11th International CFT Conference
'Caring Connections'


EDINBURGH & ONLINE
10-13 October 2022

Our 11th International CFT Conference is taking place in October, and we're excited to be exploring research and clinical practice reflections on this year's theme of 'Caring Connections'. After a few years online, we are looking forward to being together in the beautiful city of Edinburgh at the Royal College of Physicians (numbers and restrictions permitting). This conference will be a hybrid conference, so livestreaming options will be available for those unable to join us in person, and sessions will be recorded and available to view shortly after the conference.

We hope to see you there!

Equality, Diversity & Inclusivity Fund

We recognise that there are, for many of us, numerous barriers to attending conferences, so in 2019 we introduced our Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity Fund (EDIF). The EDIF offers grants to assist those who wound otherwise be unable, to attend our international conference by covering the cost of conference registration. A small number of grants are available in 2022.

To apply, please complete forward the application form (see below) to: hello@compassionatemind.co.uk

The deadline for applications is

1st September 2022 for f2f attendance

1st October 2022 for livestream attendance

We also offer a discount for those from emerging countries - please see our pricing section for more information.

Poster Presentations

Setting and materials

Each poster chosen for display will be allocated a poster board. The poster boards are portrait and take an A0 size poster. Please note, posters can only be attached using adhesive Velcro tabs – these will be available on the day if required. There is no facility for audio-visual presentations in the poster display area and no electrical outlets available. Your presentation should be delivered using only the materials fixed to the poster board.

Setting up

We request that presenters attend as much of the conference as possible (at least 2 out of 4 days). Poster presenters should arrive approximately 15 minutes before registration to set up their display materials. Please note that no responsibility can be taken for any loss or damage to your poster or any other display materials and putting up your poster is taken as acceptance of these conditions.

Display materials

Please make sure that the information on your poster is clear and visible. It is essential to include a clear, complete heading to enable people to identify the poster and the presenter. As a general rule, it is recommended that the title be in 3 cm print or larger. The authors and the affiliations in 1.5 cm print. Please include an abstract typed in a large, clear type and several large, clearly labelled graphs and other visual aids. Figures should take up a regular page, but even larger materials would be desirable. If tables are included, they should probably be larger than a standard sheet of paper. Pictures, diagrams, and other materials of adequate size are often helpful. A useful rule here is that your material should be easily read from a distance of 1 to 2 metres. All materials you wish to display should be related to your presentation and the materials described in the abstract you submitted to the Compassionate Mind Foundation.

Poster content

The basic rule is to provide a short, clear, non-technical description of what you did, why you did it, and what you found. Generally, you should not go into detail regarding subjects, apparatus, or details of procedure — those who want to learn more can request a full copy of the paper. For example, you should keep references and reviews of the literature to a minimum. The format requires you to be bold in your style and to condense complicated descriptions into a few short sentences. Above all, a poster is not just a regular paper in large text. It is a discussion-oriented format. The poster should communicate the issue and conclusion. The discussion in person with conference delegates should fill in the details.

Presentation

Individuals may view your poster at coffee breaks or lunch. The conference committee will request that you should make yourself available to discuss the materials and answer questions for at least the last 30 minutes of lunch. Many presenters wish to provide handouts about their project. These may include an abstract of the paper or perhaps a copy of the complete paper itself. Other authors prefer to send reprints of their paper by email after the conference

DEADLINE: 26th September 2022
