Abstracts

Abstracts can be submitted online from early May to early July 2019, to be presented as:

  • ASCIA 2019 posters (displayed from Wednesday 4 to Friday 6 September 2019); or
  • ASCIA 2019 oral presentations; or
  • ASCIA 2019 clinical grand rounds oral presentations (for advanced trainees only).

All accepted abstracts are published in the online Internal Medicine Journal and these can be accessed on the ASCIA website by the end of September 2019: www.allergy.org.au/conferences/ascia-annual-conference/published-abstracts-ascia


App

To improve your meeting experience, ASCIA is pleased to partner with a content publishing platform, myINTERACT, to provide delegates with an ASCIA 2019 App. This includes access to:

  • Interactive conference program with ability to create a personalised schedule and record notes digitally
  • Biographies of international speakers
  • Searchable abstract and poster library which eliminates the need to take photos during poster sessions
  • Participation in polling and ability to ask questions using your mobile device during selected interactive sessions
  • Notifications of session changes

Prior to the conference, all delegates will receive an email invitation from myINTERACT to connect to the app. Prior download is encouraged to ensure convenient access to all the information you may need for the conference.


Attendance Certificates

A certificate of attendance is provided to each delegate and is included in the registration envelope, together with a receipt for the registration payment.


Awards and Travel Grants

A limited number of travel grants are awarded (during the conference) to delegates (advanced trainees, dietitians, nurses, students) who reside outside of the region and have submitted an abstract for a poster and/or clinical grand round case presentation.

Awards of $1,000 each for selected posters and case presentations will be presented at the end of the conference. After the conference these are listed on the ASCIA website: www.allergy.org.au/hp/awards-grants/ascia-award-grant-scholarship-recipients

These awards, as well as AIFA 2019 research grants, will be announced at the ASCIA 2019 Conference closing function.
