Abstract submission for the 2018 conference has now closed.
The Conference Organising Committee will meet in November 2017 to decide which abstracts will be accepted for presentation at the 2018 conference; authors will be informed of their abstract submission outcome by the end of December 2017. Authors who have not received confirmation by the end of December should contact Joanne McBratney, Hg3 Conferences at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are nine awards for which abstracts may be eligible.
Abstracts are automatically entered for award(s) using the 'Award criteria' section of the submission form. Abstracts can be considered for more than one award as long as they are eligible for entry.
All eligible abstracts are anonymously reviewed by a panel of markers invited by the Professional Conference Organising Committee for shortlisting. A panel of judges invited by the Professional Conference Organising Committee judges the presentations at the conference.
Shortlisted oral presentations are judged at the specific oral session for that award.
Shortlisted poster presentations are presented within specific facilitated poster sessions indicated within the conference programme. They will also be clearly marked within the poster area.
