  • Genetics and Neurophysiology
  • More than speech
  • Cluttering and acquired stuttering
  • Advancing clinical practice through research



One aim of the Oxford Dysfluency Conference is to encourage stuttering research and to advance this aim we will be providing a high-quality scientific forum for that research.

All abstracts will be reviewed to ensure scientific rigor. Authors are requested to consider the relevance of research findings for clinical practice. Submissions with a clinical focus should consider the evidence base for the methods.

Abstract submissions are sought for the following presentation formats:

Posters may have a clinical or research focus. Please submit a 200–300 word abstract.

Research Paper
These presentations will be 20 minutes duration, plus 5 minutes for questions. Please submit a 400-500 word abstract summarizing the aims, methodology, results and conclusions of the research.

Discussion Paper
Where possible, research should be presented as a Research Paper. However, the Committee recognizes that there will be some researchers who have a body of research or a theoretical perspective that they wish to present that would not fit into the research paper format. There will be a limited number of 1-hour sessions available. Please submit a 400-500 word abstract for consideration.

Scientific Committee Presentation Advisor
Conference presenters will have the opportunity to gain support and advice from a member of the Scientific Committee during the development of their presentation, after their presentation has been accepted. The Scientific Committee member will be available to discuss options for presentation content and format, and potential audience questions, both prior to and during the conference. If you would like to have a Scientific Committee Member advisor, please contact Shelley Brundage or Sharon Millard.

ASHA CEUs will be available on select presentations. More details will follow when the programme is announced.
