The London & Region FASD Conference planning committee is pleased to invite abstract submissions for featured oral and poster presentations for this year’s virtual conference. Abstract topics may be basic or clinical research. The conference is inclusive of individuals from various personal and professional backgrounds and we request that presentations are accessible and relevant across disciplines. Submitted presentations will be assessed for clarity, novelty, and overall significance to the FASD community.
Abstracts selected for a poster presentation will be asked to prepare a high-resolution digital ePoster and a brief 5-minute video presentation explaining their research. Select abstracts will be invited to deliver a 10-minute slide-based oral presentation. Trainees and junior faculty will be given priority for presentations.
Please organize your abstract using the following headings: Title, Background & Research Objectives, Methods, Results, and Conclusions. Abstracts should be double-spaced and use an 11-point font minimum. The maximum word count is 250. Please also include your name, affiliation, and contributing authors. We will consider submissions for studies currently in progress, although preference will be given to completed projects.
Prizes: The best poster and best oral presentation delivered by a trainee will each be awarded $250 and a certificate of recognition.
