Abstract & Scholarship Deadline Extended: Friday 22 April



With so much interest in abstract submission the committee have decided to extend the deadline to Friday 22 April 2016. This is fantastic news allowing more time to finalise abstracts and even better news for those who are only just considering submitting. This year's programme is shaping up to be one of the best so far with new research, leading international speakers and state-of-the-art lectures. Don't miss your opportunity to be a part of it, submit your abstract now!

Please ensure you refer to the abstract guidelines available on the conference website.

Step-by-step instructions, including submission guidelines and an abstract template are available for download both on the conference website and during the abstract submission process. However, if you require assistance or have any concerns about the abstract submission process please contact the conference secretariat at

Abstract Deadline: Friday 22 April 2016


With the decision to extend the abstract submission deadline the committee decided to also extend the scholarship application deadline to ensure as many opportunities are available to those who may need a helping hand to attend. There are two types of scholarships available, so make sure you check the criteria and apply to the one appropriate for you before the new deadline of Friday 22 April 2016.
