Abstract submission and Covid -19

In the light of the continued uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 situation we are planning to host a hybrid (physical and digital) conference in Stockholm 2021. We are closely following the development. The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our topmost priority.

All authors of accepted abstracts will be contacted regarding physical or digital participation.

Important

  • The Presenting Author must submit the abstract and is required to be the corresponding author for that abstract
  • Abstracts must be submitted in English
  • You do not need to register for the Conference prior to submitting an abstract however following acceptance into the program you must register by June 14 2021.

Presentation Types

An abstract can be submitted for presentation at the Conference as one of the following categories:

  • Oral presentation (Scientific OR Practitioner/policy)
  • Poster presentation (Scientific OR Practitioner/policy)
  • Workshop (Practitioner/policy)

Note:
This year symposium is not one of the presentation categories to choose from, since WABF 2021 will be a hybrid event and the program will consist of both digital and physical delegates and presenters. However, presenters may be put in a session together with others followed by a joint discussion.

At the review stage, the Program Committee may change the presentation type submitted by the author to ensure the continuity of the conference program i.e. oral presentation may be changed to poster presentation OR poster presentation to oral presentation. The presenting author will be informed of any change to their submitted presentation type at the acceptance notification stage. The decision of the program committee is final.

Instructions on the timings and duration of oral presentations and the format and size of posters will be given in the acceptance notification which will be issued in mid May 2020.
