Australasian Cochrane Symposium

Join us at this year's Australasian Cochrane Symposium in Melbourne on 22-23 November.

The theme of this year’s Symposium is 'Towards living evidence'. Task automation, machine learning, data linkage and citizen science are just some examples of how the production and dissemination of evidence is being transformed. Whether for systematic reviews or guidelines, we now have tools, systems and structures to help us attain the goal of having continually updated evidence to inform decision-making. 

We are interested in receiving abstracts that focus on the timely production of high-quality systematic reviews and other evidence syntheses, and the use of this evidence to support health decision-making. We particularly encourage submission of abstracts that relate to the ‘living evidence’ theme. 

Venue and program constraints limit the number of presentations we can accept. Depending on the number and scope of submissions we receive, we may choose to have more (but shorter) oral presentations rather than fewer longer ones.

Please submit your abstract by Tuesday 31 July by completing our online form.

Full details of our program and venue will be available on our website at in July.
