Abstract proposals (symposium)
Proposals are invited related to all aspects of aphasia although abstracts related to the key theme The Spectrum of Rehabilitation are particularly welcome. All types of contributions regarding clinical and research projects, also including study design or preliminary results, are welcome and will be considered for presentation.
Proposals for symposia should include 2 to 6 oral presentations from different presenters on a mutual subject. A symposium will be a 1.5 hours parallel session. Proposals submitted jointly by participants from different Scandinavian countries are especially welcome.
The presenters should submit one abstract summarizing the topic and one abstract for each of the individual presentations.
The summarizing abstract should present the overall background and aim of the symposium. There are no specific demands regarding the structure of the summarizing abstract. Please focus this abstract on the symposium as a whole; describe how the individual presentations contribute to the overall aim of the symposium, but do not repeat details from the individual abstracts. The word limit for the summarizing abstract is 250 words.
The abstracts for the individual presentations should provide the name and affiliation of the presenter, a concise statement of the problem or hypothesis, procedures and analyses conducted, results obtained, and final conclusion(s) drawn. Figures or tables cannot be included. Abstracts should have the following format: Title, Background, Objective, Methods, Results, Discussion, References (optional, no more than five references).The word limit for the individual abstracts is 350 words (excluding title, affiliation, and references).
Symposium proposals will only be considered if both the summarized and all the individual abstracts have been submitted within the deadline. If a symposium proposal should not be accepted, the individual abstracts will be considered for oral/poster presentation.
The abstracts as well as the presentations should be in English. Submissions that do not meet these guidelines may not be reviewed.
