Types of Abstracts

  • Research
  • Intervention / Project Abstract
  • Special Session

Research Abstract: A research abstract is an abbreviated version of your research project. In your abstract you may want to include the following information:

  • Background & Context: Give a brief context for the research / work being presented
  • Methodology: How was the research / work attempted / accomplished / achieved
  • Findings: Describe the key findings of the research / work being presented
  • Implications for practice, research, education & training, organisation / management, policy and guidance: How might your research / work inform similar initiatives in other settings / contexts

Intervention / Project Abstract: We are also interested in abstracts on innovative projects and / or interventions / intervention development, adaptation and scale-up efforts.  An intervention / project abstract should present the essential elements of your project / intervention / scale up efforts and detail its relevance to the Forum. It should outline the kind of project you implemented and/or the process you followed to implement the project, and any evaluation undertaken.  You should also note any theoretical framework or methodological assumptions. For interventions include a description of the intervention (aim, training, facilitators, delivery, length etc.); any evaluation done and efforts made with scale up if any and what you have learned so far.

Special Session: A special session abstract details pre-formed panels that address specific conference themes or key gaps in the field. Your abstract should have a clear theme connecting all of the participants' papers. In your Special Session Abstract be sure to include the theme, and a description of how the various papers address the theme. Acceptance of special sessions is based on the assurance that all presenters are able to attend the Forum.

Please note
Submission of an abstract is on the understanding that author(s) of accepted abstracts will register for the full conference. Authors will be required to confirm their acceptance of presentation and register with full payment of the conference fee before the 1st July 2017.

Submissions of more than one abstract from an individual and/or group of authors is welcome. However, in the interests of achieving an inclusiveness of presenters and a broad and balanced program, it is necessary that for each accepted abstract one author / presenter is registered.
