Formed in 1978, the Australian Association for Byzantine Studies is a non-profit organisation that aims to foster links between scholars, students and laypersons within Australia and New Zealand who are interested in Byzantium and related fields. The Australian Association is a member of the Association Internationale des Etudes Byzantines. It also has close working links with Byzantine groups in a number of countries. The Association supports a biennial conference, which offers the opportunity for members to present papers or to hear discussions of interest from scholars within Australia, as well as from overseas. Participation comes from a wide range of disciplines and covers a broad time span, so that papers, even when devoted to a particular theme, are always diverse. The publication of Byzantina Australiensia is an academic series which aims to provide access to texts of the Byzantine period in translation, as well as to relevant scholarship.
