Call for Abstracts / Workshops / Virtual Registration

The Symposium will explore the tools and methods needed to support the translation of qualitative evidence into policy and practice, and will examine ways of strengthening capacity in this area, particularly in the global South. The Symposium also will provide opportunities to share with a multisectoral community your experiences and ideas on using qualitative evidence to support decision making.

Stipends for travel to the Symposium

If you are from a low or middle income country and have had a poster, oral presentation or workshop abstract accepted for the Symposium, you will be able to apply for a stipend to travel to the Symposium.

We hope to offer as many stipends as possible. All of the funds obtained from the registration fees of paying participants will be used to fund stipends.

When awarding stipends, we will assess the following factors:

  • Your involvement in qualitative research and decision making
  • Your planned involvement in the Symposium

We will also aim to achieve a balance in terms of stipend holders’ gender, background, sector and region.

Instructions for authors on how to prepare the oral presentations and posters are already available.
