Abstract for a poster presentation.

You can submit an abstract (between 150-250 words) for a poster. The abstract will then be reviewed and you will be provided with feedback/comments.

On acceptance, please print one (A2) poster to be displayed for the duration of the conference AND bring a slide for a presentation slot of 5 minutes (3 minutes talk and 2 minutes questions).
