The call is now open to submit abstacts for online poster and oral presentations. Closing date for abstract submissions is 25th April 2021.
Please read the abstract submission guidelines to ensure you include all the relevant headings before you submit your abstract using the form below.
Abstract Submission Guidelines: Oral Presentation
A maximum of ten minutes are scheduled for each online oral presentation.
Accepted Oral Presenters will be asked to pre-record their presentation (maximum duration 10 minutes) and to provide the recording in MP4 format. All accepted presenters must register via the online conference registration system and upload a headshot and brief biography.
Please note if there is more than one presenter the maximum time allowed is still ten minutes. Support and guidelines on recording and optimising your presentation will be provided to ensure recordings are of a professional standard. All presenters must have played back their recording to check that the sound and visual quality is of a good presentation standard before uploading.
Individual abstracts for oral presentations should be 300 words long and need to be uploaded online (submission form). You must use the listed abstract headings within your oral presentation abstract.
All oral presenters must be available on 24th June, following the streamed parallel presentations, for a themed Q & A meeting. The conference organisers will host seven parallel themed meetings and coordinate the chat/discussion, which will take place prior to lunch. Delegates will submit their questions to the meeting chair who will then address the questions to the relevant presenters. All presenters are asked to include a contact email address on their presentation so that questions can also be forwarded directly to them by delegates and responded to outside the streamed and live sessions.
Abstract Submission Guidelines: Poster Presentation
Three minutes are scheduled for each online poster presentation.
Successful poster presenters will be asked to submit a pre-recorded presentation (maximum duration 3 minutes) and a PDF of their poster to the Conference Platform via YouTube or Vimeo URL link. All accepted presenters must register via the online conference registration system and upload a headshot and brief biography.
Due to the restricted time allowance it is recommended that only one person per poster presents, but the poster may have more than one author. Support and guidelines on recording and optimising your presentation will be provided to ensure recordings are of a professional standard. All presenters must ensure they have played back their recording to check that the sound and visual quality is of good standard before uploading.
No Q & A session is scheduled for the poster presentations but all presenters must provide an email contact for delegate questions during and after the conference streaming. You are encouraged to join the networking activities which will take place during coffee and lunch breaks so that informal discussions on your poster presentation can take place.

Abstract Submission Form
There is a prize for the best presentation sponsored by the Association for Health Promotion Ireland.
All abstracts will be reviewed by the Organizing Committee and will be judged on the following:
- Link to the conference themes and tracks
- Contribution to scholarship or practice
- Overall quality.
Notification of abstract acceptance is two weeks after abstract submission closing date. Final acceptance is conditional upon registration of presenters.
The Organizing Committee reserve the right to move an oral or poster presentation to a different theme, depending on the slots available. As only a limited number of timeslots for oral presentations are available, presentations more suited to a poster presentation, may be offered this opportunity for inclusion.
Please note that the HPRC principles of funding do not allow us to work with, or for, the tobacco, alcohol or arms industries or pharma. Partnerships or sponsorship will not be considered appropriate where there is a fundamental mismatch of goals and objectives with those of the HPRC. This extends to the funding of activity presented at our annual Health Promotion conference.
If your work has been funded by any of these industries, please do not submit an abstract as it will be rejected.
