Abstract Reviewing

All abstracts will be reviewed by the Organizing Committee and will be judged on the following:

  • Link to the conference themes 
  • Description of the learning and challenges experienced
  • Interest to the target audience
  • Contribution to scholarship or practice
  • Method
  • Overall quality.

Notification of abstract acceptance is two weeks after abstract submission closing date. Final acceptance is conditional upon registration of presenters.

The Organising 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, gambling 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.
