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.

There are limited number of opportunities to convene a special session of linked papers. Please submit these abstracts using the normal submission process, either i) as separate abstracts indicating on each that they are linked; or ii) a single abstract which describes the whole session. Abstracts within special sessions will still be reviewed in accordance with the usual conference procedures.

This year’s EUSPR Conference priority is Prevention Technologies – improving the use of evidence in prevention practice

although we always welcome submissions on all prevention science related topics. We welcome abstracts that present theoretical and methodological developments.

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

  • Prevention Technologies – improving the use of evidence in prevention practice;
  • 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;
    • Mental health and wellbeing;
    • Sexual health;
    • Substance Use;
    • Prevention science methods and theory;
    • Evidence into practice and policy.
  • 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. Our Early Career Forum will be developing special sessions to ensure that you have a rewarding presenting experience and have the opportunity to interact with senior scientists.

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

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

Abstract submission instructions

Please read the instructions here to submit your abstract to EUSPR 2018. 


The deadline for all abstracts submissions is Monday 4th June 2018 – Midnight. * In case of exceptional circumstances (e.g. illness, holiday, technical failure) we accept a small number of abstracts after the deadline, but we cannot guarantee this. All abstracts will be reviewed by EUSPR Conference Committee members and the results announced to authors in approximately 4-6 weeks. This will allow plenty of time to take advantage of Early Bird conference rates, and where attendance is conditional upon acceptance of the abstract, to make necessary travel arrangements.
