We were delighted was no curtailment on the number of researchers, other

academics, services users and carers and professionals who submitted conference

abstracts for consideration by the Conference Abstract Committee for the delivery

of small group presentations and poster presentations.

The reach of the conference across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland,

Scotland, Wales and England was noted with abstract submissions also received

from all across Ireland. This is all testimony to the success of the conference.

Despite the additional complexities of a virtual event presenters were all very

responsive and chairs of the live sessions kept the event engaging and interactive.

Access to the conference is available on: SWSC Research Conf on Vimeo

"What an absolutely marvellous conference! Quite apart from the great presenters the slick interfaces,

musical interludes, poster and resource rooms etc. They were all brilliant"!

"I think the event was a great success; I dipped in and out of as many of the presentations as I

could and I thought they were really effective over Zoom. Well done on hosting the first virtual

conference hopefully by next year the virtual option will be just that and not a necessity".
