at The Infection Prevention Conference 2020


Do you have a project or piece of work that you would like to share with your peers? Submitting an abstract at conference is an excellent means to communicate the outcomes of your research project with fellow practitioners, researchers and educationalists. Presenting will also support your personal development, showcase your skills and help grow your CV. Each year over 100 posters and 12 oral paper presentations are presented at conference from submissions covering the breadth of infection prevention topics. Last year there were 100 posters presented and 12 oral paper presentations at conference. Submissions open on the 13th February and close on the 12th June 2020.


Oral Presentations

If your abstract is accepted as an oral presentation, you will present a short 15 minute talk in front of an audience of your peers. To help you prepare your presentation, we have pulled together examples from previous winning oral presentations. These will demonstrate how to lay out your slides and how to achieve the best effect for presenting to an audience. These slides are for guidance only and should not be replicated. If you are new to presenting, don't worry - we are here to assist.

Poster Display

If your abstract is accepted as a poster, you will join many others in presenting a poster at the conference. We look forward to increasing the number of posters displayed each year. We encourage you to submit your abstract to contribute to educating and informing others. You will find three templates on the downloads page to assist you with completing your poster. These templates are only a guide; you do not have to use them.
