ANZSOC has always encouraged and promoted research conducted by students and new scholars, and the ANZSOC Postgraduate (PG) and Early Career Researcher (ECR) Conference is one example of that commitment. Last year the 5th PG and ECR Conference was held in Geelong and attracted 60 participants from all walks of academic life both nationally and internationally, including honours and PhD students, early career researchers and senior academics. The day was a huge success and participants particularly valued the collegial atmosphere and the networking opportunities.

The papers presented on the day showcased the diversity of research topics prevalent in Australian and New Zealand criminology. As a result of the substantial increase of abstracts submitted compared with previous years we decided to introduce a poster session, which was held during lunch. This session was well received among participants and generated a wealth of discussion. In between the high quality presentations and posters a number of early career researchers and senior academics talked about life after the PhD and also provided valuable publishing tips. We would like to thank Professor Sharon Pickering, Professor Chester Britt, Dr Lorana Bartels, Dr Jesse Cale, Dr Anna Eriksson and Ian McGinn for their invaluable contribution to the success of the day.

The 2011 PG and ECR Conference was also the setting for the inaugural Monash Postgraduate Prize, given to the most outstanding presentation of criminological research by a post-graduate student either by paper or poster. All participants were eligible to vote and the winner of the 2011 prize was Helena Menih, who presented her PhD research on homeless women.

In previous years the PG and ECR Conference has been organised by the ANZSOC Student and Early Career Researcher Sub-Committee. For the first time ever this responsibility was handed over to an organising committee consisting of postgraduate students. We are honoured to have been entrusted with the responsibility of organising this eventful day and we hope that future organisers will have as much fun planning and executing the day as we did. We look forward to this year’s PG and ECR Conference in Auckland and hope to see you all there.
