Call for Papers: Risky Business 2 – The International Dementia Conference
June 26-27, 2014 Sydney, Australia
We are inviting posters and presentations for Risky Business 2 - this time it's personal!
Our International Dementia Conference, Risky Business 2 – this time its personal, will consider the opportunities and challenges confronting care for people with dementia.
How do we support people with dementia to live their lives well and are we really delivering care that is personal to the person with dementia and their carer?
Inappropriate use of anti-psychotic medication, delivering the right hospital care, alongside the changes needed in community, day and residential services will all be considered during this conference. The conference will take place over two days on the 26th and 27th June 2014. We are seeking submissions for oral and ePoster presentations on a range of critical themes. New this year is the introduction of video submissions. As video recorders on cameras, phones and tablets are now readily available we believe this can enhance the submission process and provide you with an oportunity to share your passion in a way that a written abstract does not allow.
We are inviting submissions that will challenge, inform and contribute to shaping the future of dementia care. This global event will bring together a privileged gathering of people with the shared goal of improving the lives of people with dementia and offering hope and choice in their future.
We are seeking abstracts from people:
working in scientific, clinical and psychosocial research
working on (or have completed) innovative projects in the delivery of services.
We strongly welcome and will seek to support contributions from people with dementia and their carers.
The papers selected by the panel for the conference will be drawn from practice, research, policy and analysis to provide an accessible and informative platform for debate and discussion around risk in the lives of those with dementia and their carers. Papers will address the issues which confront people with dementia in community, residential care and hospital settings.
We welcome your contribution to this conference, proposed topics and themes are listed on the next page for guidance, and should you require further information on submitting an abstract or ePoster, please email email@example.com
Your submission will include:
a brief introduction to the presenter/s (eg a short biography)
a written abstract (maximum 200 words)
a 2 minute video piece - this is an opportunity for presenters to share their passion about their topic, why it is important and how it can add value to the conference.
The submission materials will be used to inform the panel’s review of submitted papers and more importantly be uploaded to the conference website to enhance the delegate experience of choice in the concurrent sessions they attend.
To enhance the delegate experience we are pleased to introduce ePosters. All selected submissions will then be requested in electronic format, such as PDF or a single PowerPoint slide (with no animations). An area of the exhibition space will be dedicated to this. The ePoster abstract will feature in the conference programme along with contact details. There will be no poster presenter timeslot on the programme, as ePosters will be a continually projected visual presentation.
The deadline for submissions is Midnight (Australian Eastern Standard Time), 27 September 2013.
No late submissions will be accepted for oral presentations or ePosters.
We will notify all applicants of acceptance during November 2013.
