  • Endocrinology
  • Social and Political Sciences
  • Surgery
  • Law, Policy and Ethics
  • Voice and Communication
  • Reproductive health

In case you are unsure if your abstract fits in one of the streams, or you want to suggest an additional stream, please contact us at contact@epath.eu. If your abstract is a multidisciplary or interdisciplinary research, or if you are submitting a proposal for a Roundtable or a State-of-the-Art Symposium, you can choose the option ‘multidisciplinary‘.

Formats

EPATH accepts submissions for Oral and Poster presentations, Round Tables (previously ‘workshop’) and State-of-the-Art mini-symposia. Please find more information for each format:

Oral presentation

An oral presentation is a 10 minute presentation with Q&A afterwards about a study or topic in transgender healthcare or research. The abstract for an oral presentation is structured in Background / Methods / Results and Conclusions.

Poster presentation

A poster is a visual presentation of your study results. Poster abstracts are structured in Background / Methods / Results and Conclusions. Students and young researchers are warmly invited to submit poster presentations.

Round Table

A round table is an interactive discussion (in the format of a webinar) on a subject in which participants share knowledge and experiences. Subjects can include current debates and ethical dilemmas in transgender healthcare, working in specific settings, working with specific groups,… Preference will be given to round tables that are topically relevant and feature speakers across disciplines or geographical regions. You might want to choose the topic ‘multidisciplinary‘ in this case when you submit your abstract.

The time allotted for a round table is 60 minutes, Q&A included.

 

State-of-the-art Symposium

State-of-the-Art Symposia include cutting edge research, cross-cultural and interdisciplinary approaches in transgender health. Symposia typically have 3 to 5 presenters.

Preference will be given to symposia that are topically relevant and feature speakers across disciplines or geographical regions.

For symposia, multiple abstracts need to be submitted for every presentation within the symposium. You might want to choose the topic ‘multidisciplary‘ in case that fits the symposium best. When submitting an abstract for a symposium, please submit in the following format: “Title: subtitle“. The Title should be the same for the whole group of presentations belonging together, the subtitle must be abstract-specific.

The time allotted for symposia is 60 minutes, Q&A included.
