Poster abstracts must conform to the following guidelines:

Contact for correspondence

Often a poster has several authors, the Society will correspond with the registered author, and it is the responsibility of this person to pass on any relevant information regarding the meeting to the intended presenter and/or other authors as necessary. Please note that to qualify for the oral trainee/student poster presentations the trainee/student must be listed as the main author.

Poster Abstract Submission Guidelines

Abstracts must include a Title, Background, Aims, Method, Results, and Conclusion.

The abstract will be submitted using the text boxes on the online submission form, the word counts are as follows;
Background -150 words,
Aims -50 words,
Methods -150 words,
Results -150 words,
Conclusion - 100 words.
Tables and Figures should not be included in the abstract, although they can be included in your poster at the exhibition. Please ensure that appropriate references and contact email addresses are included on your poster.

An individual can only be presenter/corresponding author for two posters, although they may be a named author on more posters

•Acceptance of Poster Abstracts

Each poster abstract will be assessed following the deadline of 10th December 2014 and only those accepted will be invited to exhibit at the Meeting. You will receive notification confirming whether your abstract has been accepted or declined in January.

• Reproduction of Poster Abstracts

• Preparation and Display of Posters

On notification of acceptance of your poster, you will be sent details of where and the timings your poster is to be displayed. The area for display on the poster boards is 2m high x 1m wide (portrait) and posters must be kept within these boundaries. The poster should identify the title of the paper and name the authors and their affiliations across the top. Text should be legible from 3ft and drawings and charts kept simple. Posters are fixed to the boards by Velcro fastening, which will be supplied.

• Trainee/Student Poster Prize Presentations

If the First Author and Presenter of the poster is a Trainee/Student, he/she may elect to be considered for the Poster Prize. Authors of the five best trainee/student abstracts will be invited to give a short oral presentation during the Poster Prize Presentation session on Wednesday. The prizes will be awarded based on the scientific merit and quality of the presentation by a panel of judges appointed by the Chair of the Scientific Programme Committee. Strict time limits will be applied for the oral presentations, with additional time allocated for questions from the judging panel. A list of the five selected trainee/student presentations will appear on the British Pain Society's website and in the Final Programme once they have been scheduled.
