Important information

IPWEA recognises the important contribution of speakers and their organisations to the success of IPWEA professional development events. IPWEA also respects that delegates pay to attend the program for its educational and informative benefit.  IPWEA therefore requires that presentations are not overtly sales orientated.

Presentations should be in line with required workplace standards ensuring content and commentary do not contain sexual innuendo, discriminatory references or other inappropriate remarks that may be considered offensive by attendees.

Accepted abstract requirements

The author must register and be at the conference to present the submission.

Please note that all conference costs, including registration fees, travel and accommodation, must be met from your own resources.

Lodgement of an abstract acknowledges your consent to publication of the abstract on the website and in the Conference App available to all delegates (if accepted). However, the Conference App and website will include only abstracts. Please, be aware that conference registration fees will not be reimbursed in case of no-show.

Presenters who do not meet these requirements will be withdrawn from the conference program.
