Message from Mr Petrarca:

I am keen to increase the number of presentation and poster prizes available to trainees in this region, so would encourage all trainees to submit a poster or presentation. 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,  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 2020 prize.
Same for the posters submitted (Standard board sizes)
Deadline for submissions, Sat 1st Feb 2020 6pm, the successful candidates will be notified 2 days later
