Join us in Mexico City for the What Works Global Summit

WWGS 2019 will be held in Mexico City this October. This is an event for the global evidence community that brings together policymakers, practitioners, knowledge brokers and researchers from all over the world. Over 500 participants are expected to attend, to learn from each other, present their work, share experiences and expand their networks.

WWGS 2019 is also an opportunity to focus on the implications of our Campbell work for policy and practice. For example, our co-host CONEVAL, is a leader in social development impact evaluation and policy. We strongly encourage interactive sessions that bring different perspectives together.

The call for abstracts is open until 7 April 2019. We are looking for informative and inspiring presentations, posters and workshops in the following formats:

  • Panel presentation: an opportunity for your group to deliver a 60-minute interactive concurrent session.
  • 10-minute presentations that use non-traditional formats, such as chat shows (without PowerPoints), fishbowl conversations, and other formats allowing greater audience engagement.
  • Posters will be on display for one full day of the conference. You will have the opportunity to present your poster to participants during a hosted viewing session.
  • Workshop: On 14 and 15 October, there will be two-hour, four-hour or full day pre-conference workshops.

We are accepting abstracts in Spanish and English. There is limited capacity for Spanish parallel sessions, so if you can, let us know if you would be willing to give your presentation in English when you fill in the submission form.

A scientific committee of experts will review all the submitted abstracts in April. To find out more about the abstract selection criteria, click here.

Notifications will be sent to everyone who submitted an abstract by the end of April. The deadline for speaker acceptance and registration is 26 May.

We look forward to receiving your abstract submissions.
