Scientific Programme

The BMSS has adopted a prudent approach in developing the BMSS41 Annual Meeting Scientific Programme, as the Society cannot predict any residual COVID-19 regulations that may be in force in September 2021.


BMSS41 Meeting Summary
The Annual Meeting will feature a two day (one night) format incorporating 2x plenary lectures, 12x keynote lectures, 36x contributed talks, 30x flash oral presentations, 6x partner presentations, unlimited (digital-only) poster presentations, and an inclusive social evening.

BMSS41 COVID-19 Considerations
The Society has architected BMSS41 with provision for social distancing. The lecture theatres that we have contracted are generous and will facilitate COVID-19 social distancing if required in September 2021.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION IS NOW OPEN

 

BMSS41 Will Offer Three Options for Abstract Submission:


1. In-Person Oral Presentation: These will be traditional 20min oral presentations (15min + 5min Q&A). Presenters must be available to present in-person at Sheffield and by submitting your abstract you must consent to your oral presentation being recorded for ALL registered delegates to access on-line.

2. In-Person Flash Oral Presentation: These will be formatted as 5min + 4min Q&A and should comprise only a few slides. We strongly encourage early career researchers to submit abstracts for these presentations. You must be available and prepared to present in-person at Sheffield and by submitting your abstract you must consent to your oral presentation being recorded for ALL registered delegates to access on-line.

3. Digital-Only Poster Presentation: This format will offer an on-line alternative to traditional poster presentations. This option should be selected by anyone who does not wish to/cannot commit to attending in-person and have chosen instead to register for the digital only conference channel. Please note that ALL on-line posters will be available to both digital-only and in-person registered delegates.
