You are invited to submit an abstract for consideration as a podium or poster presentation during the BAA Annual Conference in November.

An integral part of the conference is the free papers and posters. They provide the ideal opportunity for those working within the audiology field to share best practice, research and network with colleagues.

If successful, your research will be displayed at the conference, or you will be invited to present it orally to audiologists from the UK and beyond.

This is the perfect opportunity to share new knowledge and best practice.
