CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS AND ABSTRACTS
On behalf of the ASMIRT 2023 Conference Organising Committee, we invite all medical radiation science professionals and students to submit abstracts for oral presentations, poster exhibits and specialised workshops for next year's conference, which will be held in Sydney, NSW from 27 - 30 April 2023.
We are looking for you, our current and future champions, to submit workshop proposals and abstracts. The conference will comprise an engaging program including a mixture of invited speakers, proffered papers, vibrant physical posters, specialised workshops and so much more.
The Conference theme presents an incredible opportunity to showcase how we have embraced change historically, and how we continue to do so for the ongoing improvement of our professions and the care that our patients receive.
For medical radiation science students, an important element of our 2023 Conference is the integration of the ASMIRT Student Conference with the National Conference. This will see presentations from students alongside practitioners, making for dynamic and varied sessions, while providing a valuable experience of presenting to the larger MRS industry. Our future industry leaders, will be able to attend workshops, presentations and social events, networking with those in their respective fields of interest. We encourage you to share your learnings, research and insights, with a tutor or lecturer from your University assisting you along the way from abstract submission through to presentation. Presenting at ASMIRT 2023 is an excellent way to demonstrate your capabilities to a prospective employer, to develop your skills in this area and to make contacts for future research projects and more. Talk to your university or contact us to find out more about how you can submit an abstract and have the opportunity to present at ASMIRT 2023.
The organising committee looks forward to receiving your workshop proposal and abstract submission.
