Fancy showcasing your work at this year’s RCPsych International Congress? Submit your abstract today!
21 January, 2022
Abstract submissions are now open for this year’s International Congress, which we are delighted to announce will be taking place in-person in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to showcase their poster at the Congress, or even present their work at one of our rapid-fire poster sessions. As per last year, we will also be publishing the original abstracts of the posters presented in a special online supplement of the BJPsych Open.
After an extended period of virtual interaction, this year’s Congress will provide you with the best opportunities to meet colleagues and delegates in-person, allowing for increased engagement and networking opportunities. We have also been hard at work redesigning the traditional poster hall and we can’t wait to welcome you to our brand new ePoster Hub!
Sitting at the very heart of the conference centre, the ePoster Hub will showcase all the accepted submissions on virtual screens, giving you the opportunity to browse through (literally) hundreds of posters showcasing the very latest in psychiatric research. Meeting up again in-person also gives you the opportunity to talk through your findings with your colleagues – why not take advantage of our presentation screens and book in your own Q+A session with all those interested? It is also a wonderful opportunity to enhance those presentation skills!
We can’t wait to show you what we have been working on! There really is no better time to submit that now! The deadline for submissions is Monday 7 February 2022.
Candidates accepted for rapid-fire will present in person, and any posters accepted will be displayed online and on screens at the venue.
