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 and as a hybrid online event from 30-31 March 2021.

The Summit will bring together experts from across the world to present virtually and in person about their experiences in generating and implementing evidence for better policy and practice. We are currently designing a hybrid program that will enable us to host presentations from a wide network of global contributors who might otherwise be unable to attend due to travel restrictions or health concerns. 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 may be limited to only one oral presentation.


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.


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.
