BOBC 2022

Keeping the needs of people with intellectual disability front and centre in challenging times.

Tuesday 4 October – Melbourne & Wednesday 5 October – Hobart. Both days available online.

Over the past year, the disability sector has been confronted with increased and conflicting requirements.

Navigating the evolving pandemic and faced with increased funding cuts, our 2022 Building Opportunities, Building Communities Conference presents speakers and workshops to consider the connection between research and best practice.

As the sector faces multiple demands, research offers guidance about how we can improve the services we offer. A research based approach can also drive a broader understanding across Government and the NDIS on why the right funding of supports is essential.


Call for Papers

Opportunities include Podium Presentations, Lightning Talks and Workshops. Further information on each format can be found here.


The final presentation proposal deadline is 29 July 2022.

Presentation proposals will be reviewed and responded to on an ongoing basis to encourage early submission. We will aim to get back to you within four weeks of your submission.

If you have any questions relating to the conference or have trouble completing this form, please contact Sally Crates on
