Oral Presentations

If your abstract is accepted as an oral presentation, you will present a short talk.

All submitted abstracts are reviewed by a panel including IPS Board Members, IPS SPC Members, IPS R&D Group Members and IPS Education Group Members. All abstracts are blind reviewed and the top scoring abstracts are put forward for an oral presentation. These abstracts are then reviewed by the IPS Scientific Committee and 12 abstracts are selected to be present at conference. Those selected to present an oral presentation will present as part of the conference programme. To view when oral paper sessions are taking place during conference, please view the programme.
