You are invited to submit a poster abstract to be considered for display at our 2017 conference.

The Steering Committee will consider abstracts on any form of meningitis, sepsis, or associated infections, from a scientific or healthcare perspective, including prevention, diagnosis, management, outcome, pathophysiology, epidemiology, health economics, immunology, or microbiology.

Deadline for the submission of poster abstracts: 25 September 2017

Participants who would like to present a poster must submit an abstract for consideration by the Steering Committee using the form available on the conference website. The abstracts should be written in English. The presenting author is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission.

Please submit your poster abstract on this form and then send it via e-mail to Liz Rodgers  

Abstracts accepted will be published in the Conference Programme App and on the website. Instructions for preparation of posters will be sent together with the acceptance notification.

All authors of accepted abstracts will be asked to send in a pdf/powerpoint copy of their poster before the conference for consideration by the Steering Committee, who will award a prize for the best poster. Presenters of the top five posters will also have the opportunity to give a short (5 minute) oral presentation of their work.

Presenting authors must be registered delegates. There is a discount for junior trainees (below the grade of specialty registrar) nurses, post-docs and those residing for more than 60% of the year in countries classified with low income and lower-middle income economies.
