Abstract Submission

The call for abstracts for Australian Pulse Conference 2019 (APC 2019) will open soon.

Abstracts must be submitted online via the APC 2019 website.

We invite you to submit abstracts for the following presentation types. All presentation types are equally valued contributions and different presentation formats may be best suited to different kinds of content. Delegates are encouraged to select the presentation format that best suits the material to be presented.

Poster Presentation

Because they are on show for the entire conference, poster presentations allow you to showcase your work to a wider audience and provide opportunities for discussion with your peers one-on-one or in small groups. Traditionally, poster presenters have used the opportunity to present works in progress, preliminary results, new methods and techniques, or detailed proposals for upcoming research.

Rapid Fire Presentation

(7 minutes in total, based on 5 minutes to present and 2 minutes for discussion / presenter changeover)

Rapid Fire presentations give you the opportunity to present your research in a short, concise, and energetic format. This format allows you to showcase your science in addition to showcasing your presentation and communication skills – an increasingly important ability for the modern ecologist. Speed talks are the best choice for research with one main idea or result.

Oral Presentation

(20 minutes in total, based on 15 minutes to present and 5 minutes for discussion / presenter changeover)

Oral presentations are ideal for presenting research projects that are close to completion, with emerging conclusions. This style of presentation gives the author opportunity to place their work in a broader ecological context, and to discuss hypotheses, study design, and outcomes in detail. Oral presentations may be part of an open forum or a symposium.
