    Sub­mit a Poster

    For atten­dees inter­ested in sub­mit­ting a poster there are oppor­tu­ni­ties now avail­able. Your poster pre­sen­ta­tion will be located in the exhi­bi­tion room for two days along­side other posters from those work­ing at the fore­front of Genet­ics in Foren­sics Research.

    How to sub­mit your abstract

    We will require:

    • Poster title, Abstract (200 words or less)
      • Prin­ci­pal author, Organisation
      • Mail­ing address, Email, Tele­phone, Fax
      • Addi­tional authors

    In order to secure your board space a fee of £250 plus VAT will be required. The poster should be pre­sented as A0 (841mm x 1189mm) por­trait size.

    To take advan­tage of this oppor­tu­nity you need to be reg­is­tered as a paid del­e­gate over the 2 days. We have lim­ited spaces avail­able, so please reg­is­ter soon!
