Abstract submission is now closed.


The below guidance has been provided to help you to prepare for your presentation. If you need any additional guidance, support is available by contacting strategyunit.tnc@nhs.net.

Poster Presentations


Posters are to be designed in A0 portrait. There are no further specific format or content restrictions, you have free reign over the design of your poster. You will be asked to present your poster during allotted times in the programme. 

Poster Printing

You can choose to print your poster in advance and bring it to the conference or use our internal printing service.

If you would like to use our internal printing service, your poster will be available to collect from the registration desk during the conference. The cost of printing is £60 and your poster will be printed on A0 canvas. Please email academic.conferences@contacts.bham.ac.uk to request this and we will send you the link for payment. The deadline for payment and sending your poster is 1st July.

Oral Presentations

Please bring your presentation to the conference on a USB and ensure you are in the room you are due to present in at least 10 minutes before the session begins to upload your presentation to the system. There will be an AV tech in the room to support with uploading this.

Short talks:

Short talk presentations are to be 13 mins, with 2 minutes for Q&A.

Long talks:

Long talk presentations are to be 25 minutes, with 5 minutes for Q&A.

Programme and Registration

The programme with allocated timings will be available w/c 22nd May. However as a rough guide, the conference is due to take place 09:00 – 17:00 on Tuesday 11 July and 09:00 – 16:00 on Wednesday 12 July.

If you have not already done so, please ensure the presenting author has registered for in-person attendance by Friday 19th May 2023, using the registration form here.

There will be no opportunity for virtual presenters so if no presenting author is registered by the deadline, your abstract will be removed from the programme.

Accepted abstracts that have news value may be selected for a potential media release to disseminate to relevant media outlets. If we believe your abstract has such potential, we will contact you to discuss this.  

Media releases and any other supporting materials would be prepared ahead of the conference presentation in collaboration with the presenter/s, who will have approval rights on the material prepared.

Media releases would be issued where possible under embargo, with the embargo lifting to coincide with the presentation date.

Please note that only a limited number of press releases can be produced and disseminated so we cannot guarantee that a press release will be produced. If your presentation is selected for a media release, you may decline the opportunity.
