CINP are delighted to announce the opening of ‘Late Breaking Posters’ for the 2017 Prague Thematic Meeting.

The closing date for the submission of Late Breaking posters is Friday 7th July 2017. Please note that Late Breaking abstracts will not appear in the Programme & Abstract book for this meeting.



Late Breaking poster submitters are required to register at the time of poster submission. In the event that a poster is not accepted, submitters who do not wish to attend will be entitled to a full refund.

Please read the guidelines carefully before submitting your abstract.

Applicants should submit an abstract between 350 – 500 words (a maximum of 350 words if a table or figure is included). The text should be in Arial font, size 11 with single spacing and a word count included at the bottom of the document- this does not include the title, authors’ details or references. Three keywords for the poster must also be included in the online form. The name of the presenting author must be underlined and appear first in the list of authors.

When publishing reports of research, audit or practice related projects, journals usually follow an abstract structure as follows:

  • Brief introduction or background
  • Aims & objectives
  • Method
  • Results
  • Discussion & conclusion
  • References – use Harvard style, where each reference is numbered in order of use


Each abstract will be judged on objective evidence on the following criteria:

  •  Relevance to CINP
  • Standard of English
  • Objectivity of statement
  • Description of what was done
  • Suitability of methods to aims
  • Conclusions confirmed by objective results
  • Ethics
  • Scientific value
  • Potential clinical value
  • Originality of work
  • Overall impression
