We welcome contributions from all areas of dyslexia research and practice. For this IC, we would however be happy to receive proposals on Multilingualism, Mental Health, Mindfulness, Comorbidity, and Prevention.

On page 2 (next page) you will fill in your personal details.

On page 3 you will indicate what your contribution will be: Spoken Research Paper, Interactive Research Poster, Workshop, or Symposium (4 Spoken Research Papers on one topic). You will then be guided to the pages where you can fill in the titles (max 100 characters), authors, purpose (max 600 characters), method (max 600 characters), and results/conclusions  (max 600 characters) for Spoken Papers, Posters and Symposia. For Workshops you should specify in a title (max 100 characters), what the workshop is about  (max 400 characters), the audience you wish to target (max 100 characters), and the take-home message (max 400 characters).

Symposium Leads should submit all 4 papers of their symposium. They are also responsible for communicating the results of the review and instructions for registration (if the symposium is accepted) to their colleagues in the symposium.

Five (5) Spoken Research Papers will as much as possible be grouped under a common theme.

Symposia (4 talks) and Spoken Research Papers (5 talks) will be allocated 90-minutes slots in the conference programme, including questions and answers. Workshops will last 45 minutes. Interactive Posters will be presented all day. During coffee and lunch breaks (in total about one hour) poster presenters will be able to discuss their work with the audience.

Please edit your contribution properly so that we can use it for the conference programme and for the abstracts, which will be published in the conference book.

Handouts of your contributions can be sent electronically to the BDA up to two weeks before the conference. They will remain on a safe BDA site for about six months after the conference for delegates to download. Authors of accepted contributions will be informed of details nearer to the conference.


If you submit your answers you will not be able to return to this page.
