Proceedings to be published online
The organisers of ODC are very pleased to announce that the conference proceedings will be published in Procedia – Social and Behavioral Sciences on Science Direct. This will mean that submissions accepted for the ODC 2014 proceedings will be freely available to anyone to read, download and cite.
This initiative is being sponsored by the charity Action for Stammering Children (ASC). The charity is committed to disseminating clinical and research information about stammering in the UK and internationally and is sponsoring the publication of ODC proceedings in this format in order to maximize access to the most current science and methods of working.
The aim is that the proceedings will reflect the range of presentations made at the conference. Submissions will be accepted from both oral and poster presentations; research or seminar sessions; and, adult or child focused presentations. Authors will be invited to submit their proceedings after the conference has taken place. More details of this process will follow.
TRAVERS REID AWARD
The annual £300 award recognises excellence and innovation from new researchers within the field of stammering. The award is open to any student (full or part time; undergraduate or postgraduate; UK or international) whose research project has been accepted for presentation (oral or poster) at the 10th Oxford Dysfluency Conference (ODC). The research project must focus on children or young people who stammer and will have been completed within the last three years. Find out more HERE
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION FORMATS
One aim of the Oxford Dysfluency Conference is to encourage stuttering research and to advance this aim we will be providing a high quality scientific forum for that research.
All abstracts will be reviewed to ensure scientific rigor. Authors are requested to consider the relevance of research findings for clinical practice. Submissions with a clinical focus should consider the evidence base for the methods.
Abstract submissions are sought for the following presentation formats:
Posters may have a clinical or research focus. Please submit a 200 – 300 word abstract. Sessions will be arranged to take place without additional parallel sessions. Authors will be required to set up their posters in advance of the sessions and to be available to present and discuss their posters during the sessions. A display area on the panel of 1 meter wide x 1.5 meters high (3’3” x 4.5’4.5”) will be allocated for each poster.
These should be 15 minutes duration, plus 5 minutes for questions. Please submit a 400 -500 word abstract summarizing the aims, methodology, results and conclusions of the research.
Junior Researcher Forum
The Junior Researcher Forum will target those at the start of their research careers, such as current and recent undergraduates or postgraduates, and practicing clinicians. Such researchers will have the opportunity to present and discuss their research plans or current results to a panel of international specialists in a supportive, constructive, and dynamic environment. Presentations will be 10 minutes and panel discussions will be up to 20 minutes. The panel will comprise members of the scientific committee, expert clinicians and keynote speakers from the conference. If you wish to participate in the Junior Researcher Forum, please submit a 400 - 500 word abstract, describing your research and any particular questions you would like the panel to help you consider.
Where possible, research should be presented as a Research Paper. However, the Committee recognizes that there will be some researchers who have a body of research or a theoretical perspective that they wish to present that would not fit into the research paper format. There are a limited number of one hour sessions available to meet the needs of these eminent researchers. Please submit a 400-500 word abstract for consideration.
Seminars should have skills development as a focus and may have may have a clinical or research focus. They will be 1 hour duration and should include both theoretical and practical aspects. Please submit a 400-500 word abstract including the aims and content of the seminar. It may be possible to offer longer seminar sessions in exceptional circumstances.
Scientific Committee Presentation Advisor
Conference presenters will have the opportunity to gain support and advice from a member of the Scientific Committee during the development of the presentation. The Scientific Committee member will be available to discuss options for presentation content and format, and potential audience questions, both prior to and during the conference. If you would like to have a Scientific Committee Member advisor, please contact Dave Rowley or Sharon Millard.
