Abstract Selection

  • The deadline for abstract submissions is now closed. We thank all participants who have submitted an abstract. Participants will be contacted during February and March 2021 regarding the status of their submission.
  • The maximum number of abstracts accepted will be 100 and all delegates are expected to present at the conference. Registration is only available to delegates who have had a paper accepted to the conference.
  • The organisers understand there is uncertainty around global travel restrictions and it may transpire that delegates offered a place are not able to attend due to circumstances beyond their control. If this occurs facilities will be made for delegates to attend the conference virtually.
  • Some authors not offered a place at the conference will be offered a place on a standby list. Those on the standby list may be invited to attend and present in the event that others offered a place do not submit a paper are unable to attend.
  • Should you have any enquiries regarding any of the above, please do not hesitate to contact the Sydney 2022 Conference Secretariat.
