About the 12th Research Symposium

CAPS Australia, established in 2006, is the prime organisation that represents the interests of Chinese research students, young scholars and visiting academics who live and work in Australia. It is a leading organisation for academic exchanges between Australia and China and represents an active and outstanding part of the Chinese talents in Australia.  

The annual research symposium is the flagship event of CAPS Australia for fostering academic exchanges and research innovations across different disciplines among Chinese scholars and professionals in Australia. The participants include PhD students, young scholars and distinguished professors from different universities and institutes, joining together to share and celebrate research achievements. Since 2007, the symposium has been populating all top universities across Victoria, attracting an increasing number of participants including renowned scholars from both Australia and China. It is arguably the largest and most influential one-day multi-disciplinary academic symposium in Victoria.
