Scientific Symposium: Twelve days left to submit abstracts


There are now just 12 days left until the deadline for the submission of additional abstracts for the IRCT Scientific Symposium.

Given the impressive response to the initial call for abstracts for this landmark Symposium, an additional call was opened and will close on 29 February 2016.

All rehabilitation centres, survivors, researchers and academics can submit an abstract, poster or workshop proposal and contribute to making the Symposium as diverse, relevant and cross-disciplinary as possible.

The Symposium takes place from 5 to 7 December 2016 in collaboration with rehabilitation centre Colectivo Contra la Tortura y la Impunidad (CCTI), in Mexico City and is titled Delivering on the promise of the right to rehabilitation.

There is an online abstract submission and review system in place to ensure the process is efficient and easy to follow. Here, you will also find further details on the themes and the latest version of the programme for inspiration.

You can read the full English Call for Abstracts and Spanish version (Convocatoria adicional para los resúmenes) here.

Those who require further information on submitting an abstract can contact Lars Døssing Rosenmeier at and Leanne MacMillan at
