Abstract Submission

  1. The abstracts will be judged by members of the Scientific Committee and are assessed without knowledge of the authors or institutions. Assessment is helped enormously by clarity of thought in the abstract.
  2. Abstracts that do not conform to these guidelines will not be considered and will be returned to the sender to be resubmitted for presentation following amendments. The co-organisers and secretariat cannot be held responsible should the individual subsequently fail to meet the submission deadline.
  3. The work to be presented must be original and unpublished and should not have been presented at a national or international meeting. Encore abstracts can be submitted but must adhere to the following: the encore title and text of the abstract differ from previous versions and the original prior publication is declared.

Prizes & Publication

Prizes will be awarded for the best oral and poster presentations.

Abstracts accepted by the Scientific Committee for oral and poster presentation will be published in the British Journal of Dermatology.

Speakers must not present more than one talk. If you have more than one you must select an alternative presenter and inform the G2C secretariat of this change.

• Speakers should include a brief introduction, followed by their declaration of interests which should be visible to attendees (this is usually on a speaker’s first or second slide)

• All posters will be in an e-poster format and portrait in orientation.

• The file should be PDF, no larger than 10mb and will be uploaded by the submitting authors on the Oxford Abstract site.

• Deadline for submitting poster is 11th November.

Judging of the posters will be based on a combination of: Suitability of the subject for a poster display, original scientific information, teaching qualities and visual impact.

For uniformity and simplicity, it is best to arrange your poster in the following format:

* Introduction: a few brief sentences that state the purpose of the study

* Methods

* Results: illustrations, tables, figures, graphs and photos.

* Conclusions: a list or summary paragraph of conclusions.

Title, authors and institutional affiliation

* The heading should include the authors’ names and affiliations Tables, charts, drawings and illustrations, as required

* Type should be in a sans serif face (e.g. Arial) that is clear and precise. Do not use all capital letters.

* Headings – be consistent with headings, whether they are all capital letters, boldface or italicised.

* To help viewers follow the flow of ideas, number or letter each illustration and cue it into your text. Each chart or table should have a label or explanation.

Audio Clips

• Submitters with accepted papers are encouraged to submit a 2 minute audio clip to accompany their poster in an MP3 format.

Audio Clip Instructions

Please note the following before recording your audio clip:

• It can be up to 2 minutes long

•Although the maximum length of the clip is 2 minutes, there is no minimum, so the audio clip can be used at your discretion: it could be a summary of the e-poster, or it could also be used as a short introduction of the authoring team and contact details to discuss further. Please note that this clip will be available to all attendees so please ensure you are happy to give these contact details out (we would recommend an email, not a phone number).

How to record the audio clip

To record the audio clip, you can use any voice recording software. We would recommend two simple options that you are probably already familiar with and have access to, without downloading additional software:

1. You can use the voice recorder in your laptop/computer – most computers have a voice recording application. Simply click on the Start icon and type “Voice recorder” in the search bar.

2. You can also use the voice recorder on your smartphone.

When recording, please make sure you state your name and the poster presentation you are talking about at the start of the clip.

Please also ensure you are in quiet room without background noise, and speak loudly and clearly. If you have a headset with a microphone, we recommend using this for a better sound quality.
