Lightning Talks

Feeding Matters Lightning Talk

The lightning talk at Feeding Matters' virtual International PFD Conference (IPFDC) is a forum for presenters from around the world to share their work in the field of pediatric feeding. This will be an opportunity to quickly and easily become acquainted with work on the cutting edge of our field.

The lightning talk will be held entirely virtually Thursday, April 29, 2021. 

Qualifying Lightning Talks Include:

  • Case Studies
  • Literature Reviews
  • Quality-Improvement Efforts
  • Research Studies

All lightning talks must be related to work in the field of pediatric feeding disorder, and any discipline working within this field may submit a lightning talk. Abstracts may be submitted on work that is in progress at the time of abstract submission, but data collection and analysis must be complete at the time of the conference presentation. Selected presenters will have 5 minutes to share. 

Video recordings of the presentations must be submitted to Feeding Matters as an .mp4 file. Additional details will be provided following the selection of lightning talks.

Applications are due Friday, July 17, 2020.
