The abstract deadline for Short Communication, Posters, ePosters, AMEE Fringe and Conference Workshops is the 12th of March 2012.
Short communications are simultaneous, themed sessions included throughout the programme, with approximately six presentations per session. Each presenter is allocated 10 minutes for presentation followed by 5 minutes for questions and fifteen minutes for group discussion.
Posters are a useful method of communicating ideas about new approaches to education and research and are mounted throughout the Conference. To give them even greater value, themed sessions are scheduled in the AMEE programme, where presenters will be asked to give a two-three minute presentation of the key messages of the poster.
ePosters on an eLearning theme will be grouped together for presentation electronically on plasma screens. Presenters will have two minutes to introduce the key messages of their poster, following which there will be an opportunity for questions and discussion.
AMEE Fringe provides the opportunity to see something a little different – a new and perhaps provocative or idiosyncratic approach to healthcare professions education. Approximately 15 minutes is allocated for each presentation. There is no prescribed format, and presenters may use the time however they wish, with an emphasis on interactivity and engagement with the audience.
Conference workshops are either 1.5 or 1.75 hours’ duration, and should be highly interactive and participative. An indication of the level and whether previous knowledge/experience of the topic is advised should be included in the abstract.
Abstracts of maximum 200 words should be structured as follows: Background, Summary of work, Summary of results, Discussion, Conclusions, Take-home messages.
The deadline for submission is 12 March 2012.
AMEE 2012 will be held in the Centre de Congrès, Lyon, France from August 25 – 29 2012
