The Royal College of Psychiatrists is inviting poster submissions for our Eating Disorders psychiatry conference on 4-5 November 2021. All submissions will be reviewed ahead of the conference and successful authors will be invited to present their work as a poster.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists has strong values, and under its value of ‘Respect’ is committed to ‘promoting diversity and challenging inequality’. We welcome and encourage submissions from women and minority groups.

  3. The abstract must not contain bibliographical references, tables, diagrams or appendices. If accepted for presentation at the conference these can be added at a later date.
  4. Abstracts must be presented in five-headed paragraphs in the following order: Aims and hypothesis, Background, Methods, Results, and Conclusions.
  5. Submissions are accepted on the understanding that the work has been performed with the permission of any relevant ethical or legislative body. The authors should therefore ensure the work was conducted with appropriate ethical and governance safeguards.
