FINAL PRESENTATION GUIDELINES
Authors indicate their preferred presentation format. Based on scores, the Scientific Committee will make the final determination regarding the presentation format of accepted abstracts.
Poster Presentation UPLOAD YOUR POSTER BY MARCH 11th (Please email email@example.com with any issues)
A virtual display area will be provided for a pdf or ppt slide to be uploaded. See here: POSTER GUIDELINES
Oral Presentation (15 minutes)
The time allocated for each oral presentation is 15 minutes, with 5 minutes reserved for each author in the session for audience discussion and questions.
Workshop (45 minutes)
A workshop is a session involving interactive learning and the building of new skills. Abstracts intended for workshops should include skill based learning objectives and describe how interactive learning will be incorporated.
Multimedia Presentation (45 minutes)
The author provides an overview of the multimedia presentation, and theme to be discussed by the session participants and facilitates the discussion all during a one hour session. The overview and theme for discussion are required in the abstract submission.
Symposium (90 minutes)
A symposium is a topical presentation with 4-5 papers that address a common theme. Each symposia require a minimum attendance of 4 Presenting Authors, who must register and pay in full to be included in the Congress program by the deadline.
Each symposium also requires a Corresponding Author to act as session chair/convener and who is responsible for identifying the presenting authors to the symposium, ensuring the appropriate abstracts are submitted by those authors and that the 4 Presenting Authors register, pay in full and attend the conference.
The Corresponding Author is required to provide an overview abstract for the symposium and submit the individual abstracts for the other contributors. Individual abstracts should be submitted with the title of the symposium listed first, a dash (-), and then the title of the individual paper (For Example: Protecting Children in our Communities – Results from a Japanese Rural Village where ‘Protecting Children in our Communities’ is the title of the Symposium and ‘Results from a Japanese Rural Village’ is the title of the abstract/paper). Is this submitted all by one person with 4 attachments?
1. Typically abstracts should be 500 words or less. Symposia are the exception and have a higher word count of 1000 words or less (details in the format section below). You can return to the Exordo system to edit until you “Submit”. Data or methods for both research and practice must be shared. Key takeaways for the audience must be included.
2. Required elements for RESEARCH geared abstracts:
• List of 3-4 recommendations or takeaway points for the audience
3. Required Elements for PRACTICE based abstracts:
• Program goals
• Program activities/services & program evaluation data (if available)
• Strengths and challenges (include any child or family outcomes/impact data)
• Next steps
4. Abstracts are to be submitted in English only.
5. When submitting your abstract, please select one Corresponding Author who will assume responsibility for receiving and complying with requirements. The Corresponding Author is responsible for ensuring that the presenting author is registered and able to present if accepted.
6. All accepted abstracts require a minimum of one author to complete registration and provide payment in full by the deadline in order to confirm inclusion in the Congress program.
7. Core courses must have all CV, Basic learning objectives, an overview of 2-hour master class, and level of course along with all attachments to be reviewed. Please make sure this is complete or they will not be considered.
8. Symposia must have a minimum of 4 and maximum of 5 presenting Authors registered for the Congress. All symposium submissions MUST be submitted in one single abstract which cannot exceed 1000 words (please do not submit separate abstracts for the 4-5 papers that will all be part of the symposia. We are asking for the one overarching abstract only). All author information must be submitted with this abstract. The abstract should be structured as follows:
(1) Title of the Symposium
(2) Overarching abstract
(3) Abstract presentation 1 (Name presenter)
(4) Abstract presentation 2 (Name presenter)
(5) Abstract presentation 3 (Name presenter)
(6) Abstract presentation 4 etc. (Name presenter)
(7) Main take away points
In order to ensure the highest scientific standards, ISPCAN employs a double blind review of all abstracts. A double blind review utilizes two different reviewers to independently score each abstract without access to the author’s name, country or any other details. Abstracts are scored on four categories:
- Technical merit (Data supported methodology)*
- Readability (ability to clearly explain the logic and process)
- Innovation or advancement in the field of Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention*
- Three key learning objectives and/or practical implications For workshops submissions, please describe interactive learning activities.
Scores are averaged for all four categories, but weighted more heavily in the categories indicated with an star*. Abstracts are selected based on their final score.
