Posters for the Orthopaedic Knee Conference 2019 are invited from researchers, developers and innovators working in the field of knee surgery.

Key topics of the one-day event include Training and development; Improving surgical and clinical outcomes; Soft tissue knee injuries and Developments in arthroplasty, so abtracts and posters should reflect these issues.

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.

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.
