Call for Symposiums

Calling for Symposium Submissions

As part of the Conference program development, the IFA and COTA Queensland are calling on industry groups and the NGO sector to consider developing specialist symposia sessions within the Conference framework. Symposium submissions of particular interest include:

  1. Disasters and Older People
  2. Age Friendly Cities and Communities
  3. Care and Support for Older People (Community and Residential)
  4. Elder Abuse, Law and Rights
  5. Income Protection and Security

Each symposium requires a primary organiser (who is the chair and will serve as the single point of contact for the submission process) and must include details of other session presenters. Symposia sessions will be 90 minutes in length should accommodate 4 to 5 speakers.

Your organisations/groups are the experts across many of the Conference themes and participation will only strengthen your standing as leaders in the field. Please refer to the abstract template and guidelines below, and then submit your abstract here.
