Oral Presentations


The 2020 venue has modern audiovisual equipment but there are times when we are unable to connect personal laptops / tablets to the projector. For this reason, you must bring your presentation on a USB drive, or alternatively email your presentation to the EEOM secretary in advance.

Oral presentations are kept to 8 minutes duration. A good rule of thumb is to have about 1 slide per minute. Therefore your presentation shouldn't exceed 10 slides. Graphs/images are a good way to convey information and will keep the attention of the audience.

​Prizes will be awarded for best overall presentation, and best student or foundation doctor presentation, as scored by our judges.

Poster Presentations


Posters should be printed in A1 size, portrait orientation (594mm x 841mm). One way of doing this is to prepare your poster on Powerpoint. You can save the file as a PDF file and send to a printing company or local university or hospital printers. The cost to print on high quality paper is usually around £15-£25 but may be free if done at your hospital library. We will provide material to hang your poster which should be done during the registration.

​You should try to ensure that the title is clear and that the print is legible when read at 1-2 metres distance. The poster should elaborate on your abstract but be succinct enough to keep the viewer's attention. Images/diagrams are important to avoid large blocks of text.

​A prize will be awarded for the best poster, as scored by our judges
