Professional practice or scientific research based presentations.

Practical Experiences in the Workplace/Case Studies
(Usually 10 minutes plus limited time for questions)
Intended to be short, informal talks illustrating real world problems and how they were solved.

(Usually 75-90 minutes)
Designed to be interactive with a good degree of audience participation, workshops provide an ideal opportunity to discuss emerging hygiene issues and/or develop participants’ skills. Those willing to initiate and facilitate a workshop are encouraged to submit an outline proposal via the abstracts submission process using the Workshop Submission Form.

Deadline for submissions for the above – EXTENDED To 20 October 2017

Scientific Posters
Posters are especially suited to reporting small studies, preliminary findings or projects with large data sets that are difficult to display in oral presentations. Posters must be on display for the duration of the conference.

(5 minutes)
Not for the faint hearted; IGNITE gives presenters the opportunity to deliver a 5 minute session on any suitable topic with a slide deck of 20 slides that auto advance every 15 seconds. The results are memorable.

Deadline for Scientific Posters and Ignite submissions – 28 February 2018
