Call for Poster Abstracts

Call for Poster Abstracts

We are again calling for abstracts for poster presentation at the Conference.  In previous years, the number of submissions has gently increased year on year.

All submissions are welcome.

We are particularly keen to hear from participants who are in training, but we are also interested in any submission of material which would be of interest to the other Conference participants. 

Posters will be viewed during all break times and there will be a specific Poster Session on Thursday 6 th September when the authors of the best 3 posters (decided in advance by the Committee) will be invited to make a short oral presentation on their posters.  A prize will be awarded at the Conference for the best presentation.
