Held every two years, OCIS is the premier conference in international studies held in Australasia. It brings together scholars working across all fields of international studies, and is known for its relaxed yet intellectually stimulating atmosphere.

Attended by leading scholars in the field internationally, it is an opportunity for junior scholars to take advantage of and to showcase their evolving ideas.

The ninth OCIS builds on previous successful conferences hosted by various universities and in 2020 it will be held back in Canberra hosted by the Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs, The Australian National University.
