Professor RAW Rhodes will lead the Research Day discussions in an opening address

The deadline for abstracts for an international public sector conference Research Day, which will be held at Murdoch University on October 31, has been extended.

The Research Day will be hosted by the Sir Walter Murdoch School of Public Policy and International Affairs following the Institute of Public Administration (IPAA) 2014 International Conference, which takes place at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on October 29 and 30.

Abstracts no longer than 200 words should be submitted via the conference website by Friday, August 8.

Professor Richard Higgott, Vice Chancellor of Murdoch University and Chair of the IPAA 2014 Program Committee, said the Research Day would provide added value to the IPAA 2014 Conference.

“It is an opportunity to examine more closely the current research into service delivery, policy development and public administration,” said Professor Higgott.

“In turn, it provides a platform to inform future research to help shape the public service of tomorrow.”

The institute welcomes papers and panel presentations within the broad themes of the conference. These include:

•    Fostering leadership;
•    Building trust in the public sector and beyond;
•    Connecting with business and the independent sector;
•    Shaping policy for the future;
•    Engaging with emerging nations; and
•    Regional and international trends.

IPAA 2014 keynote speaker Professor RAW Rhodes, Professor of Government (research), University of Southampton (UK) and Griffith University (AU) will lead the Research Day discussions in an opening address.

Registration for the Research Day is $120 per person and $60 for students. For more information visit the Research Day website or contact the IPAA 2014 Conference Secretariat, EECW on 08 9389 1488 or email
