We are delighted to welcome you to the website for the 2017 BRS meeting and to act as your hosts during the meeting. We're proud to host the meeting in the lively city of Bristol. The venue for the meeting is the science centre At Bristol on the historic harbourside, which provides excellent meeting facilities in a central location. We hope you will be able to join us.
BRS meetings are renowned for their friendly atmosphere and networking opportunities, as well as their high quality and exciting science. The 2017 meeting will feature a broad-ranging programme with sessions on:
The microbiome and bone
HIV and bone
Physical activity and bone
Blood vessels and bone
Genetics of bone
Debate: Osteoporosis: Nature or Nurture?
Muscle and bone
Rare bone disease
As well as a dedicated New Investigator Session and - for the first time at BRS - a number of Meet the Professor sessions.
We are delighted that the Dent Award Lecture will be given by Lance Lanyon, who qualified from the University of Bristol in 1966 and has since gone on to become an outstanding figure in the field of veterinary science. We look forward to his lecture and award presentation.
We hope you will submit your work for inclusion in this exciting programme and look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

As well as dedicated oral communications sessions there will also be options to present during the symposia. Orals will generally be 10 minutes (7 for the presention and 3 for discussion).
For oral posters presenters will give a short presentation (7 minutes, 4 for the presentation and 3 for discussion; maximum 3 slides) and in addition will present a poster.
There will be dedicated sessions during each day when presenters will be asked to be at their boards to discuss their data with other delegates. Posters are size A0 maximum (841mm wide x 1189mm high) (portrait format).
Poster presenters are also invited to give a 90-second "pitch" to the audience in the lecture theatre (please indicate by ticking the relevant box on the abstract form if you are interested in doing this).
Clinical cases are normally 15 minutes (7 for the presentation and 8 for discussion).
Abstracts containing no data are unlikely to be accepted. You must include results in your abstract unless you are describing a clinical case.
BRS abstracts are marked under blinded conditions by a review panel on the basis of originality, scientific merit and significance. Reviewers do not score abstracts when there is a potential or actual conflict of interest. Submitted abstracts are primarily selected for oral/poster presentation on the basis of the scores achieved during the review process. The Organisers reserve the right to make minimal adjustments to the final programme in order to maintain a breadth and balance of interests in the programme.
