Key Information

  • We accept abstracts in English. If it helps to reach a wider readership, a translated version of the abstract in the author’s preferred language can be included later, once the abstract has been accepted.

  • Authors must be registered and be included in the IPPA mailing list to ensure receipt of all updates concerning the conference. Visit the Contact Us page to update your details.

  • An author can present a maximum of two papers. However, this only applies to lead authors and panel chairs, e.g., as a panel chair and one paper, as a chair to two panels (but no paper presentation), etc. We might consider a separate poster presentation depending on authorships and circumstances. Please contact the IPPA Secretariat to confirm your eligibility for a separate poster entry.

  • In submitting the abstract, the author also grants the IPPA Secretariat and the organising committee the right to publish abstracts in the conference program, both online and in print format. The author also agrees to abide by the presentation criteria and other guidelines set by the IPPA 2022 organising committee and the session panel chair (such as time limits, structure, etc.).

  • Accepted abstracts may be edited, if necessary, but it is the author’s responsibility to ensure the lack of errors in its final format.

  • The IPPA 2022 organising committee reserves the right to reject any abstract if it does not meet these criteria.

  • All papers are to be presented in person at the IPPA22 Congress. IPPA cannot guarantee that facilities will be available for remote presentation during the conference.
