Submitting an Abstract

Call for Abstracts (for poster or oral submissions)

Scope

This year, we look forward to extending ASBDD’s work of bringing together people and organisations from all over Australia and New Zealand who share the common goal of improving the lives of people living with and at risk of mood disorders.
We invite you to submit an abstract and share your exciting and innovative research on mood disorders with fellow researchers, students, those with lived experience, caregivers, and clinicians.

ASBDD encourages the involvement of early career researchers at the Conference, providing them with a friendly and supportive environment in which to present their research and to develop their research communication skills.

Abstract Format

The abstract must be submitted as a Word document or PDF as follows:

PAPER TITLE – BOLD CALIBRI 11PT IN CAPITALS
Authors (place presenting author’s name first)

If the presenter is a student, EMCR, clinician, or have lived experience please also indicate this below the affiliations

For example:

Please use single spacing and 11-point Calibri font. It is important that the length limit is not exceeded.
