Conference

Now an online event

With the Conference only two short months away, and the ongoing uncertainties of current and potential snap lockdowns due to the pandemic, many conference attendees and speakers cannot commit to travel to Melbourne for our event in June.
After many attempts and multiple postponements, unfortunately, the COVID gods continue to work against us. The Organising Committee, ASMIRT and NZIMRT have made the decision to make the ASMIRT-NZIMRT 2021 Conference a Virtual Only event.
Making this decision now provides consistency for organisers, exhibitors and attendees, and has re-ignited our team to develop a conference that fulfils the original aims that we had set around three years ago; to deliver a conference that was innovative, modern and would set a different model to build upon into the future. We will now certainly meet those aims.

About .

The Victorian Branch of the Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (ASMIRT), along with our colleagues from the New Zealand Institute of Medical Radiation Technology (NZIMRT) warmly welcome delegates for the 4th combined ASMIRT-NZIMRT conference, to be held online from Friday 4 June to Monday 7 June 2021 and is named Re-vision.

The theme of “Vision” offers a broad range of options and for us, a focus of innovation, imagination and ideas. Our mission statement is to deliver a conference that provides high quality content and delivery of presentations. We also have a focus on presentations that introduce new and emerging technologies and techniques and clinically applicable content, with online opportunities for delegates to gather and network.

We look forward to showcasing our talented presenters and providing a conference that embraces the vision of all who attend.

What will the online offering look like?

ASMIRT and NZIMRT are excited to be offering our first virtual conference.

Join us online to experience the 200+ oral presentations, 175+ presenters, earn 65+ CPD hours, engage with fellow colleagues and sponsors, and much more.

Importantly, our emmersive 3D virtual platform offers the ability to take notes on sessions, facilitate meetings and discussion forums, and virtual delegates will all be able to submit questions to the speakers via the session chair live.

The platform also allows for virtual delegates to interact and participate in all aspects of the conference including access to exhibitors, networking groups, posters and more. It encourages interactive engagement with the session topics with audience polling, trivia questions, competitions and games.

Everyone can get involved with our Discussion Forums which includes a live chat feature, and attendees can interact with each other during a session in a secure virtual environment – so jump in and stay engaged! There’s also a meeting hub where attendees can connect with friends and colleagues also attending and request to connect, start up a conversation via text, video call or messenger or schedule a meeting which will then be added to your timeline.

All attendees will have access to the releasable conference recordings, on demand after the event.

Testimonials .

The food was fantastic and I loved the entertainment at both events, the bands were amazing!
The student conference was excellent and well organised. It was a good chance to hear about my future career pathways and get to know students from other places.
This conference exceeded all my expectations, I have come away invigorated and will recommend (rant) to any MRTs in MZ back in NZ who will listen to come next year!!
Excellent international key note speakers, they were of high quality and the information they provided was topical and engaging. Especially enjoyed presentations by Justin Pigg and Luke Oakden-Raynor.
Absolutely one of the best conferences I have ever been to. I loved that you can chose a talk that interests you out of five or six options. I also liked how some were combined so you get an understanding of the other sides needs and wants
This conference was a healing one for me as I'd not been for over a decade. I caught up with some really beautiful people who shared info from the past that has helped me to a brighter future.
Person centred care and the patient stories were very powerful! I really enjoyed these sessions
