Several researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making & Society (ADM+S) are slated to present at the 2021 Australian Social Policy Conference (ASPC) being held online over the next two weeks from October 25 to November 5.
The biennial conference, hosted by the UNSW Social Policy Research Centre, is the country’s leading event for the discussion and dissemination of social policy research.
The ASPC provides a forum for leading national and international researchers and analysts from government and community social welfare sectors in Australia and internationally to present their research findings and debate their implications, attracting participants from academia, government and the community social welfare sector internationally.
“This is the first time the conference has featured sessions on the role of digital technology in social policy and service delivery. The centrality of people from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society demonstrate how its work is leading these important research agenda, policy developments and public debates,” said ADM+S Chief Investigator Professor Paul Henman who is chairing a number of sessions at the conference.
