We invite oral and poster submissions. Please note, conference registration is a separate process. If your abstract is accepted, you must also register for the conference, otherwise your presentation will be removed from the timetable.
Your submission should link with one of the conference's four themes:
- System transformation
- Relationships that support recovery
- Recovery in crisis
- Keeping well in daily life
Please state whether your abstract is for an oral or poster presentation.
The oral presentations will take place in parallel sessions throughout the conference. Each presentation will be allocated a 10-minute slot, to give presenters the opportunity to outline their study rather than give a very detailed description of research. We encourage you to include contact details (e.g.email) so people can connect with you after your talk. Grouped or symposium submissions are welcome. Please indicate in your abstract submission form (section 6) any talks your submission is paired with.
All poster presentations will be displayed for the duration of the conference. The format required is A1 (59.5cm x 84.1cm, or 23.4 inches x 33.1 inches). Posters will be judged by conference attenders in the People’s Choice Poster Award. Criteria will be scientific value, clarity of presentation and visual impact. The posters receiving the most votes will win prizes.
Deadline for submission
The closing date for abstract submission is 31 January 2014. Abstracts received after this deadline may not be considered.
What happens after submission?
All submissions will be considered by the conference's Scientific Advisory Board and you will be notified of the Board's decision by 15 February 2014. The Scientific Advisory Board may re-allocate an abstract to a different theme or to a different type [oral or poster] from the preference you state in your submission. Board members may also decide that it is not appropriate to present your work at this conference. Their decision is final.
Abstract submission form
Please complete the form in English. By submitting an abstract with one more than one author, you are confirming that all authors have approved the submission. You are also agreeing that your abstract is published in the Book of Abstracts.
Please note: oral presentations will be allocated a 10-minute slot and we are asking presenters to outline their study or work rather than give detailed descriptions of research. The format for poster presentations is A1 [59.5cm x 84.1cm, or 23.4 inches x 33.1 inches].
