This year we accept abstracts for oral and poster presentations. Please keep your abstracts within 300 words, excluding references.

Deadline for submission

Submissions should be made by the end of the day on Friday, 31st May .

What happens after the submission?

Once your abstract has been received by our conference committee, a team of fellow PGR students will review abstracts . We will send the notification of acceptance by 2nd September 2024.

In some cases, we may ask you to resubmit your abstract after you have addressed the feedback.

The team of reviewers reserve the right to make the final decision on your presentation type. We will do our best to consider your preference for either the oral or poster presentation. However, the decision will be solely based on the number of submissions and the conference timetable.
