The 2020 Australia & New Zealand Society of Evidence Based Policing (ANZSEBP) Conference will be held 5 – 7 August at Vodafone NZ HQ, Smales Farm in Auckland. This year’s conference brings another packed and world class group of speakers together.

All abstracts should not exceed 250 words and consist of original work.

All authors whose abstracts are selected to be presented at conference are required to register for the conference and pay the registration fee, to confirm their attendance at the conference.  Travel and accommodation costs are also at the author’s expense.

Video and audio clips should be embedded in your PowerPoint slides rather than linking to external files.

Presenters will take their Power Point slides to the conference on a memory stick, where an audiovisual technician will load your presentation.

All slides will be run from a central presentation computer. However, if you have a complex presentation, which includes multiple media files, we suggest you bring your own laptop as a backup in case of difficulties loading your presentation.


Each lecture room will be equipped for the presentation of Powerpoint slides and include a data projector, computer (with external speakers and internet), lectern and microphone. Other audiovisual aids are not available.
