The NatStats Board, along with the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), invites you to participate in the NatStats 2013 Poster Exhibition Sessions. These poster exhibitions provide an opportunity to present and discuss your current area of research, policy or work, to a targeted audience of conference delegates from government, academia, community organisations and the private sector. The poster exhibition session will be held over the lunch breaks on 13 and 14, March 2013 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Entries are invited from individuals and organisations, in both the private and public sectors.

Topics of Interest


Submissions for a poster exhibition entry should be a topic of interest that aligns with one of the four key themes of the NatStats 2013 conference:

1. Importance of big data for informing decision making

2. Barriers to using big or turbo-charged data

3. Improving the information infrastructure of Australia
4. Importance of interpreting and communicating data.


There are 15 poster exhibition spaces available. Inclusion in the poster exhibition session will entitle the presenter to accompany their poster presentation in the exhibition area, but does not include conference registration, travel, accommodation or catering at the conference. Successful entries will be provided with a poster board and a small trestle table for use at the venue. Any extra equipment for interactive displays will be at the exhibitor's own expense.
