Call for workshop proposals: The Family Practice Conference 2021

The Dispute Resolution Committee's Conference Working Party have started work on this year's Family Practice Conference. This follows on from the success of last year's online event, which was attended by nearly 350 members.

The conference will take place 19-22 October and will be predominantly online, however the working party are keen to include a face-to-face element in the programme too. Covid guidelines and restrictions can change rapidly, so the working party will continue to shape the final programme over the summer. We are planning to release this at the beginning of autumn when we have a clearer picture of what will be possible face-to-face.

In any event, we will still be offering all the usual components of the conference, including workshops, and we are now calling for workshop proposals. It’s most likely that the workshops will be delivered online. If you would like to present a workshop at this conference, please fill in the form below.

Submit your workshop proposal

We would welcome proposals from all across the Resolution community. If you are new to presenting online, we will make sure you have the support you need to plan the online delivery of your workshop.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of your proposal prior to submitting, please contact us.

When submitting your workshop, please consider:

  • Workshops are 60 minutes. If you think your workshop will need more time, an option may be to deliver it in two parts
  • Whether you would be willing to deliver it more than once during the conference.
  • Whether you would prefer to cap the number of delegates that can attend your workshop. If you do, we will do what we can to ensure this. However, we may request flexibility on this.

The deadline for the second round of workshop submissions is Tuesday 31st August 2021.
