Students are especially encouraged to present a talk.

This conference is the 39th iteration of an annual conference which for many years was called the Victorian Algebra Conference. Over the years it has become increasingly national, both in participation and location, and this is reflected in the new name. Here is an extract from the website of the Australian Algebra Group (formerly the Victorian Algebra Group) which runs the conference.

“The main aim of the annual Australian Algebra Conference is to foster communication between algebraists in Australia. We interpret algebra quite broadly, including areas such as topological algebra, algebraic logic, graph theory and coding theory. The conference has a proud tradition of encouraging talks by students: typically about one third of the talks are presented by students. The conference aims to provide graduate students in algebra with the opportunity to give their first public presentation in a relaxed and supportive environment. Each conference, the most outstanding student talk is awarded the Gordon Preston Prize.”
