Interdisciplinary Conference on Systematic Reviews

Please see the message below from the organizing committee of the 2012 Campbell Colloquium. 

Time is running out to submit poster proposals for the 2012 Campbell Colloquium!Deadline for poster submissions: 15 February 2012
Behind all great research is great methodology. The Campbell Colloquium,
29-31 May, 2012, in Copenhagen will showcase some of the most exciting systematic reviews being conducted in crime and justice, education, social welfare and international development. The Colloquium will also provide participants with the opportunity to enhance their understanding of the methodology behind these reviews through workshops led by international experts in systematic review methods. Whether you are an experienced systematic reviewer or merely interested in evidence-based policy and practice, these workshops offer the perfect chance to learn about the methodology behind a systematic review.
The Campbell Colloquium call for posters will close 15 February. Have you completed a systematic review, or in the middle of conducting one, which looks at the effectiveness of social policies, programs or interventions? Does your research focus on one of the following areas: crime and justice, education, international development, social welfare or methods (knowledge synthesis/implications for synthesis)?

Presenting a poster of your work at the 2012 Campbell Colloquium is a valuable and interactive way to promote and share your work with researchers, policy makers and practitioners interested in evidence-based policy and practice.

Posters will be on display throughout the duration of the colloquium. Time will be allocated throughout the colloquium when authors will be available to discuss the work presented in their poster with interested colloquium participants.

We welcome submissions which look at questions of effectiveness, risk, diagnosis, prevalence, and incidence and are open to a wide range of methodologies using quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods approaches.

Posters must be in English and represent original work. Submissions should include a one-page summary with an abstract (max. 200 words) of the results to be sent as a PDF file with full title, authors names, affiliations and addresses. The abstracts will be reviewed and selected by a committee comprised of Campbell Steering Group Members, Editors, and affiliates. The submitting authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection via e-mail by 1 March 2012.
