CM2020 International AAC Conference – Call for Papers
You are invited to contribute to the Communication Matters 2020 International AAC Conference (13-15 September, University of Leeds).
Again this year we will be using an online submission programme called Aventri.
We have based our topic areas on the three aspects of evidence-based practice which constituted improved outcomes for all.
These aspects are:
- Best Research Evidence: Papers submitted under this heading are carried out by independent organisations such as education, social or health services and universities. Authors should pay particular attention to describing the methodology and results of the study.
- Clinical and Professional Experience: Papers submitted under this heading may include service development, audit or implementation projects, as well as practice reports. Typically, these papers will be presented by health or education professionals or those working for other organisations for AAC users.
- Personal Stories and Preferences: Papers submitted under this heading would include personal experience stories, single case studies and examples of AAC in the wider community.
Papers can be submitted as either a platform presentation or a poster. We particularly welcome contributions from AAC users and family members. New last year and returning for 2020 are Lightning Talks – these ‘lightning presentations’ will offer delegates the opportunity to present ideas in a short, concise way, with each presentation allocated just 6.25 minutes. If you’ve got a thought, something you’ve designed, or even just a topic you feel passionate about, come along and share it with our delegates in this concise, fast-paced ideas forum!
The deadline for submission is 24 April 2020.
