Thank you to all that submitted an abstract committing your intent and interest in participating at AONL 2020. The response was overwhelming and is a true testament to all of the expertise and passion within the nursing leadership community.
Notification of acceptance
Notifications of acceptance or rejection of the abstracts will be sent to the individual listed as the primary presenter of the abstract no later than October 28. The primary presenter receives all correspondence concerning the abstract and is responsible for informing all other co-presenters of the status of the abstract.
All abstract presenters will be asked to reconfirm their attendance after receiving the notification. Accepting the invitation confirms the commitment to attend the conference and present. If you don't reconfirm your abstract presentation before the deadline, your abstract may be cancelled.
The intended outcome of a good abstract is to create a compelling presentation that will inspire and engage through dissemination of innovative, applicable ideas that meet a real need. AONL 2020 offers several sessions formats to enhance the learning, sharing, and networking experience for conference participants.
Traditional podium presentations should have clear takeaways and be participatory and as engaging as possible.
The goal is to have a conversation with an organized, visually appealing poster. Be prepared to bring the learner into the conversation.
Multiple presenters will deliver a 5-minute presentation. After all presenters have spoken, they will lead small-group discussions with participants. Due to the nature of the Ignite sessions, the selection process is a two-step process, requiring a video submission in the second round.
In the first 10-minutes the presenter poses an idea. The next 40-minutes is where, the presenter becomes the facilitator and invites discussion allowing the audience to steer the conversation.
Are you an expert or innovator in a foundational leadership skill (time management, engaging staff, leading an energized meeting, etc.)? Take on the 10 minute challenge to succinctly present advice to new leaders to develop that skill. Speakers should be experienced and succinct in their presentation of a focused topic or idea.
The following components must be included in each submission:
Organize, outline and write the abstract in a Word document before entering the content to the online submission. This will save time, ensure the word limits are met, avoid spelling errors and avoid your browser timing out of the session, causing you to start over. After the abstract is written, you can copy/paste the information into the submission form.
