Abstract submissions are CLOSED.
Notices of acceptance for Poster abstract submissions have been emailed. If you did not receive one, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about your acceptance status.
Abstracts must be submitted by the presenting author. Therefore, it should be the presenting author who creates the IEPA Conference Account from which the submissions will be made and the account should contain the presenting author’s contact information. Do not submit an abstract for a different presenting author from your account. The presenting author (account holder) is the main contact for all communication about the submissions made from his or her account.
Abstracts must be submitted online. Abstracts submitted by e-mail, fax, post, etc. will NOT be considered.
Abstracts must be submitted in English.
Abstracts are limited to 250 words (excluding abstract title, author names and affiliations).
You will be required to select one of the following primary or secondary themes for your abstract. The themes help us group the submissions for review and presentation.
Diagnosis and Phenomenology
Service System Development and Reform
First Episode Psychosis
Ultra High Risk / Prodromal Research
Each symposium submission is comprised of a symposium summary describing the symposium, plus abstracts for each of the required four (4) talks. If you are chair (organizer) of a symposium, you must submit the details of the symposium from your account. This includes submitting the abstracts for each of the four talks (including authors, affiliations, and email contact for the talk’s presenting author). See our Oral Guidelines for more information about presenting your talk.
A limited number of oral presentations will be scheduled. If you submit an oral presentation and it is not accepted, you will automatically be considered for a poster presentation. See our Oral Guidelines for more information about presenting your talk.
Poster size is limited to 8′ (242 cm) wide x 4′ (121 cm) tall. See our Poster Guidelines for more information about preparing your poster
If your abstract is accepted for presentation, you are required to register for the conference. You register from your account. Any co-authors that will be presenting must also register. To register, they create their own accounts. All authors must register to present their paper or poster at the conference. In the case of a symposium, this includes the symposium chair and the presenting author for each talk.
