The Australian Public Sector Anti-Corruption Conference (APSACC) is Australia's premier corruption prevention forum.

The next conference will be hosted by the Independent Commission Against Corruption Northern Territory (ICAC NT) and will be held from 29 to 31 July in Darwin, NT. The event starts with an optional day of workshops followed by the 2-day conference. The conference will be a hybrid event combining in-person and virtual attendance.

 The APSACC planning committee is seeking abstracts from leading practitioners, executives and academics on topics relating to the theme ‘Meeting the integrity challenge: the power of innovation, diversity and collaboration’, which may include:

·         engaging regional and remote communities in corruption prevention

·         the most prevalent corruption risks in different sectors of government and law enforcement

·         key factors and environments that facilitate corruption and misconduct risks

·         organisational functions that are particularly vulnerable

·         effective prevention strategies and early intervention systems

·         appropriate and effective controls, and how they should be implemented

·         using behavioural insights to promote integrity

·         organisational responses to incidents of corruption and misconduct

·         innovation in anti-corruption activities

The APSACC program development and marketing committee welcomes abstracts that concern the public sector as one entity or as discrete areas of the sector, for example local government, tertiary education or policing. Abstracts about specific high-risk functions carried out by areas of the public sector are also encouraged.


The conference is attended by over 500 Australian and international delegates, including:


The APSACC program development and marketing committee welcomes:

·         individual presentations

·         panel presentations – proposing multiple complementary speakers on a single topic

·         roundtable presentations – proposing a topic or research that could be discussed by 3 to 6 presenters
