|Oral Symposium Submissions||30th November, 2012|
Lead Individuals, Chairpersons and Groups are invited to submit their symposium suggestion for the conference programme, alternatively you can contact Russell Pendleton directly outlining your proposal.
The symposia will consist of 90 minute sections, either split into four talks of 20 minutes and 10 minutes discussion at the end of all talks, or three talks of 25 minutes and 5 minutes discussion at the end of each talk. Timings must be adhered to strictly at the conference to allow people later in the day to speak on schedule.
Slides should be prepared in Powerpoint - there is no limit on slide numbers however a good guide is one minute per slide. Please bear this in mind. Where speakers provide approval, sessions will also be audiotaped for post-conference Online Learning purposes.
The programming committee is tasked with selecting sessions for the conference based on excellence of presentations submitted.
Every speaker should attempt to relate issues raised in their talks to BOTH Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder wherever possible. Every attempt will be made to include topics that address both conditions in each programme block of 90-120 mins. The conference will be structured into themes:
Day 1 – Diagnostic and Clinical Aspects of Psychosis
Day 2 – Mechanisms, Aetiology and Biomarkers of Psychosis (including Genetics & Environmental factors)
Day 3 – Innovative Pharmaceutical and Psycho-social Treatment Options
The skeleton of the programme will be made up of 6-8 invited top level guest speakers delivering plenary lectures, the rest of the programme is open for proposals and will include:
