Call for poster and workshop abstracts

Interactive Posters

As part of the Veterinary Educational Symposium UK in Edinburgh this year we are hosting interactive poster sessions on both days of the conference (12th and 13th July). This will provide an opportunity to share experiences, discuss work in progress and highlight good practice and innovation in veterinary education and assessment.

This session will use an interactive format, which has proven very successful during each of the previous Veterinary Education Symposia in London and Nottingham. The session will involve:

  • A poster (A1 size) and portrait
  • A 2 minute presentation (while standing beside the poster board / a projection of the poster)
  • A couple of minutes for questions.


90 minute workshops will also run in parallel on both days of the conference. Workshops typically involve a short introduction or demonstration followed by group activities or brainstorming around a particular theme or topic.

If you would like to present an interactive poster or run a workshop, please email an abstract to which includes the following criteria:

  • The title of the proposed contribution and author name(s)
  • Whether the abstract is to be considered for poster or workshop
  • A 250 word abstract describing the interactive poster or workshop (either as free prose or subdivided into sections such as Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion)

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 27th April 2012. Refereeing of abstracts will be completed by 11th May 2012 and authors will be notified the following week.
