API 2021 Summer School Planning Survey
Please complete feedback by 9 September 2020
The iconic API Summer School will be on again in 2021, and we are tentatively scheduling the 2-week event for Sunday 7 - Friday 19 February 2021 in sunny South Australia.
Will you join us … as a delegate, an expert speaker, or as a syndicate project leader?
We know that the Summer School is highly valued by many in the API community, and we are committed to providing this valuable opportunity to develop our future leaders. But given the increased uncertainty we are all experiencing, we would appreciate your feedback on your likely participation. This will assist us in securing appropriate venues and other planning.
At present, we are planning for the traditional model of the residential summer school (with extra precautions) but are also looking at other options and would appreciate an indication of your interest in participating in these options.
Increasing female participation:
We’d also like to issue a challenge to the API community: Can we pass our 2020 record for gender diversity of summer school delegates (25% of delegates)? We encourage you to proactively engage your female team members and to support their participation in the 2021 summer school as a delegate, expert and/or syndicate leader. Our target is 40% of delegates and speakers to be female.
Why come to summer school 2021?

Do you want to be one of the 36 delegates to attend for 2021?
Our 2020 event featured 60+ expert speakers, built comprehensive connections between delegates and with the experts, syndicate projects for the delegates, site tours, and social events.
Indicative pricing (based on 2020 costs, to be confirmed):
What do the different roles mean?
- Delegate: attend the full two-week program, including pre-work with your assigned syndicate (and pay the registration fees)
- Expert speaker: attend for a day or two to share your insights and to connect with the delegates (we cover your accommodation costs)
- Syndicate leader: contribute a project brief for a team of ~4 delegates to work on prior to and during the School, and to connect with the syndicate group a number of times over a 2-month period (we cover your accommodation costs). 9 leaders sought in total.
