Early Career Research Event Abstract Submission

Submissions are invited for the IASP Gold Coast ECR PechaKucha and ECR Plenary events.

Candidates can apply to take part in one or both ECR events via this submission form. Candidates can apply using oral presentation abstracts already submitted to the main IASP World Congress programme.

Eligibility: ECRs eligible to submit to the PechaKucha and ECR Plenary can be up to five years post PhD award (five years from the date on your PhD diploma).

Selection: All abstracts submitted for the ECR Plenary will be reviewed by the IASP World Congress scientific committee. The PechaKucha will be reviewed by the IASP World Congress scientific committee and will include ECR representation. For the PechaKucha event, six abstracts will be selected. For the ECR Plenary, three abstracts will be selected.

Further information:

The PechaKucha event is being held on Thursday 23rd September 2021 at 7:45pm at Miss Moneypenney’s Broadbeach.

PechaKucha is Japanese for “chit chat” it is a form of story telling that is similar to the 3-minute-thesis but allows participants to present their work over 6-minutes across 20 slides (20-seconds) per slide. It challenges researchers to present their work in a new and engaging way and is a wonderful opportunity to network with other ECRs and senior researchers in the field. Candidates who are selected for the PechaKucha event will be asked to submit their slides 2-weeks in advance of the World Congress.

The event has been organized to be a fun and entertaining evening and will be hosted by the Australian comedian Mark McConville. For this reason, we ask all participants to provide a short statement about themselves that will be used to help make the evening as engaging as possible.
