Before proceeding to the online submission, please review the Congress Themes of WFOT Congress 2014 and read through the below information and guidelines.
The WFOT Congress 2014 programme will contain a balance of different teaching/learning formats, and a balance of abstracts from a range of sources, for example, clinically based, research, academia, students, clients and others.
You will be required to indicate your preferred presentation type – oral, poster or workshop presentation – when submitting your abstract. In principle, your abstract will only be considered for acceptance in your nominated preferred presentation type. However the Scientific Programme Committee reserves the right to determine whether the abstract will be accepted as an oral, poster, workshop or other presentation format, giving consideration to the author's preference; available time; and, balance within the programme*.
Proposals submitted to In-Congress Workshop may be asked to organise the session as a Pre-Congress Workshop programme.
To enable as many people as possible to participate in the Congress programme, each presenting author will be offered no more than two presentations.
Oral paper presentations will provide an opportunity to report on original research, innovative programmes and professional practices, theoretical and conceptual advances, and professional issues relating to the Congress theme. For oral presentations, there are longer and shorter presentation types.
Please check your preference when submitting the abstract.
The Scientific Committee will consider scheduling a variety of oral presentation formats for accepted abstracts – authors will be advised. Formats may include:
Posters provide a visual display of new techniques, programmes, research or professional innovations. They are the ideal medium for the presentation of complex visual material.
Posters will be presented concurrently within the Congress programme. Accepted authors will be notified of the details of their poster presentation format.
Posters can be prepared either in English or Japanese.
The Scientific Programme Committee will consider scheduling a variety of poster display formats for accepted abstracts – authors will be advised (see above*). Formats may include:
WFOT Congress 2014 invites proposals for In-Congress and Pre-Congress Workshops. Workshops will offer an opportunity to develop participants' skills using a variety of presentation methods that are interactive and less formal in delivery. Interactive lectures, case studies and demonstrations are suited to this type of presentation.
In-Congress Workshops are organised during the WFOT Congress 2014 from
June 18-21, 2014.
A limited number of In-Congress workshops will be selected to run during the Congress.
Date and room allocation will be determined by the WFOT Congress 2014 Organiser and Scientific Programme Committee.
Simultaneous interpretation is arranged by the WFOT Congress 2014, if needed.
Pre-Congress Workshops will be held on June 17, 2014 before the WFOT Congress 2014 starts.
This is self-funding programme – registration for Pre-Congress Workshops is not included in the Congress 2014 registration fee. A minimum number of registered participants is required for each Pre-Congress Workshop to procede. The budget for the Pre-Congress Workshops will be determined by the Congress Organiser, taking into consideration factors including potential speaker fees/honoraria/reimbursements; costs of materials; venue hire; catering, etc.
Simultaneous interpretation will be arranged by the WFOT Congress 2014, if needed.
Details of organising Pre-Congress Workshops will be announced shortly.
