You are invited to submit an abstract for an oral presentation, rapid fire e-poster presentation and workshop at the CDPAC 2014 Conference. Abstracts accepted may be presented in one of the forms outlined below. Submit your abstract here!

Oral Presentation
Oral presentations will focus on issues related to research, practice and policy. Each presentation will be 10 minutes in length followed by a 5-minute discussion period. Sessions will be grouped together by theme.

Rapid Fire E-Poster Presentation
In an effort to bring more attention to posters at the conference, CDPAC is introducing Rapid Fire E-Poster Presentations. Rather than the more traditional poster presentation session, presenters will have their “poster” put up on the screen and be given 3 minutes to provide an overview of their work to the conference participants. Following the session, at scheduled times throughout the conference, there will be an opportunity for participants to interact with the poster presenters and allow for Q&A in various rooms with their “poster” on the screen. No printed posters will be required.

Workshops will be interactive and encourage exchange and collaboration, where the participants will walk away with new tools and learnings related to the topic area presented. Workshops will be a half or full day session and will run either on the pre-conference day (Tuesday, April 8, 2014) or concurrently during the various concurrent sessions in the program.
