Submitted abstracts can be considered for three abstract competitions, with prizes available for each, under the following categories:
Postgraduate competition (including technicians, MSc, PhD students. Undergraduate students may also apply here)
Early Career competition (up to 6 years post-award of PhD or equivalent)
Mid-Career competition (7 years or more post-PhD or equivalent)


Those selected for the competition categories will give an oral presentation within the conference main programme. Final awards will be determined at the meeting based on the quality of the work and presentation.


Note for competitions and travel awards: the standard of abstracts submitted for consideration for competition sessions and travel awards was extremely high this year- awardees were selected based on abstract scoring and all award recipients have now been notified. There will be further opportunities to win awards within the poster sessions at the meeting for the best presentations!
