WADEM Congress on Disaster and Emergency Medicine 7-10 May 2019 Brisbane, Australia

Review Panel

Special Thanks to our Abstract Reviewers

A huge thank you to everyone who volunteered as a member of the Abstract Review Panel for the Congress. Over 570 abstracts were submitted and with 55 reviewers, we were able to distribute the workload so that no single reviewer was asked to review more than 35 abstracts. This helped ensure that all authors received notifications by 20 December, even though the abstracts submissions deadline was extended for two additional weeks to 26 November.

Unfortunately, given the number submissions received, we weren’t able to accept them all simply due to space and as a result, we also had to send some letters declining abstracts. Our thanks and commiserations to those authors, and we sincerely hope they will still be able to make the trip to Brisbane to participate in this exciting Congress.

In the meantime, please join with the Organizing Committee in thanking the following people for their efforts.
