Call for Abstracts

Bringing together evidence, implementation, policy, and politics: Towards a better future for all

You are invited to submit an abstract for the Evidence and Implementation Summit (EIS) 2021, taking place in Sydney, Australia from 30-31 March 2021.

The Summit will bring together experts from across the world to talk about their experiences in generating and implementing evidence for better policy and practice. We are currently working on creative ways to ensure this happens in case of ongoing travel restrictions. Our need to come together to learn and share ideas is more important than ever.  

Contributions from a broad range of sectors are welcome, including:

  • Child and social welfare                                  

  • Education

  • Humanitarian aid

  • Crime and justice

  • International development

  • Environment and climate change

  • Early childhood

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community services   

  • Health and human services

  • Mental health services

Presentation Options

Oral presentation with PowerPoint (optional): an opportunity for you to deliver a 20-minute presentation to participants during a concurrent session. Please note that each presenter will be limited to only one concurrent oral session in the program.


Panel presentation: an opportunity for your group to deliver a 90-minute interactive panel presentation to engage with participants during a concurrent session. Please note that a facilitator must be identified and will be responsible for the coordination of the group. We suggest that the number of panelists be limited to a maximum of 4.


Poster: an opportunity for you to present your poster to participants during a hosted poster viewing session. Posters will be on display for the duration of the Summit.


Note: We encourage proposals for presentations that use non-traditional formats, such as chat shows (without PowerPoints), fishbowl conversations, and other formats allowing greater audience engagement.
