PROCEDURE

When making your submission, be mindful to the deadlines and timescales involved in the Call for Papers.

Before making your submission, read the descriptions, and related examples, below of the different submission formats. Click open for the submission you wish to make and ensure you complete all relevant sections.

Each submission can be submitted only once, more specifically, the same content cannot be submitted in different formats or across different streams.

For all types of submission: in the abstract please identify which stream you consider the submission to be most suitable for, using the relevant drop-down menu. Please note that the Scientific Committee reserves the right to schedule successful submissions in streams other than that proposed in the submission, and at any point throughout the three-day Congress. Submitting your material through the portal will be taken as acceptance of these conditions.

The Congress server will automatically acknowledge submissions made through the portal. If you do not receive a copy and acknowledgement of your submission, can you first check your email junk/spam folder to make sure it has not been diverted to this, prior to contacting the Scientific Secretariat.

1. Invited Addresses
Only by formal invitation from the Scientific Committee

2. Invited Pre-Congress Full Day
Only by formal invitation from the Scientific Committee

3. Clinical and Research Symposia

Symposia include multiple presentations on a single or related clinical or research area.

Generally, symposia will consist of a Convenor, Chair, Individual Presenters, and a Discussant (optional).

They will be scheduled for either 60 or 90 minute sessions.

There should be a maximum of 5 speakers per symposium (including discussant).

To ensure we receive adequate information, all submitted Symposia should have a symposium abstract of approximately 500 words. This should be a general description of the overall symposium, including the names of at least 3 presenters. If you wish you can provide a short summary of each speaker’s topic  within this word-limit.

However, at this stage, we do not require the individual abstracts for each speaker. These will be requested if the submission is accepted.

The name and contact details of the symposium convenor/organiser must be provided. This individual accepts responsibility for ensuring that all speakers provide individual abstracts, when requested. They must also ensure that speakers have to register to attend the congress and communicate as required, practical information to the scientific committee as well as individual speakers in the symposia.

Please note that for space and production reasons only the author  presenting in symposium will appear in the Congress programme. However, full authorship will appear in the electronic abstract book; up to a maximum of 7 authors.

It is expected that all speakers contributing to the symposium will deliver their presentation in person. However, there will be limited space in the programme to submit a fully recorded symposium that will be transmitted to delegates in full at a scheduled time in the programme. It will be the responsibility of the convenor to coordinate the individual presentations into a single recording that will be submitted to the scientific secretariate as an Mp4 file by a deadline that will be agreed if the submission is accepted. All speakers will still have to register to attend the congress.


4. Skills Classes

These are short skills-based sessions that address a targeted problem and/or a specific technique.

Skills classes are designed to be delivered to large groups in a short length of time and should focus on the acquisition of a key clinical or research skill.

Skills classes will run during the main Congress programme.

The abstract should be a maximum of 500 words. It should include background for the topic covered and the overall objectives of the skills class.

Contributors should provide a structured abstract to include the following:
  1. Title
  2. Scientific background
  3. Key learning objectives
  4. 2-3 key references
  5. Brief description of skills class leader(s)
  6. Implications for everyday clinical practice of CBT
Skills class leader(s): maximum 3.

Skills classes will run for 90 minutes with no coffee break. Delegates can choose to attend the skills classes  at no extra cost. No fee is payable to the skills class presenters. The skills classes will be delivered live and in person and the skills class leader (s) are required to register for the congress.


5. Panel Debate

This format involves experts providing a brief statement of their position on a specific clinical or theoretical issue or topic, and then debate differences in opinion, controversial issues etc. with other experts.

This requires an active Chair who may act as an optional discussant, introduces the topic, organises position statements, handles the debate amongst the experts, fields questions from the audience and is responsible for time management of the session.

Panel debates can contain a maximum of 3-4 people (maximum 4) to include an optional discussant (if providing a summary). Please note that each presenter should present a verbal statement (no use of PowerPoint/visual aids etc.) of position for approximately 10-15 minutes, which typically will not require presentation of data.

Panel debates will be scheduled for either 60 or 90 minute sessions.

Panel debates can contain a maximum of 3-4 people (maximum 4) to include an optional discussant (if providing a summary).

Panel debates will be scheduled for either 60 or 90 minute sessions.

The abstract should be a maximum of  500 words.

The panel debates will be delivered live and in person and all panel members  are required to register for the congress.


 

6. Clinical Roundtable

This format involves a clinical case discussion by experts illustrating contrasting viewpoints and analysis of the clinical problem under discussion. Presenters should present an anonymised case, focusing on specific topics. One person is required to present the case and up to 3 people can comment on the case.

Clinical roundtables will be scheduled for either 60 or 90 minute sessions.

For example: A clinical case shall be presented for approximately 15 minutes and each expert shall provide their opinions between 5-10 minutes. The remaining time will be for debate and taking questions from the audience.

The structure is flexible and alternative proposals will be considered, including timings.  However, please take note of time constraints, which should be strictly managed.

A clinical roundtable requires a Chair, who may act as an optional discussant, to introduce the topic, handle comments from the other participants and field questions from the audience.

The abstract should be 500 words.

The clinical roundtables  will be delivered live and in person and all panel members  are required to register for the congress.


 

7. In-Congress Half Day Workshops

In-congress workshops, falling within one of the identified Congress themes, will run during the main Congress programme.

In-Congress Half Day Workshops will run for 3 hours to include a 20-30 minute coffee break.

The abstract should be a maximum of 500 words. It should include background for the topic covered and the overall objectives of the workshop.

Contributors should provide a structured abstract to include the following:
  1. Title
  2. Scientific background
  3. Key learning objectives
  4. Training modalities
  5. 2-3 key references

Please note that for space and production reasons only authors  presenting the open paper will appear in the Congress programme. However, full authorship will appear in the electronic abstract book; up to a maximum of 7 authors.

Additionally, please note that an open paper presenter will be limited to only presenting one open paper in the program (they can of course present other material in an accepted symposium as well as other formats, e.g. Posters.


9. Posters

These are visual presentations. Both clinical and research posters are welcome. We will also consider posters reporting on studies currently in progress.

Poster sessions are scheduled throughout the Congress, according to themes, and there are opportunities for presenters to discuss their poster with delegates, with sessions including either a coffee or lunch break. Posters require an attractive visual presentation of the study, issue or case(s) and should be designed so that they can be read from a distance of approximately 2 metres. Please submit your poster with a structured abstract of no more than 500 words.
