We're doing things a little differently this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are very excited to announce the PLAWA 'Deconstructed' Conference 2021. Instead of our traditional Conference, we will be hosting one-day conference streams throughout the months of May, June, July and August at a centrally located venue in Perth, Western Australia. 

We are calling for abstracts for stream topics detailed below, that highlight best practice and excellence in technology, community initiatives, projects research, strategic planning and industry case studies. The call for abstracts will close at midnight on Sunday 25th April 2021.

Stream topics and dates are:

- Leadership & Management (Friday 28th May)
- Leisure & Fitness Facility Management (Friday 11th June)
- Leisure & Social Planning (Thursday 24th June)
- Community Sports (Friday 23rd July)
- Events & Recreational Tourism (Friday 30th July)
- Parks & Environment (Friday 6th August)

All abstract submissions will be subject to review. Authors should ensure that the following criteria are met in their abstract submission:

- The topic is relevant and important to the chosen stream.
- Subject matter is original or innovative.
- Presentation must add to the knowledge-base of the discipline.

Abstracts should be limited to 350 words. If you require a larger word count, please email plawa@parksleisure.com.au with your abstract.

Opportunities for Presenting:
The Organising Committee seeks to support innovation in the delivery of ideas. We encourage you to think of the best way of engaging with your audience, sharing your experience and generating exploration and learning.

Abstract authors may be asked to re frame or further develop their exploration; or explore a collaborative presentation with an author who has submitted a similarly themed abstract.

Presentations will vary in time according to the topic of presentation.
There will be Q& A for all sessions except during the 15 min lightning talks.

Tips for Presenting an Abstract
It may be an advantage to you to watch a few Ted Talks before your presentation – https://www.ted.com/playlists/226/before_public_speaking
