INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMISSION
SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT HERE!

ECDV brings together researchers, academics, students, professionals, practitioners and policy-makers, so we expect a variety of different abstracts to be submitted. This guidance provides some instructions and tips on how to structure your presentation in order to improve the chances of your proposed contribution to the conference being successful. One person cannot submit more than 2 abstracts.

Oral Presentation and Posters

An oral paper presentation and a poster may be authored by an individual or by a group. If you are unable to find a suitable theme to submit your proposal under the themes then please just use the ‘Open’ category. The submitted abstract should be 300 words or less. Instructions for the structure of an abstract is detailed below.

In cases where there is more than one author, one person should log in and define themselves as Author 1, and then add all the other authors as Author 2, Author 3, … Author n (n = total number of participants in the paper). Author 1 will be responsible for completing the online form including selecting the main theme and sub-theme. Author 1 will be the person with whom we communicate, and it is their responsibility to liaise with the other named authors.

Symposium, Round table

The symposium or round table consist of three to four papers on a common topic, which are presented within the same session and are in line with the conference's themes and sub-themes. One person is responsible for submitting the following (all in one document):

  • An abstract (maximum 300 words) that describes the theme of the symposium or round table;
  • The shorter abstracts for each of the papers included in the proposed symposium or round table (maximum 150 words for each contribution with name of the author, title of the presentation and content).

The length should not exceed 800 words in total.

Instructions for the structure of abstracts:

ECDV conference encourages presentations by practitioners and policy makers, as well as researchers. The submission system does not divide between presentations relating to practice, policy or research, so here are some tips about how you can structure your abstract depending on the focus:

For presentations about practice or policy state:

  • Background and purpose of the practice or policy initiative;
  • A summary of the main points of the practice or policy initiative and any innovative elements;
  • Conclusions from and implications of the learning for practice, policy or further research.

If you are presenting results of research:

  • Background and purpose of the study: description of the problem, research question(s) and/or hypotheses;
  • Methods: study design, sampling, data collection and approaches to analysis;
  • Findings: a select few because of the time limit;
  • Conclusions and implications: description of the main outcome(s) of the study and implications for practice, policy or further research.
