DCAM is the Centre’s flagship meeting for members. It is the centrepiece of knowledge-sharing and networking, with the aim to create links across members and the Centre’s six university nodes. DCAM is critical in establishing relationships, research teams, research agendas and project development and planning. It’s also an opportunity to take a breath and enjoy the Queensland sun and surf! Key information about DCAM has been outlined below. Further details and the program will be available shortly.

If you have further questions, please contact your Node Business Support Officer or email info@digitalchild.org.au


All Centre members are invited to attend DCAM Noosa, however funding for in-person attendance is at the discretion of your node. For those unable to attend in-person, a selection of sessions will be available online via Zoom. Please contact your supervisor or Node Business Support Officer for further details. 


Registrations will open in early July 2022.


The DCAM Noosa program will be available in early July 2022.


DCAM will be held in person at Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas in Noosa, Queensland with some sessions available online via Zoom. Recordings of the online sessions will also be made available. 

Flights and transport (arrivals and departures)

Flights into Brisbane or the Sunshine Coast (Maroochydore airport) will be arranged by your Node Business Support Officer. Flight costs will be funded by nodes.

For those arriving in/departing from Brisbane, airport transfers to and from QUT Kelvin Grove campus will need to be organised by individual attendees. A chartered bus between QUT Kelvin Grove and Noosa will be organised – attendees will be able to book a spot on the bus on the registration form. Attendees can arrange their own transport to Noosa if preferred at their own cost.


Shared apartment-style accommodation at Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas has been pre-booked. If there is someone you would like to share an apartment with, you will be able to indicate this in the registration form. While every effort will be made to accommodate your request, we cannot guarantee they will be met. If you would like to extend your stay, please organise this individually and at your own cost.


Breakfast, lunch, and morning and afternoon tea at the venue are included in the room package at Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas. Additionally, we’ve arranged dinner on Monday and Tuesday night. We encourage you to all to come along and have some fun with your fellow members. Dietary requirements can be specified on the registration form.

Additional meals and incidentals, such as snacks and hotel mini-bar items, will be paid for by attendees at their own cost. 


Childcare will be provided onsite and will be paid for by the Centre. Attendees can request childcare on the registration form.

SMARTer Days (25-26 August)

SMARTer Days is a training event to be held at QUT Kelvin Grove campus in Brisbane from 25-26 August, following DCAM.
