Call for symposia

The Organising Committee of Biological Psychiatry Australia (BPA) are inviting members to submit nominations for a symposium for their annual 2016 conference. The BPA 2016 Conference will be held from 13-14th October, 2016 at Quality Hotel Noah’s On the Beach in Newcastle.

Each symposium should be 90 minutes long and include four presenters and a discussant. Any of these five presenters may serve as the chairperson, or an alternate chairperson can be nominated. Each presenter should speak for 15 to 20 minutes, and a minimum of 10 minutes should be allocated to the discussant.

This year we are seeking 3 or 4 symposia to include in our program. If we receive more symposia than we can fit into the program then the local organising committee will rank the symposia.

To consider a symposium we will need to receive the abstracts of the 4 presenters as well as an overview of the symposium (up to 250 words).

Symposia submissions will close on Friday June 3rd 2016, 5pm EST.
