The programme committee is meeting in early September and we will be in contact with authors in mid-September with confirmation of the committee's decision.

Abstract Guidance
Your abstract title must not exceed 200 characters (including spaces) and your abstract must not exceed 1500 (excluding spaces). Please use sentence case, not block capitals.

You may include a table with your text, but graphs or other graphic elements will not be accepted, and should not be included in the abstract.

It is recommended the following headings be used when submitting abstracts:
•  Aims
•  Method
•  Results
•  Conclusions

An introduction should not be included unless essential.

If this is a 'case report' or 'point of technique' please state this in the title. Remember if it falls into this category, it may be better submitted as a poster.

Terms and conditions

The Programme Committee reserves the right to transfer any abstract to an alternative session if it considers this to be more appropriate.  

Copyright is assumed by BAPRAS for publication of the abstracts on their website. Whilst this does not preclude publication of the results in the form of a paper elsewhere, it is hoped that the authors will submit their work to the JPRAS for future publication when appropriate.

Acknowledgement
An electronic acknowledgement will be sent automatically on submission of your abstract. 

 If you do not receive this within a few hours of submitting the abstract, please check your junk mail. You can also view your successfully submitted abstracts via your online profile - go to bapras.meeting.org.uk/profile to view.

If you have any queries, please telephone the Secretariat on +44 (0)20 7831 5161 or email secretariat@bapras.org.uk.

Papers submitted incorrectly will NOT be considered. Papers withdrawn or not selected will not be automatically considered for the next Scientific Meeting, but may be resubmitted.

All correspondence regarding an abstract will be with the designated presenting author of the paper/poster indicated on the form. It is a requirement that all listed authors have agreed the final content of any submitted abstract.

President's Prize
Once again, we are accepting submissions for the 'President's Prize' session. Please complete the relevant section of the online abstract submission form.

The objective of this prize is to showcase and reward more clearly some of the outstanding research that has been undertaken by members of our training body.

The Prize session is open only to submissions that relate to research undertaken as part of a full time period away from training posts, and which are all, or in part, leading to submission for a higher degree of MS or PhD/DPhil standard (expressly not shorter MSc project material/dissertations). Succinct summary presentations of important novel findings will be welcomed, and the prize awarded (if an appropriate submission is delivered) for the most outstanding contribution to the advancement of surgical science related to the field of plastic, reconstructive, and aesthetic surgery.

The decision to accept papers for this session will be entirely at the discretion of the organising committee, and will be final and binding. Applicants for papers to be considered for this session are invited to send a short summary of their work, detailing where it has been based and over what period of study. Please submit this via the online abstract submission system.

The organising committee reserves the right not to award the Prize in any given year. The prize winner will receive a commemorative medal and free registration to a BAPRAS scientific meeting.
