Oral and Poster submissions are being accepted under the following themes taken from the Manifesto :

1. Increase the systematic use of existing evidence

2. Make research evidence relevant, replicable and accessible to end users

3. Reduce questionable research practices, bias, and conflicts of interests

Accepted submissions will be published in the BMJ Evidence-Based Medicine journal.  A copy of the license to publish which requires a signature from the corresponding author can be downloaded HERE and when you make a submission.


Oral Presenter Instructions

Authors are allocated 15 minutes, ten plus five for questions.  Please keep to the time limit to ensure all presenters receive equal opportunity.

Room allocation, running order and Chairperson will be published in the print programme available at the registration desk.  Please note the running order is subject to change in case of any absences or if papers are better suited in a different order.

Using your own laptop is not a problem but can delay proceedings.  We will request that you present last to avoid eating into the session time.  Note, this could cut your own presentation time short.

Presentations will not be requested prior to the conference, please bring a copy with you on a USB stick for transferring onto the laptop already set up in the room.
Rooms will be open 30 minutes before each session for you to load (and run through) slides.
Clearly labeled presentations should be placed into a pre-named folder e.g. Monday July 15th 11 am on the desktop, a team member will be available to offer assistance if needed.

All computers will be wiped after the event.  Permission to keep a pdf copy of your presentation for adding to the EBM Live Archive will be requested by way of a form requiring a signature.  These forms will be on the lectern in each room.

A seat marked Reserved will be made available for you at the front row.  Please be in the room and prepared at least five minutes before the session is due to start.

Poster Presenter Instructions

Each poster must be on view up to and including the last break on Wednesday 17th July (lunch time).  Presenters should be available for the poster session during the drinks reception on Monday 15th (17:30).  Authors will be encouraged by a representative of CEBM and/or the BMJ to give a 1-2 minute summary of the major findings described in the poster.

The mounting board for each poster is 6′ high x 3′ wide (portrait) and can accommodate one A0 poster each side.

Poster boards will be numbered. Your poster number will be the number beside your title in the printed programme.  Velcro fastenings will be provided.

Posters can be sent ahead of the conference and the team is happy to have them in place for you when you arrive.  Please note we cannot be responsible for taking down any posters and returning them to the authors.

Please send any posters to arrive no later than Friday July 12th to –
