Call for papers

The online abstract submission is now live, and the 2019 Conference Planning Committee (CPC) invite you to put forward oral, poster and workshops presentations.

Brisbane will welcome you in 2019 for a conference that will be a great opportunity for delegates to experience Engaging, Collaborating and Empowering presentations.

The 2019 Conference is a joint event for Speech Pathology Australia (SPA) and the New Zealand Speech-language Therapists’ Association (NZSTA).

The CPC, comprised of representatives from both SPA and NZSTA, wants you to engage with the evidence and collaborate with peers, to continue to empower your practice with a confidence that is informed by the evidence base. Delegates are invited to participate and gain opportunities through:

  • Formation of connections and relationships between members of the profession (on both sides of "the ditch"),
  • Engagement and collaboration between researchers and practitioners through knowledge,
  • Increasing confidence in your professional role, responsibilities and relationships in delivery of client care.

Submissions accepted by the CPC will be grouped under nominated themes for presentation at the 2019 National Conference.

There is a two-step process at the start for the online submission where you select the option of an oral or poster presentation, or a workshop presentation. We request that you read the following instruction that applies to you, prior to submitting your abstract.

The CPC warmly invites you to Brisbane in 2019 to connect with others, discover new evidence and build your enthusiasm to look to future opportunities in your professional work. We look forward to seeing you there!
