The conference scientific committee invites submissions of abstracts (in English language only) for presentations related to the scope and purpose of the conference. Please check the list of preferred themes.
Submissions should follow one of the following formats:
- Type 1 Research abstracts: These presentations will provide the results, completed or in advanced in-progress form, of original research projects. The material should not have been published elsewhere, except in preliminary form, and it should be ready for publication as a journal article. Papers related to PhD projects, either completed or in progress, are especially encouraged. The selected abstracts will be discussed within workshops that are moderated by keyexperts in the specific theme.
- Type 2 Policy Debate abstracts: These posters describe significant developments in policy (whether governmental, organisational or any other) that affects primary care associated with the themes of the conference. In particularly national, regional or local policymakers are invited to provide new policy developments. Posters need clear statements for debate. All selected posters will be presented/defended in specific parallel sessions with a 15 minutes time-slot for each poster. These sessions are located in innovative settings, such as “debate corners”, animated by an expert facilitator.
- Type 3 Practice Video presentations: Projects and developments focusing on practice-oriented questions and reporting on recent experiences and innovations in primary care. These presentations should present case descriptions of primary care on the national, regional or local level. The selected videos will be displayed prominently with non-stop shows during the conference (length should be around 3 minutes and not exceeding the maximum of 5 minutes) and will be presented/defended in specific parallel sessions with a maximum of 15 minutes time-slot for each video.
The material should be structured according to the format below, approximately 250 words in length and accompanied by the author’s preference for the type of presentation: oral paper, poster or video presentation.
