Call for Papers for IAEN Preconference in Melbourne
The International AIDS Economics Network (IAEN) is now welcoming the submission of abstracts for the upcoming 8th AIDS and Economics preconference.
This call is open to individuals who are conducting research on the issue of HIV/AIDS and economics. Typical topics in past preconferences have included HIV costing, cost-effectiveness analysis, resource allocation and expenditure tracking, AIDS and the workplace, AIDS and the private sector, economics and behavior change, and socio-economic impact assessments
In addition to individual submissions, groups who would like to propose a panel on one particular topic may do so by proposing presenters and abstracts as a group. The panel should not comprise more than four abstracts. Reviewers reserve the option of selecting a panel to present, selecting individual abstracts within a panel or rejecting all abstracts within a proposed panel.
Selected papers will be presented during a 1-day preconference on July 19, 2011, immediately prior to the XXth International AIDS Conference to be held on July 20-25 in Melbourne Australia.
Organizers will NOT be able to provide scholarships to attend the IAEN preconference and therefore participants must identify alternative sources of funding to attend the meeting and the subsequent conference.
Abstracts submissions should be structured as follows:
- Background: Indicate the purpose and objective of the research, the hypothesis that was tested or a description of the problem being analyzed or evaluated.
- Methods: Describe the setting/location for the study, study design, study population, ethical considerations, data collection and methods of analysis used.
- Results: Present as clearly and detailed as possible the findings/outcome of the study, with specific results in summarized form.
- Conclusions: Briefly discuss the data and main outcome of the study. Emphasize the significance for HIV prevention, treatment, care and/or support, and implications of the results.
The abstract text body is limited to 300 words. Titles are limited to 50 words. Please limit your abstract to one page when printed in MS Word document format.
Please submit abstracts or any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate in your submission if you wish to submit individually or as a panel.
