CM2022 International AAC Conference – Call for Papers

You are invited to contribute to the Communication Matters 2022 International AAC Conference (11-13 September, University of Leeds).

We have based our topic areas on the three aspects of evidence-based practice which constitute 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. We particularly welcome contributions from AAC users and family members.

Again, this year we will be using an online submission programme called Aventri. You will be asked to login and submit a simple form with a title and a short summary about your talk (maximum 300 words).

Papers can be submitted as either a Platform presentation (45-minutes), Workshop presentation (45-minutes), a Poster, or a Lightning Talk (6.25 minutes).

The deadline for submissions is 22 April 2022. However, we would encourage you to submit your abstract as soon as possible to help with our planning.

For further information and to submit an abstract, please visit our website.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss the opportunity, please email admin@communicationmatters.org.uk.
