The call for abstracts will be open mid February 2018.

We are inviting submissions of abstracts for research talks and research posters to be presented at the conference. This is a great opportunity for networking and sharing the most up-to-date research with your fellow mindfulness researchers.

We encourage submissions detailing original completed or ‘in progress’ research studies (such as preliminary results or protocols) on mindfulness.  This includes research using qualitative and quantitative methods as well as theoretical contributions.

Days and times of the research talks will be confirmed shortly and will be grouped based on converging topics. Typically, research talks will be 15 minutes long plus an additional 5 minutes for questions and discussion. Please note there are limited places for research talks

There will be dedicated poster sessions where the authors will be present to discuss their research.  One of the authors for each poster needs to be available for at least one of the research poster sessions to discuss the poster presentation and answer questions.

Guidance for the abstract submissions:

Abstracts should be no longer than 200 words and clearly state the title of the study, authors and details of the research in the following sections (see the abstract submission form):

·        Introduction / Background

·         Aims / Hypotheses

·         Methods

·         Results

·         Discussion

·         Conclusions

All presenters must also register for the conference and pay the conference fee.

Deadline for abstract submissions is to be confirmed, and you will be notified of the outcome of your submission (date to be confirmed). The research quality of all abstracts will be evaluated by peer reviewers. Research talks and poster presentations will be selected on the basis of their scientific merit.
