JWCSC call for Papers

October 9, 2021

The next Joint World Congress on Stuttering and Cluttering, “One World Many Voices: A global collaboration”, is a collaborative effort between the International Cluttering Association (ICA), International Fluency Association (IFA), and International Stuttering Association (ISA) as well as local host organizations including the Canadian Stuttering Association (CSA) and the Association Bégaiement Communication (ABC). The conference will bring together historically diverse groups to explore experiences of living with, treating, and researching stuttering and cluttering. We want people who stutter or clutter to share their experiences, and to feel supported and valued; we want those who work with people who stutter and clutter to have opportunities to share and update their skills; and we want researchers to have an opportunity to present high-quality research in a stimulating environment. Online submission is open for both oral and poster presentations from people who stutter or clutter, clinicians, and researchers.

Preferred Presentation Types

Poster (60 minutes)

Poster presentations combine a verbal presentation with a visual aid. Poster sessions will be arranged to take place without additional parallel sessions. Authors will be required to set up their posters the morning of their presentation. Presenters must be available to discuss their poster during their 60--minute designated time. A display area on the panel of 48” by 60” will be allocated for each poster. Thumb tacks and other supplies will be available for the presenter.

Technical (60 minutes)

Technical sessions will consist of a 20 -minute oral presentation followed by a 10-minute question and answer section. Technical sessions must have a research or clinical focus. The purpose of a technical session is to convey scientific information or share clinical or research innovations.

Seminar (60 minutes)

Seminars are intended to provide in-depth knowledge on a topic for clinicians, researchers, or individuals in outreach or advocacy. Seminars will consist of 50-minute oral presentations followed by a 10-minute question and answer session. An exception for longer seminars will be made in certain circumstances.
