What is this session about?

Building on last year and feedback from delegates, this year we aim to again offer the ‘3 minute research’ session. At the conference this year however, it will be included as part of the main scientific program.

In this session, selected researchers will have 3 minutes to discuss their research project. No slides (e.g. PowerPoint presentations) are permitted.

The session is designed for people wanting to propose a research project, or about to commence or recently commenced a research project.


The aims of this session are to:

  1. Build research collaboration and capacity in the infection prevention and control community.
  2. Enable researchers and delegates to share proposed ideas and gain feedback from peers.
  3. Explore the diversity and quality of upcoming research being undertaken in Australia.
  4. Allow researchers to share details about proposed or recently commenced research projects
  5. Provide a forum to assist researchers in improving recruitment or participation in proposed or recently commenced projects.


The person chairing the session will try to ensure those presenting get the best possible value from their presentation/time.
