Presentation instructions

Talks are 20 minutes long with an additional 5 minutes for questions. Please give your talk in PDF format to the conference team before your session, and definitely before the day of your talk. This can be done by either emailing your talk to before the conference begins, or by bringing your talk to the registration desk on a pen drive where we will upload it onto a laptop for you. Please name the PDF file of your talk with your name in the format firstname surname.pdf.


Poster instructions

Poster boards will be available in the atrium of the Wolfson Medical School building, and the poster sessions will be during the afternoon coffee break every day of the conference. Note, you will only display your poster at one of the three poster sessions, due to the number of posters being displayed. A list of which posters are in which session can be found in the scientific programme. Please make sure your posters are displayed by the lunch break on the day of your poster session, and are removed by the end of the day.



Free WI-FI will be available throughout the university conference venue. All delegates will be emailed their unique username and password for the GUvisitor network once they have registered. If you forget these details just ask one of our local organisers at the registration desk. Alternatively, eduroam is available throughout the university. See for details.


Meals and tea / coffee breaks

All lunches and tea / coffee breaks will be in the Atrium of the Wolfson Medical School building. If you have any dietary requirements or allergies then please mention this when you register for the conference.



There will be prizes for the best PhD student oral presentation and the best poster (open to students and non-students). Each delegate will receive a voting slip in their registration pack for each prize, and are asked to vote for their favourite in each category.  Once you have filled in your voting slips you can submit them to the conference registration desk. In the interests of fairness, please do not vote for somebody from the same institution as you.
