The Royal College of Psychiatrists Faculty of Neuropsychiatry is inviting poster submissions for our online conference on 12-13 September, In-person London/Livestreamed. All submissions will be reviewed ahead of the conference and successful authors will then be invited to present their work as a online poster. Three posters will be selected for oral presentation on the day of the conference.


NB. All accepted applicants will need to pay and attend the conference in order to have their poster displayed. 

  • Abstracts must be in English. Abbreviations may be used only if they are defined (spelled out in full text at first mention) followed by abbreviation in brackets.
  • The abstract must not exceed 400 words including sub titles (see No 4) and formulas.
  • 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.
  • Abstracts must be presented in five headed paragraphs in the following order: Aims and hypothesis, Background, Methods, Results, and Conclusions and next steps.
  • Abstracts could present either novel findings or new interpretations of existing data; Quality Improvement or Education and Training projects, Research, Service Evaluation/Audit or Case Studies. 
  • They should include brief details of the rationale for the research and the methods used, including, if appropriate, the statistical approach. The major findings should be stated; it will not be acceptable, for example, to state merely that the "results will be discussed".
  • The title of the abstract must be clearly coherent with the data included in the abstract and the conclusions must be warranted by information included in the results section.
  • For studies of service users, patients or populations, the number of people studied should be explicitly stated in the methods section.
  • 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.
  • All sources of financial sponsorship of the study should be stated at the end of the abstract.
  • The committee would like to encourage proposals that present a diverse faculty including women, minority groups and patients and carers. Please read our speaker diversity policy before submitting your proposal.

The submission closing date is 12pm on 4 July 204.

NB: we are unable to accept late submissions.
