Conference 2022


AMS wmap 27-30

68th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Australian Mammal Society




We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting an in-person annual meeting for the Society for the first time since the pandemic started.

This will be held in Perth from the 27th to the 30th of September 2022. The Perth AMS Council is now busy planning the venue and pre- and post-conference activities with a rough plan as follows:

Conference program

Date Activity
Tues 27 Sept Student and ECR workshop followed by conference registration and welcome drinks mixer.
Wed 28 Sept Day 1 of conference followed by Student and Old fart’s dinners.
Thurs 29 Sept Day 2 of conference followed by AGM and conference dinner at Hackett Hall in Boola Bardip (TBC)
Fri 30 Sept Day 3 of conference concluding with student awards.
Sat/Sun 1 Oct Post-conference tours (TBC).


Abstract submission will be open in June. We would like to make this conference as accessible as possible to members who may be unable to travel to Perth and propose to run a hybrid conference where a small number of online talks can be pre-recorded and played on the day with the conference streamed online via Zoom. Contact the President if you’d like to be on the organising committee or have any questions.
