Application for Workshops and Meet the Expert Sessions

 Submission for Workshop and Meet The Expert Sessions proposals is now closed.

We are looking forward to a highly interactive ISPPD, with lots of opportunities for all participants to engage. We hope that you will support this endeavor by submitting your application to conduct a WS and MTE session for ISPPD 2018 in Melbourne.

Workshops (WS). These are a new event in the ISPPD program.  Workshops will be run on Sunday April 15th from ~2-5 pm (before the opening ceremony). Numbers of participants will be restricted to promote a truly interactive experience. Attendees will preregister, and there will be a small additional charge for attending workshops. Workshops will mostly be run at the conference venue, however we may have capacity to hold a small number off-site (such as those needing laboratory space, high-performance computing etc.).

Meet-the-expert sessions (MTE). Will be held during the conference, most likely during extended lunchbreak(s). There would be no additional charge for participants to attend the Meet-the-expert sessions. These would be of similar size to MTEs in previous ISPPD meetings (e.g. 50 participants).

Those that are selected to conduct WS and/or MTE will receive a contribution towards their cost of attending ISPPD; this process will be administered by the conference organiser kenes.

To apply to conduct a WS and/or MTE session, please complete this application form, save document as "Contact name_WS and MTE application", and email with "Submission_WS and MTE application" in the subject line to by 31 July, 2017.

You will receive a confirmation of submission within one week, and notification of outcome within one month. 

For any questions please contact Helen Thomson on with "WS and MTE query" in the subject line.

Best wishes,

Catherine Satzke and Kim Mulholland
