The scientific committee will select the BEST ABSTRACT from those submitted. The winner will win a FREE place to the BACCN Conference 2021 in Belfast. Therefore, make sure you closely follow the guidelines to be in with a chance of winning!

Visit the Conference Resources to read guidelines, watch our first time presenter video and download electronic poster templates.

Once uploaded your abstract will be reviewed by our scientific committee and once all abstracts have been reviewed we will confirm if your paper has been accepted for the conference.

Poster Presentations

Following the success of the last few years we will once again be presenting posters in an electronic format at the conference. This saves the presenter time and money in preparing a paper copy and allows the poster to be sent electronically prior to the conference.

Poster abstracts still need to be submitted via the online abstract portal for review by the scientific committee.


The deadline for submitting your Abstract is Tuesday 30 June 2020.
