The organising committee would like to invite all authors to submit an abstract for iPoster presentation at the International Congress 2016
There will be several large interactive display monitors throughout the venue and delegates will be able to select the iPoster they wish to view on demand
iPosters offer more knowledge transfer and better learning outcomes for delegates and presenters.
iPosters are much more than static paper or pdf posters - they are dynamic multimedia presentations that allow presenters to use hi resolution images, videos, slide shows, voice-over narrations and as much content space as they need to present their research with all the detail it deserves.
iPosters are much more likely to find a wider audience than traditional posters, since they are hosted online on a dedicated Conference iPosters’ website, and can all be searched and accessed at any time before, during and after the Conference.
iPosters can be amended at any point, even during / after the conference.
Delegates can communicate with presenters of iPosters at any time, not just during the poster sessions.
Voting and scoring functions can be added onto iPosters.
iPosters can be easily and quickly set up by presenters online in a standard format, but there is also scope for customisation.
No printing is required by presenters
The top 6 posters will be selected for 10 minute oral presentations as part of the main congress programme.
The following top 40 authors will be given the opportunity to defend their poster in a series of scheduled quick-fire poster sessions.
There will be no paper posters presented at the congress.
The deadline for poster submission is Monday 1 February 2016 (3pm). No submission will be accepted after this date.

Guide for authors
Abstracts must be in English. Abbreviations may be used only if they are defined (spelled out in full text at first mention) followed by abbreviation in brackets.
The abstract must not exceed 350 words including sub titles (see No 4) and formulas.
The abstract must not contain bibliographical references, tables, diagrams or appendices.
Abstracts on research must be presented in five headed paragraphs in the following order: Aims and hypothesis, Background, Methods, Results, and Conclusions (In CAPITALS).
Abstracts should present novel findings or new interpretations of existing data. They should include brief details of the rationale for the research and the methods used, including, if appropriate, the statistical approach. The major findings should be stated; it will not be acceptable, for example, to state merely that “the results will be discussed”.
The title of the abstract must be strictly coherent with the data included in the abstract and the conclusions must be warranted by information included in the results section.
Authors are encouraged to state their hypotheses and frame their conclusions accordingly.
For studies of service users, patients or populations, the number of people studied should be explicitly stated in the Methods section.
Submissions are accepted on the understanding that the work has been performed with the permission of any relevant ethical or legislative body. The authors should therefore ensure the work was conducted with appropriate ethical and governance safeguards.
All sources of financial sponsorship of the study should be stated at the end of the abstract.
Outstanding candidates may be asked to make an oral presentation at the International Congress.
