Organisers of the 25th International Project Management Association (IPMA) World Congress have released a final call for abstracts, with the deadline this Friday, 1 April 2011.

Hosted by the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM), the IPMA World Congress will be held in Brisbane, Australia, over 9-12 October 2011.

The program chair is AIPM Life Fellow Dr Lynn Crawford who will, with a group of leading project management practitioners, be responsible for the quality of the congress program.

Under the umbrella theme ‘Delivering the Promise’, this year’s IPMA World Congress will accept papers in seven key sub-themes:

  1. Social and corporate responsibility, incorporating the environment, sustainability, community engagement and ethics.
  2. Practitioners and the occupation, incorporating competencies, professional development, recognition, reward and empowerment.
  3. Clients and stakeholders, incorporating benefits realisation, identification and expectations, return on investment, risk reduction, quality delivery.
  4. Practices and methods, incorporating benchmarking, best practice governance, best practice methodologies, tools and techniques.
  5. The future, incorporating academic research, general research, trends, possibilities.
  6. The Australian Experience, incorporating case studies and practical experience.
  7. The International Experience, incorporating case studies and practical experience.

“The Congress theme ‘Delivering the Promise’ strikes at the very core of what project and program management is fundamentally about. We promise our customers specific outcomes—our challenge then becomes delivering on those promises,” said Dr Bill Young, AIPM National President.

“The Congress will present us with challenging ideas and provide a unique opportunity to learn and network with colleagues and specialists from around the world.”
