We are inviting postgraduates, PhD and postdoctoral researchers to submit an abstract for our Postgraduate and Early Career Symposium, which will take place on Tuesday, 4th April 2017.

The Symposium is designed to showcase as wide a range of alcohol-related research as possible and to encourage lively discussion among participants. To facilitate this, you are invited to present your work in a variety of formats:

  • Oral presentations of 15 minutes
  • 3-5 minute oral presentations
  • Poster presentations

You are welcome to apply for more than one format to demonstrate your work. However, applicants may decide that a 15-minute presentation would be more suitable for end of project work with detailed final results, while a shorter presentation of 3 to 5 minutes or a poster may provide a better format for ongoing projects. 

If you have a particularly innovative way that you’d like to present your work, please feel free to suggest it. We’re happy to consider a range of different formats.


 Please send an abstract of no more than 500 words, along with a title.

If you are submitting proposals for more than one presentation, please send an abstract for each. You may propose a number of formats for your presentation, in which case the conference committee will decide on which to accept. In order to support as many participants as possible, unsuccessful applicants for longer presentations may be invited to produce short presentations and/or posters.

The deadline for submissions is 12th December 2016
