Call for abstracts


Abstract submission has now closed.


Abstract reviewing

Abstracts are currently peer reviewed through a ‘blind’ reviewing process and prizes for best research will be awarded at the conference. One award will be provided for each category. Preference will be given to previously unpublished research.

Abstracts will be scored against the following criteria:

  • Innovation and impact.
  • Evidence of new knowledge, skills, techniques or improvements gained.
  • Clinical/Education/Research relevance.

Authors will be notified of the outcome of review by the end of March 2018.  If you have a query please contact or call +44 (0)1730 715 274.

Presentation and publishing

All successful abstracts must be presented at the conference (at an attended poster session), therefore at least one member of the team submitting the abstract will be expected to register and pay as a full delegate.

Abstracts may be published in print or online. By submitting an abstract, authors are agreeing to publication.
