We are now inviting submission of poster abstracts to be considered for display at our Meningitis Research Foundation Conference 2021.
The Steering Committee will consider abstracts on any form of meningitis, sepsis, or associated infections, from a scientific or healthcare perspective, including prevention, diagnosis, recognition and treatment, health systems research, sequelae and their management, pathogenesis, pathophysiology, epidemiology, health economics, disease burden, immunology, or microbiology. Abstracts need to be submitted to one of the following categories:
1. Prevention and epidemic control
2. Diagnosis and treatment
3. Disease surveillance
4. Support and care for people affected by meningitis
5. Advocacy and engagement
If you are unsure which category your poster best fits under, please contact Liz Rodgers (email@example.com) to discuss this further.
Please submit your poster abstract on this form and e-mail it to Liz (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday 6th September 2021.
The abstracts should be written in English and the presenting author is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission.
Abstracts accepted will be published on the virtual conference platform and after the conference will also be made available on our website.
Instructions for preparation of posters will be sent together with the acceptance notification. Authors of the top fifteen abstracts will be invited to give a short (5 minute) oral presentation of their work at the conference. 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 (NB: the best poster prize will not necessarily be awarded to one of the poster presenters).
Presenting authors must be registered delegates. Booking will soon open on this conference webpage. 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.
