Held on Friday 19 October 2012 at the Deakin University Melbourne City Centre. Led by Professor Deb Verhoeven, the symposium was designed to enable leading digital humanities researchers to showcase their most innovative practices. An enthusiastic cohort of faculty and HDR students from multiple fields of research made this an event to remember.
CMII held its first symposium at the Waterfront campus on 10 and 11 November, 2010. The symposium consisted of a series of discussions based around each major project, in which progress on the sub-projects was presented and discussion of future directions and collaborations invited. Professor Ian Howard, Dean of the College of Fine Arts from the University of New South Wales, and Associate Professor Anna Gibbs from the University of Western Sydney were mentors at the symposium, and offered constructive critique on the basis of the presentations given in the context of their own research leadership and experience.
The symposium was attended by some 65 people, members or associate members of CMII, and the feedback was extremely positive: 'Most inspiring symposium ever'; 'I am excited about the synergy, and excited to be here'; 'Collaboration, curiosity and collegiality'; 'Lots of links; making connections, space for sharing views'.

A/Prof David McCooey, Dr Cassandra Atherton, and Dr Vickery presented alongside with three postgraduate students, Katie Hansord, Ella O'Keefe, and Janine Gibson. The symposium attracted a good audience from Deakin as well as a number of postgraduates from the University of Melbourne.
The "Poetry and the Contemporary" symposium was held at Victorian Trades Hall between 7-9 July. It was convened by Dr Ann Vickery and leading Australian poet Michael Farrell. There were 39 presenters and two evenings of readings and launches. Besides a sizeable number of New Zealand delegates, delegates also came from the United Kingdom, Singapore, and across Australia.
This was held on 27 October 2011 at the Deakin Melbourne City Centre. Convened by Prof Deb Verhoeven, A/Prof Andrea Witcomb, Dr Katya Johanson, A/Prof Hilary Glow, Dr Leonie Rutherford, and A/Prof Kim Vincs, the symposium featured a panel of industry representatives, including Jude Kelly (Artistic Director, Southbank Centre, London), Tony Sweeney (Director, ACMI), and Jenny Buckland (CEO, Australian Children's Television Foundation).
This one-day event was held at the Geelong Waterfront campus, 28 October 2011, and was convened by Paul Carter to discuss new opportunities for arts/sciences research partnerships at Deakin University. This symposium took advantage of the visit of Jude Kelly, OBE, (Artistic Director, London Southbank) and its goal was to identify key areas of public interest, community governance and sustainability practice that research partnerships between scientists, artists and workers in the humanities can and should explore together.
Held on 2 December 2011at the Warrnambool Art Gallery, this event launched a new community partnering initiative between CMII and Warrnambool Art Gallery (WAG). The aims were to start new conversations about the role of institutions in place making, to discuss the goals of the new relationship between CMII and WAG, and to exhibit recent work, which forms part of CMII's regional research program, 'Flows and Catchments'. The afternoon involved conversations between Warrnambool Art Gallery's director, John Cunningham, and members of the Flows and Catchments team, a Flows and Catchments "show and tell" and drinks for members of the WAG, Deakin and general Warrnambool communities.
