REES AAEE 2O21 Research in Engineering Education Symposium & Australasian Association for Engineering Education 1

Call for Papers and Workshops


The Research in Engineering Education Symposium and Australasian Association for Engineering Education Annual Conference (REES AAEE 2021) will be held jointly on 5-8 December 2021:

  • face-to-face at The University of Western Australia, Perth, Western Australia
  • hybrid during Perth business hours, and
  • online outside Perth business hours.

 We are delighted to invite submissions of papers and workshop proposals.

Paper and Workshop Sessions

Themed clusters of papers will be presented in 90-minute sessions including a 3-minute recording for each paper followed by discussion on all papers in the session, and culminating in an output for other sessions on the theme. Each paper will be presented and discussed in a hybrid session and in an online session at a time suitable for participants sleeping during daylight in Perth. Paper sessions on the same theme will be connected throughout the conference. 

Workshops will be 90 minutes. Workshop proposers may nominate their preference for their workshop to be facilitated face-to-face in Perth, facilitated in hybrid mode during Perth business hours, or online only out of Perth business hours.

Full papers may be submitted for review, even if an abstract was not submitted. Authors will have missed the opportunity for feedback based on the abstract.
