Call for peer reviewers – Deadline 22 March 2019

We are recruiting peer reviewers to score platform and poster abstracts.

Here are just a few reasons why you should consider applying:

  • The review process helps organisers make informed decisions about content.
  • Peer review helps to ensure credible work is selected and improves the quality of the conference.
  • This is a good CPD opportunity giving reviewers the chance to analyse the work of others and to think critically about their own work as well as improving abstract writing skills.
  • Find out what others are doing in your field and contribute to the scientific community.

If you have experience reviewing abstracts and a track record of publications and / or presentations please complete the survey.
