Call for entries now open

We are looking for interesting case reports or research presentations for our online pre-BSAVA Congress meeting, to be held on Wednesday 24th March 2021. Our goal is to allow more people an opportunity to share experiences with colleagues.

We would request all candidates record a three-minute poster pitch presentation and a digital poster.

Three-minute PowerPoint presentation

The three-minute presentation should made using Microsoft PowerPoint and recorded using Microsoft PowerPoint record narration function. Please use the SAMSoc PowerPoint template which is available to download here or from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

This presentation might involve offering results and the highlights of the poster, or a ‘teaser’ presentation, whereby information is given regarding the case report or research project but the main conclusions are not. A maximum of one title slide and three additional PowerPoint slides can be used during this presentation. We would encourage the use of illustrations/figures.

 

Digital posters

Posters can be in portrait or landscape orientation. The poster header should include title, author(s), and disclose any conflict of interest and details of funding.
