PMP 2017 Poster exhibition

Return to main PMP Conference 2017 page


**STOP PRESS**        28/06/2017:


Poster submission is now closed. We have received a higher number of submissions than expected, which is great news, but it means it will take longer than anticipated to review all of them. As a result, we have had to extend the deadline for notifying successful applicants, which was originally 30/06/2017. We will now notify all applicants by the middle of July 2017.


Abstracts accepted by the Scientific Programme Committee will be invited to either exhibit their poster throughout the Meeting or present in a plenary session. All accepted abstracts will be made available as a hard copy in the conference pack and electronically for members to download from the website at the conclusion of the conference.


This year we are trialling a new format for poster presentations, with an “Elevator Pitch” session where selected poster presenters will have the opportunity to give a 1 minute summary of the key points, using one slide, at the start of the poster session. The Elevator Pitch format can be very entertaining and is intended to boost subsequent attendance at the poster session. 

There will be three prizes awarded (in the form of vouchers): best oral presentation and best poster, as judged by the Scientific Programme Committee, and most popular poster as decided by conference delegates (we will use a sticker system, whereby each delegate is given two stickers to affix to their two favourite posters on display).

The deadline for abstract submission was Friday, 16th June 2017, and submission is now closed. Successful applicants will be notified no later than mid-July 2017. For any further information, please contact the Scientific Programme Committee at [email protected], or [email protected]
