Call for Presentations

Want to speak at Lifestyle Medicine 2019? Do you have something important to share relevant to one of the proposed streams or Lifestyle Medicine in particular? There are limited opportunities to speak in one of the concurrent streams (20, 30 or 40 minutes + panel/Q&A) or to present a pre-conference workshop or session (usually a shared 2 hour session).

Please note that the Call for Presentations is not the same as the Call for Abstracts. The Call for Presentations is for those who are leaders in their field, are experienced and confident public speakers, and have compelling science, research, clinical or public health practice to present.

Key dates

  • The call for presentations closes 30 November 2018

Instructions for the submission of presentations

  • Email an outline of your presentation (title, 200-300 word blurb or abstract and references) to
  • Video examples of you presenting may be helpful to your application
  • We may ask for a copy of the Powerpoint slides (or similar) you want to present
  • If your application is successful you will receive complimentary registration to attend the conference (travel and accommodation not included)

How will submissions be assessed?

The call for presentations is highly competitive. Applications will be assessed by the conference committee against criteria including:

  • The standing of the presenter in their field and suitability to present to the expected audience
  • The extent to which the content is new, original, innovative or important
  • The scientific, academic and/or clinical rigour of the work
  • The extent to which the content addresses the themes of the conference

It is important to note that in selecting presentations, the committee needs to consider many aspects of programming the conference, such as the learning objectives for each session, the mix of topics being presented, the mix of speakers (multidisciplinary), presentation style, even down to the proportion of male and female speakers! So we hope you understand that if we are not able to accept your presentation, it is very unlikely to be a reflection on the importance or quality of your work.
