Opportunities for Presenting
The Organising Committee seeks to support innovation in the delivery of ideas. We encourage you to think of the best way of engaging with your audience, sharing your experience and generating exploration and learning.
Abstract authors may be asked to re frame or further develop their exploration; or explore a collaborative presentation with an author who has submitted a similarly themed abstract.
Please select If you would like to present an Oral or Poster Presentation before submitting your abstract via the Abstract Portal. Presentations which are not accepted for an oral presentation may be offered a poster presentation.
- Oral Presentations will vary in time according to the topic of presentation.
- Presentations which are not accepted for an oral presentation may be offered a poster presentation.
