How to prepare a Scienticic Abstract

Theme .

The theme for the conference is “Vision”, this single theme offering a wide range of possibilities; from innovation and imagination to foresight and ideas. The program promises to be a vibrant one, with a new style of oral presentation to be offered and a return to physical poster presentations including a new, more striking design concept.

Opportunities abound for those interested in showcasing their research, work and ideas with session themes that cover the breadth of Medical Radiation Science topics and those relevant to health professionals. This includes topics specific to Radiation Therapy and Medical Imaging and to the profession as a whole, with topics such as Management, Education, Workplace Culture, Indigenous Health and Patient Care to name a few.

Pecha Kucha Short Presentations .

Along with the traditional oral presentation format, the 2020 conference will also offer abstracts for a new format of oral presentation known as Pecha Kucha, pronounced: Pecka Koo-cha. This format limits presenters to 20 slides that change every 20 seconds (20 in 20, see what we did there?). The Pecha Kucha presentations will run for a total duration of 6 minutes and 40 seconds, ideal for those wishing to present smaller volumes of information in a condensed, challenging and engaging manner.

More information about Pecha Kucha is also here.

Posters .

Another new concept for the 2020 conference is a familiar one; the return to physical posters. The conference will offer poster presenters the opportunity to physically display their posters with a new design concept, allowing delegates to more easily identify the content and outcomes of the work and thus more engagement and efficient learning outcomes.

If you wish to present a poster, please be sure to submit an abstract through the abstract submission portal.

The Vision .

The vision for the Conference is to provide high-quality content and delivery of presentations that introduce new and emerging technologies, techniques and clinical practices, in addition to patient centred care that inspires, challenges and leads our profession in the rapidly evolving technological age.

We, the organising committee, look forward to receiving your abstract submission and building for you a wonderful scientific program for the 2020 Conference in the world’s most liveable city.
