Abstract and poster submissions

Posters for the Orthopaedic Knee Conference 2020 are invited from researchers, developers and innovators working in the field of knee surgery.

Poster displays offer a more informal setting in which to learn about a wide variety of research and clinical projects, providing an excellent opportunity for delegates to showcase their work and receive further recognition.


Poster Presentation Guidelines

Poster abstracts of no more than 400 words should be submitted by email to kate.dance@barkerbrooks.co.uk. Include your title, first name, surname, institution and poster title.

Images to accompany abstracts should be supplied separately and not embedded within the abstract document.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 28th August 2020.

After submission you will be acknowledged of the receipt of the abstract via an email.

We encourage you to send an informative abstract with a summary of the paper’s substance, including its background, purpose, methodology, results, and conclusion. The primary language of the conference is English, and your submission should be submitted in English.

Your abstract will undergo a peer review after its receipt. Acceptance or rejections of the paper will then be sent to you with any reviewer comments.

The acceptance of a poster submission assumes you are able to attend the free-to-attend conference on Friday 30 October 2020, and have registered.

Posters should be no larger than A1 size. You will need to bring your own Velcro tabs to attach your display materials to the boards.

Poster presenters will be responsible for putting up and removing their posters.

If you are selected to give a podium presentation too, you will give a 3-minute poster pitch as part of the conference programme.

Presenters should make themselves available during the conference break times for networking and providing additional detail for poster viewers.


Podium Presentation Guidelines

Once your poster abstract has been accepted you are invited to prepare a 3-minute oral presentation as part of the programme. Please take a minute to read through these guidelines, even if you are an experienced presenter.



We need to adhere to a very tight schedule, due to the number of speakers involved at the Conference.

Each presentation must last 3 minutes.

For your presentation, we recommend firstly introducing your topic, presenting the learning objective, describing the research process, and discussing the results, then finally concluding with your findings and recommendations and letting delegates know where they can find your poster.

We recommend presenters do not read from scripts, as this will undermine your delivery and impact. Slides should also be limited to key bullet-points.

You must send any slides in advance of the conference to mariah.hams@barkerbrooks.co.uk

Please do not defame or make derogatory remarks towards individuals, companies or products.



When presenting patient data (including photos), ensure you have informed consent from all participants.

Please declare any conflict of interest on your slides.

Do not use presentation time to acknowledge co-authors and collaborators.
