DEADLINE EXTENDED!Please note, abstract submissions are now dueby Friday 22 January 2016. Due to technical challenges in moving to a new abstract submission system, we have decided to extend the deadline by a week.

 

 

The 13th World Congress of the International Association of Bioethics will be held in Edinburgh in 14 -17 June 2016.  The Congress theme is Individuals, Public Interests and Public Goods: What is the contribution of bioethics?

 

We invite interested presenters to submit abstracts for inclusion in the congress programme. The abstract submission for all elements is now open. The deadline to submit abstracts is Friday 22th January 2016 by 17:00 (GMT).

 

Submission details are outlined below, and please also read the Presentation Guidelines  (insert link to http://iab2016.com/presentation-guidelines/) before submitting an abstract.

 

 

Congress Streams

The Congress Theme ‘Individuals, Public Interests and Public Goods: What is the contribution of bioethics’ will be explored within three major streams, each of which will run concurrently throughout the Congress:

 

(1) the main traditional academic stream 

(2) the early career researchers (ECR) stream 

(3) the Arts+Ethics stream 

 

(1 & 2) Academic Stream and ECR Stream

The Academic and ECR streams will explore leading-edge bioethics issues through a wide variety of innovative presentations to promote a sense of dynamism at the Congress. The presentation types include Symposia, Oral presentations, Poster, 20 X 20 and Three Minute Thesis. 

 

There are a limited and competitive number of spaces available at the Congress for presentations across a range of formats. Delegates are welcome to submit more than one abstract, but only one submission per delegate will be chosen for the final programme. The only exceptions to this will be participation in a symposium panel plus one other presentation opportunity. 

 

 

(3) Arts and Ethics Call for Submissions

We are calling for contributions to the Arts+Ethics stream, which is interested in work that explores interactions and relationships between the arts, broadly understood, and bioethics (and academia). Contributions by academics, practitioners and artists relating to any aspect of ethics and the arts are welcome, but we are particularly interested in contributions that address the following: 

 

  • • funding of arts/ethics collaborations; 

  • • working across disciplines; 

  • • body ethics and art; 

  • • public engagement and the arts for ethic 

  • • technology and the arts and ethics; 

  • • global bioethics and the arts; 

  • • public interests or public goods and 

  • • the arts and ethics. 

This Stream will be composed of three presentation elements: an Academic Element, an Exhibition Element, and a Performance Element.

 

Academic Element: This will include academic explorations of arts and bioethics, and delegates are invited to submit abstracts based on the presentation formats Symposia, Oral, Poster, 20×20, and 3 Minute Thesis. Please see the table below for specific requirements.

 

Exhibition Element: There will be an exhibition space at the Congress Centre where we invite anyone wishing to exhibit existing, new or bespoke art (sculpture, illustrations, installation, etc.) with a bioethics theme or connection.

 

Performance Element: We wish to present a performative element (i.e., film, theatrical performance, dance performance, etc.) during the Congress. Depending on type and needs, this would run during the day at the Congress Centre or in the evening at an external site.  Filmmakers, theatrical performers, dancers, etc., wishing to contribute should submit an abstract.

 

To contribute to one or more of these elements, see the submission guidelines below. 

 

Themes

Presenters are asked to submit abstracts under the following themes: 

 

  • • Arts+Ethics 

  • • Global Bioethics 

  • • Individuals, Public Interests and Public Goods 

  • • Public Health, Ethics and Law 

 

Review Process
All abstracts will be peer reviewed by members of the Organising Committee and a carefully selected team of international reviewers. Assessments will be anonymous and managed via an electronic points-based system focussed on (1) originality, (2) significance, (3) rigour and (4) fit to conference themes. The entire process will be overseen by the Organising Committee, which has final authority on decisions. The Organising Committee reserves the right to propose an alternative format of presentation to that suggested by applicants.
