Submission Guidelines

Abstracts are submitted online at the bottom of this page and should be no longer than 150 words. All presentations have equal status, so there is no difference in the standing of oral or poster presentations.

We want to ensure that as many delegates can present as possible, therefore please do not submit more than one abstract per presenter.

The title of your presentation should ideally include the key message of the research. This will help us identify the best session for your presentation. Please do not use full caps for your title or abstract.

View the full formatting instructions below.



The abstract submission deadline is 18:00 (AEST), Thursday 1st June 2023.

To guarantee your place in the programme, every abstract submitter must complete the meeting registration by 18:00 (AEST), Friday 23rd June 2023.

Your abstract will be withdrawn if you do not register by this date. You will be informed about the outcome of your abstract proposal before this deadline. If you have any questions about abstract submission, please contact us.
