WONCA Europe Conference, in conjunction with the RCGP Annual Conference 2022
28 June - 1 July 2022 | ExCeL, London

Detailed information about presentation forms

State of the art session

Duration 60 or 75 minutes. Presentation and discussion of new medical aspects/knowledge/publications which are relevant and could change our work in General Practice (GP)/Family medicine (FM).

This is mainly a format for medical education discussing also the methodology of underlying studies and integrating knowledge of the other participants. How and in which situations should we change our diagnostic, therapeutic or management strategies and which are confirmed?


Duration 60 or 75 minutes

With a thematic, practical or methodical focus and an interactive, activating format that strongly involves the participants. A rough time schedule with the activating methods must be submitted for the workshop.


60 or 75 min

Symposia can be submitted by working groups or consortia to present different results of a larger project in context. For example, symposia are suitable for:

- cluster-randomised controlled studies to discuss different endpoints

- mixed methods studies, from which qualitative research results are to be presented in connection with quantitative results

- Results from care studies with reference to implementation in standard care

- different studies on the same topic.

If possible, external researchers who do not belong to the same working group and who present the results in the same or a suitable field should also be involved.

To apply for a symposium, a framework abstract must be submitted which describes the overall topic, the title of the (max. 6) individual contributions and the names of the lecturers as well as the added value of a symposium presentation compared to individual lectures.

It is NOT required to submit individual abstracts of lectures that are included in the symposium.





Workshop report from the practice

Research ideas from practice

4 minutes presentation

8 minutes discussion

This format offers general practitioners the opportunity to combine their own practical experience with research ideas.

The idea is briefly presented and poured into a potential research project with experts present. The combination of empirical medicine and evidence is in the foreground here.

Science Slam

The Science Slam is suitable for entertainers and story plates. Show why your heart is attached to your research project! A 10-minute slam with high entertainment value for scientists AND amateurs.

No "dry science" but science packed excitingly and vividly! (An example can be found here). Award ceremony directly at the end of the session!


10 minutes lecture

The scientific lecture serves the presentation of research projects, results within the target group. If a presentation (e.g. with PowerPoint) is planned, the maximum number of slides is 10 (plus one title slide and one closing slide).

5 minutes discussion

The effects on science and practice will be discussed together with the lecturer. In addition, ideas and messages from the plenum should stimulate discussion.

1 slide – 5 minutes

5 minutes lecture (3 min presentation, 2 min discussion)

Brevity is the soul of wit! Show the central aspects of your work on one slide. It is not the mass of information that makes it, but the targeted and step-by-step structure, if necessary with an animated slide. Particularly suitable for introducing a new project or process. Methodically complex contributions or result discussions are less suitable for this format.

Case presentations by young doctors

 5 minutes of presentation, 10 minutes of discussion for young doctors and mentors: description of a patient with complaint und what followed: what can we learn from this? How should further management be performed?


Present your poster in one of the respective poster sessions or as e‑Poster

The best poster submissions will be for poster presentation sessions (5 min presentation, 2 min discussion) and poster awards.
