There will be one winner for the Top SOS Presentation Prize. Contributory prizes will also be awarded.

Message from SOS committee:

We are keen to increase the number of presentations available to trainees in this region, so would encourage all trainees to submit an abstract. This is a general interest meeting so a wide range of topics can be included – anything you have found interesting or unusual or just simply happy to talk about, has a chance.

The plan for the presentations is a rapid fire talk,  up to 5 mins max plus questions. The top few presentations will get prizes and the best of the meeting will get the main SOS 2024 prize.
