The theme of the conference is 'The art of science'. We hope to explore links between science and art as well as the art of 'doing science'. Tasmania has a reputation for excellence in both the science and art communities. There are many examples of scientists who showcase and communicate their science through art and many examples of artists who use science as inspiration and develop works that communicate complex science to the general community.

Home Economics! Action! Futures! is a theme that should resonate with all home economics professionals, whether they work in education or business, or remain engaged with but no longer as active in the profession. In 2017 it will be essential for the home economics profession to take strong and confident actions related to new junior and senior curricula to deliver rigorous and exciting programs that encourage and enable young people to actively promote sustainable families, sustainable food futures and sustainable textiles futures. The conference will help home economics professionals in schools achieve this and inspire all home economics professionals to model actions that exemplify the home economics values of wellbeing, sustainability and equity.
