On behalf of the Programme Committee, we invite you to submit an abstract for presentation at the
Australian and New Zealand Society of Evidence Based Policing (ANZSEBP) Conference
which will be held in 2021 for the first time ONLINE.

We invite police and researchers working with policing agencies to submit an abstract in one of the below formats on completed or in-flight research in policing.

Presentations should relate to one of the conference sub-themes and may include research to better understand and target problems, programs that are being trialled or have recently been evaluated, and efforts to implement evidence-based interventions in policing practices.  All abstracts should not exceed 250 words and consist of original work.

PRESENTATION FORMATS

While you will be asked to indicate your preferred presentation format, the programme committee may request an alternative format be considered. The committee will allocate presentations to the programme taking into account the preference of authors and the balance of the programme.

IN CONVERSATION PANELS

You are invited to submit a proposal for an ‘In Conversation’ session.  These sessions should be about real world situations with legal and ethical perspectives.  A moderator/chair poses questions around a particular topic to 2-4 panellists to discuss.  Questions will also be drawn from the audience through a live Q&A chat feed.

  • Proposals require a 150-250 word abstract and should identify the In Conversation Topic with a brief overview and list the names of the moderator and proposed presenters.
  • If accepted the panel will be scheduled within the concurrent conference programme.
  • A recording of the panel will be available to delegates through the online platform for 6 months post conference.
  • All participants in the panel must register and pay the required fee to attend the conference.

PERSPECTIVES SESSIONS

You are invited to submit a proposal for a ‘Perspectives’ session.  Each Perspectives Session will be dedicated to a particular theme and consist of a collection of 5 minute pre-recorded presentations chosen to reflect different perspectives on an issue.  These will be followed by a panel-like Q&A session between a presenter from each presentation and the session chair.  Questions will be submitted by the audience through a live Q&A chat feed.

  • Your submission must be aimed towards one of the conference sub-themes.
  • Submission requires a 250 word abstract overview of the presentation.
  • If accepted the presenter(s) must submit a 5 minute pre-recorded presentation in MP4 format by the required deadline.
  • A recording of the presentation and Q&A session on the scheduled day will be available to delegates through the online platform for 6 months post conference.
  • All presenters participating in the session must register and pay the required fee to attend the conference.

SHORT SHOT ORALS

This format is closest to the traditional ANZSEBP oral presentation.  It consists of a 10 minute pre-recorded oral presentation and will be scheduled with 2-3 other Short Shots and followed by a brief live Q&A between the presenters and chair.  

  • Submission requires a 250 word abstract overview of the presentation.
  • If accepted the presenter(s) must submit a 10 minute pre-recorded presentation in MP4 format by the required deadline.
  • The Short Shot will be scheduled in an appropriate concurrent session with others in the same theme followed by a minimum brief Q&A and discussion between the presenter(s) and chair.
  • A recording of the presentation and Q&A session on the scheduled day will be available to delegates through the online platform for 6 months post conference.
  • All presenters participating in the presentation must register and pay the required fee to attend the conference.

ON-DEMAND SHORT SHOT ORALS

This format is identical to the above SHORT SHOT ORALS but without the scheduled Live Q&A component.  These pre-recorded orals will be stored in the Resource Gallery of the online platform and will be available to delegates to view on-demand.  This is a good option for those presenters who do not wish to be scheduled in a session but still want to make their presentation available to delegates.  

  • Submission requires a 250 word abstract overview of the presentation.
  • If accepted the presenter(s) must submit a 10 minute pre-recorded presentation in MP4 format by the required deadline.
  • The Short Shot will be made available to registered delegates to watch ‘on-demand’ through the Resource Gallery on the Online Conference Platform from one week prior and 6 months post conference.
  • Lead/submitting presenter must register and pay the required fee to have their presentation included.
