Future Leaders Awards

We are pleased to advise applications are now being accepted for the Future Leaders Awards to attend the upcoming IEPA 11 Conference in Boston, October 2018.

IEPA wishes to encourage early career researchers and clinicians to continue to work in the field of early intervention. To coincide with our international conference, we have made available two awards, each receiving free registration to attend the conference together with US$1,000 towards expenses.

Eligible applicants will have completed their most recent degree (masters, PhD, MD, MBBS, nursing qualification, DClinPsych, etc.), post-doctoral fellowship, residency training or clinical fellowship within the last 5 years. The awards are aimed at those who have not yet reached a senior clinical or academic role. Applications will ONLY be considered from IEPA members as at 31st December, 2017.


Oral and Poster Submissions due 19th March 2018
Symposium decisions will be made by 1st March 2018. Individual authors whose symosium abstract was not accepted as part of a symposium session may re-submit their abstract as an oral or poster presentation. Oral abstracts will automatically be considered as posters if they are not accepted for presentation at the conference.

The last day to submit an oral or poster abstract for presentation at the meeting is 19th March 2018.
