BTOG’s position is as follows:

1. the abstract/poster must not have been previously published (in original or amended form)

2. with the exception of NLCFN (see above), an abstract/poster submitted/presented at another conference and then submitted to BTOG must contain additional information or data to the original and the previous submission/presentation must be declared on the submission.

Printed Poster Information: The maximum poster size is A0, in portrait format (posters over this size or in landscape format will not be displayed).   It is not possible to display landscape posters.  You or someone you nominate must register and attend BTOG 2018 to display your poster. To confirm that posters should be displayed for viewing on Thursday and Friday and that there is no formal poster judging/viewing session - poster presenters can stand at their poster during poster viewing (break) times if they wish to, although this is not compulsory.
