Submitting your abstract to EUSPR 2017

The call for abstracts for EUSPR 2017 is now open

Abstract themes and information

You have the opportunity to present during a parallel session, a poster session, or as part of an Early Career session.

This year’s EUSPR Conference priority is Quality in Prevention, although we welcome submissions on all prevention science related topics, and encourage presentations that focus on improving the use of research evidence in policy and practice.

We have simplified the abstract submission process this year and so please submit papers for the following topics:

  • Promoting Quality in Prevention
  • Open theme – we welcome submissions on any prevention related topic. These include, but are not limited to:
    • Crime, violence, and disruptive behaviours
    • Determinants of health and social behaviours
    • Eating Behaviour
    • Evidence into policy/practice
    • Mental health
    • Sexual health
    • Substance Use
  • Post graduate and Early Career theme – this is reserved for current undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as practitioners, policy-makers and researchers who entered the prevention field less than 8 years ago; In these sessions we also welcome the presentation of work in progress (including recently commenced work), discussion of methodology, difficulties, research questions, etc.

You are also invited to submit Posters on these topics for our structured poster session.

Please note that because of venue configuration we can only accept 50 posters this year, presented in two special sessions. Posters should be A0 size, and in portrait orientation. Hanging materials will be available on-site.

Parallel Session talks should  be 15 minutes long and focus on high quality prevention research (including methodology, epidemiology, aetiology, intervention outcomes, implementation, evidence based programmes and policy etc). Talks will be followed by a short Q&A session

The deadline for all abstracts submissions is Monday 17th July 2017 at 1700 CET (extension to previous date) All abstracts will be reviewed by EUSPR Conference Committee members and the results announced to authors soon afterwards.
