Judging for Poster Presentations + LHRD Poster Passports

London Health Research Day will once again feature a poster presentation competition. All submitted written abstracts will be evaluated in advance of the event. Following the selection of the top 40 abstracts for feature platform presentations, the next strongest abstracts (up to 150) will be selected for a poster presentation competition. Please review the updated rules and regulations for more details.

LHRD 2018 will also feature the “passport system.” The passport system, implemented last year, encourages all guests and participants to visit different posters, engage with the presenters and provide valuable feedback. Each participant presenting at LHRD 2018 can visit different posters in an attempt to fill a poster passport for the morning and afternoon sessions. Winners will be announced at the end of the day by random draw.
