We are inviting submissions of abstracts for research talks and research posters to be presented at our 2017 CMRP 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.
The research talks will be held on Saturday 8th July 2017 and Monday 10th July and grouped based on converging topics. 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 on the evenings of Saturday 8th July and Monday 10th July. The research posters will be continually on display throughout the conference also. 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
All presenters must also register for the conference and pay the conference fee.
Deadline for abstract submissions is 28th April 2017, and you will be notified of the outcome of your submission by 31stMay 2017. 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.
