Abstracts

Part of the conference programme is dedicated to selected abstracts to ensure that the best and most current research is presented.

Abstract submission deadline: Thursday 21 March 2024

Abstract Submission Guidelines

Once you have registered for the event, you can then submit your abstract via your online BSGCT account.

 

Make sure your abstract is submitted on time and in the right format by following these simple steps:

  • Your abstract should be no more than 250 words in length and should be in English.

  • Keep your title concise and informative and only use capital letters for the beginning of a sentence or for an acronym/name. Do not use CAPITAL LETTERS for your entire title.

  • The names of all authors associated with the abstract must be listed, and a presenting author must be identified.

  • All authors' names should be listed as initials and surname. Only the first letter of the surname should be capitalised, not the full surname (i.e. JR Smith, not JR SMITH).

  • Addresses should be in the following format: Group, Department/Institute, Organisation, Town/City, Postcode/Zip, Country.

  • Do not include acknowledgements in your abstracts – these will be included in your word count.

  • Select the subject area that best fits your abstract as this is a guide for reviewer allocation.

  • Please ensure that the email provided when submitting the abstract will still be valid in the lead up to and during the event as we will need to contact you about the outcome of your submission.

  • You must read and agree to the Abstract Submission Terms & Conditions before submitting your abstract.

Submission

What happens after you have submitted?
