ABSTRACTS and MARKETPLACE OF IDEAS SESSION PROPOSALS CLOSED.
- 12 April 2019: Abstracts closed
- Early to mid-May: Successful authors are advised (delayed due to extended submission deadline)
Individual Oral Presentation
Each Individual Oral Presentation is up to 20 minutes including Q&A and youmay use slides and some other audio visual equipment to accompany your presentation. Upon acceptance, scheduling of your presentation is done by the Program Committee in an effort to plan cohesive sessions on common topics or themes.
Posters will be on display for at least one full-day of the conference. Presenters will engage with participants during refreshment breaks to transfer knowledge in an interactive format.
Marketplace of Ideas presentation
These practice focused sessions will be between 45 and 90 minutes duration and aim to:
- Provide practical examples of law enforcement and health/welfare collaborations at local level, across a wide range of complex social and public health issues – for operational police in particular, whose need is pressing and for practical, more than theoretical, information;
- Provide a forum for identifying, collecting and showcasing innovative partnership approaches to such problems, as a basis for exploring the principles behind success and sustainability of such collaborations; and
- Stimulate discussion and interest in the development of new collaborative programs.
Ideally the Marketplace of Ideas activity will be a joint presentation by a law enforcement and a public health practitioner involved in the project. Sessions will be small groups (approximately 30 people maximum). Preference will be given to timely topics that will favor a highly interactiveformat and these sessions are not suitable for extended oral presentations.
Examples of Marketplace of Ideas sessions include:
- Presentations/demonstrations of training packages, curriculums, manuals, videos etc. followed by discussion
- A ‘Knowledge exchange’ through afacilitated discussion after describing the achievements and/or failures of a particular program initiative
- A ‘mini Master class’ via a highly interactive workshops to communicate experiential knowledge and know-how
- ‘Up close and personal’ with an expert on a technical question: informative, inspiring, energetic with a maximum of audience participation.
