Submit an Abstract

Abstracts are being sought for oral presentations (10 minute presentation) and poster presentations on all aspects of laryngology (including voice, swallowing and upper airway).

Categories include:

New Investigators Forum

Submit an abstract for our New investigators Forum. Investigators within 5 years of qualification (PhD or FRACS) are invited to submit an abstract for consideration of the New Investigators award.

Two finalists will be invited to present their work in oral presentation at the upcoming LSA meeting in Auckland, November 2020. A certificate award will be given to the best presentation.

Presentations should follow other submission criteria and be submitted via the portal.

Key Dates

Abstract Selection

The Scientific Programming Committee will review abstracts suitable for presentation at the conference, based on scientific validity and subject relevance.

In addition to the free papers, the scientific program will comprise keynote and invited papers, panels and clinical forums.

In submitting an abstract, authors acknowledge they may be required to present on any day (Friday, Saturday or Sunday) of the conference, as we cannot commit to time scheduling to suit all authors.

Given the limited number of oral presentation places available, the committee may determine that some abstracts are better suited to poster rather than oral presentation.

All submissions will be evaluated by the six members of the Scientific Programming Committee and the decision whether to accept or decline proposals will be final.

Accepted abstracts will be published in the conference handbook.

Abstract Format

Abstracts must be a maximum of 250 words and include the following:
1. Short Title (max 20 words)
2. Authors' Names (asterisk the presenting author)
3. Structure with the headings:

4. Presenting author's contact details (including institution, address, email and telephone)
5. Preferred presentation format (oral presentation or poster)

Presentation Types

Oral Presentations

Oral Presentations will be allocated ten (10) minutes; consisting of eight (8) minutes to present plus two (2) minutes to answer questions. The scientific committee at its discretion may allocate more time for presentations.
Papers should be presented using PowerPoint projection (16:9 size). Overheads will not be permitted. Video presentations of interesting cases will need to be provided prior to the conference.

Please bring your presentation PowerPoint slides on a memory stick to the audio visual speaker's preparation room on arrival at the conference for loading onto the conference laptop computers. Please also bring a back-up of your presentation on a separate memory stick in case of presentation failure.
