Abstract Submission

We welcome the submission of abstracts to present discussion papers, the findings from empirical research and presentations of new or promising service/practice developments.

There are four types of presentation formats:

Posters - these are static displays of work that will be placed on display boards for the duration of the conference

Workshops - these are ninety minutes sessions that involve interactive learning and the dissemination of training and/or skills, rather than an extended lecture. Abstracts must specify how participants will be involved in the session

Symposium - these are ninety minute sessions that include three or more presentations that address a common theme. Each symposium has a named chair/convenor who is responsible for identifying the contributors to the symposium, ensuring they submit abstracts and attend the conference. The chair/convenor may also contribute a paper to the symposium. The chair/convenor is required to provide an overview abstract for the symposium but individual contributors submit their own abstracts whcih should have been agreed with the chair/convenor beforehand. The Scientific Committee will communicate with the symposium chair/convenor who is then responsible for communication with the other contributors. This format is particularly well suited to those who are presenting Daphne funded projects

Oral Paper - this involves a thirty minute oral presentation of the key points from some research or new practice development. Presenters should be able to convey a description of the research or practice, and to draw out the key learning. Three oral papers will be presented in each ninety minute session
