Leading civilian UK centre of excellence for military health research

Submissions for this year’s Veterans’ Mental Health Conference poster session are now open. We invite all early career researchers (ECRs) researching the Armed Forces community (including research on serving personnel, veterans and their families) to submit an abstract for our poster session.

You are eligible to submit a poster abstract if you are either: a) a Masters’ student, or  b) a PhD student, or c) a recent doctoral graduate (completed your doctorate within the last 3 years).

Your abstract should be no more than 250 words and must include a funding statement (not included in the word count). Abstracts with no findings/preliminary findings will be considered if the findings will be confirmed by the time of the conference in March 2023. Please make this clear when you submit your abstract.

Selected abstracts will be allocated as either:

  • A traditional poster to be displayed for the duration of the conference; OR
  • An oral presentation which will take place in the afternoon of 7th March 2023. Presentations are to be 5 minutes long, with an additional 2-3 minutes for questions.

If your abstract is selected, you will need to purchase a ticket to attend the Veterans' Mental Health Conference on 7th March 2023. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased via the King's College London website. Please note, we are also hosting the FiMT Research Centre Conference on 8thMarch 2023, but you will not be expected to attend this.

All those who are selected for the ECR Showcase will be eligible to win a prize. There are 3 prizes available: 1) best display poster, 2) best oral presentation, and 3) best overall. Each winner will receive an e-voucher.

Please submit your abstracts to [email protected] by Monday 5th December 2022.

  • Your full name and institutional affiliation;
  • Whether you are a masters' student, PhD student or recent doctoral graduate (within last 3 years);
