2012 poster competition presentationBack to the main information about the summer school.

As in previous years we will be running a peer-reviewed poster competition at our Student Summer School this year and abstract submissions are now open.

Posters must relate to the summer school topic of Dementia.

The aim of this competition is to encourage students to present research/results from audits and projects.


Poster prizes

Due to generous support from the University of Birmingham’s School of Medical and Dental Sciences Circle of Influence Alumni Fund generous cash prizes will be offered for 1st (£300), 2nd (£200) and 3rd places (£100). All students who display a poster will be awarded a certificate.

Abstract submissions

To enter abstracts of 150 words (not full posters) should be sent to:

Please ensure that abstracts fit the following format:

  • The theme that the poster falls under within the broad subject area of dementia
  • Context
  • Methodology
  • Outcomes
  • Conclusions

Submissions deadline: 5pm, 2nd August 2013

Please ensure that were relevant you have information your supervisor that you will be entering the poster competition and that all authors are appropriately acknowledged.

If your abstract is selected you’ll be invited to display your poster at the Summer School and to give a short oral presentation to the delegates during the lunch break on the first day. Please be prepared to answer questions about your research/poster as well.

The posters will be judged on:
  • The quality of the research
  • The quality of the presentation on the poster
  • The quality of the spoken presentation

Please note you will be expected to print and bring your poster to the event.

Poster dimensions

The final poster size should be A1. Due to the limited amount of display area only the best/most relevant posters will be selected.
