Practical Experiences in the Workplace and Case Studies
Usually 10 minutes plus limited time for questions. Intended to be short, informal talks illustrating real world problems and how they were solved.

Designed to be interactive with a good degree of audience participation, workshops provide an ideal opportunity to discuss emerging hygiene issues and/or develop participants’ skills. Those willing to initiate and facilitate a workshop are encouraged to submit an outline proposal via the abstracts submission process using the Workshop Submission Form.  Usually 75-90 minutes.

Deadline for submissions for the above abstracts – 12 October 2018

Scientific Posters
Posters are especially suited to reporting small studies, preliminary findings or projects with large data sets that are difficult to display in oral presentations. Posters must be on display for the duration of the conference.

(5 minutes)
Not for the faint hearted; IGNITE gives presenters the opportunity to deliver a 5 minute session on any suitable topic with a slide deck of 20 slides that auto advance every 15 seconds. The results are memorable.

Deadline for Scientific Posters and Ignite submissions – 28 February 2019
