Abstract Submission

Submission Details

The conference audience consists of researchers and academics from a range of universities and research groups. Therefore, we look for abstracts specifically aimed for a non-specialist audience. Please note that if your abstract is deemed incoherent or too technical, you may be contacted by the conference team and asked to make amendments.  You can submit your abstract for a poster or oral presentation.  Posters will be recorded prior to the conference and uploaded online with a live Q&A session; all presentations will be taking place live over zoom. 

Don’t think you have enough data to submit? We accept abstracts from researchers at all stages! We understand that the current pandemic may have resulted in many researchers to not have as much data as they would like but we would still like to hear from you!

Abstract submission deadline is 28th September 2020 at 17:00 GMT.  Remember, you need to register for the conference too!
