlighting emerging trends in:

• academic editing

• ethics in editing

• OH&S for editors

• editing for accessibility

• marketing your editing business

• editing across platforms and trends in information & communication technologies

• and more.

As well as the formal and professional development aspects of the conference, there will be opportunities to socialize and network, including a welcome cocktail party, the Gala Dinner, tours and (for the more introverted) intimate breakfast, lunch and dinner gatherings.

As the coffee capital of Australia – and a mecca for foodies and art, cultural and shopping aficionados – Melbourne is sure to delight.

9th IPEd Editors Conference: 8-10 May 2019, Pullman Melbourne On the Park.
