The Australasian Housing Researchers' Conference is a premier conference for housing researchers in Australia and New Zealand. The conference is an important annual event for housing researchers across Australasia, allowing delegates to discuss their research with their colleagues and peers. Since the conference was established in 2006 it has allowed hundreds of participants to share their insights on the housing, homelessness and housing system broadly with an academic audience.

The Australasian Housing Researchers Conference was first held in 2006 in the city of Adelaide, returning to the original venue in 2012. The five conferences in between were held in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland. The 2013 Australasian Housing Researchers' Conference (AHRC13) will be the first of its kind to be held in Western Australia.

The AHRC13 will bring to Fremantle Australia's brightest minds in housing research, attracting participants from a range of backgrounds, including academia, the government and non-government sectors.

The AHRC13 will be held at the Esplanade Hotel in the heart of the historic Fremantle, less than 30 kilometres from Perth. The event will run over two and half days from Wednesday 6th February to Friday 9th February 2013. Prior to the official conference opening on Wednesday 6th of February, relaxed evening activities will be organised for early arrivals on Tuesday evening.


The AHRC13 welcomes delegates (housing researchers) from a range of academic backgrounds, including geography, public policy, law, sociology, planning, economics, architecture and urban design, and public policy.
The AHRC13 is a perfect forum for early career researchers and postgraduate scholars to present their innovative research ideas and findings (including preliminary findings) on housing-related issues. We welcome abstracts and presentations from early career researchers and postgraduate scholars and a special reduced conference rate is available for full-time postgraduate scholars.

Early career researchers are encouraged to submit a paper for the Housing Minister's Award for Early Career Researchers (ECR Award) sponsored by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute Ltd (AHURI Ltd).
