NOFASD Australia is excited to be hosting our inaugural virtual conference on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th May 2022.
“The FASD Forum ’22” conference will feature world renowned speakers and eminent researchers (including Professor Kenneth Lyons Jones as the keynote presenter) as well as those with extensive lived experience of FASD. Topics selected for the conference sessions will address key issues across the lifespan.
A “Three Minute Thesis” session will feature during the conference providing an opportunity for researchers to present a summary of their current (or recent) research to conference attendees, who will include other researchers and health professionals as well as those with lived experience of FASD.
The aim for each presenter is to provide a brief, clear and engaging overview of their research within the strict time limit of just 3 minutes – in language that will be easily understood by the diversity of our conference attendees.
The three-minute presentation will need to be pre-recorded to ensure the timing and quality of all recordings and NOFASD will facilitate the recording using software which works similarly to Zoom.
This session is not open only to those who are currently undertaking research towards a PhD – we welcome interest from those who are currently researching (or have completed research in the last 2 to 3 years) on a FASD related topic.
Awards will be presented for best presentations in the “Three Minute Thesis” session.
To submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) in presenting in this session you will need to:
- Provide an engaging summary of your research (in no more than 350 words) which outlines the topic you are researching, the results and the outcomes, or likely outcomes, and impacts of the research; and
- Email your EOI to firstname.lastname@example.org with a Subject Line: EOI for Three Minute Thesis.
- EOIs should be submitted as soon as possible – and by no later than Friday 25th March.
We look forward to receiving submissions for this session.
We also encourage you to promote this opportunity to those you know who are currently researching FASD and could share their findings with the conference audience.
