Have you considered being part of the BAA Annual Conference 2019 by sharing some of your own research within the programme? If you are a BAA student member and your Abstract is accepted you will qualify for free registration to attend conference.

Check out our new SPARK talks taking place more informally in the Exhibition Hall Pods.

Why not consider presenting your own paper or poster. An integral part of the conference is always 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 you have a project or piece of work you have been working on that you would like to share, then why not consider submitting an abstract for presentation as a poster or an oral presentation.

If successful, your research could be displayed at the conference, or you could present it orally to audiologists from the UK and beyond. There will be over 500 delegates in attendance at the conference so this is the perfect opportunity to display your work.

Abstract submissions are now closed.

The British Academy of Audiology are calling for abstracts for posters and speakers at the BAA Conference in Liverpool 14th and 15th November 2019.

The submission categories are:

  • Clinical
  • Research
  • Education
  • Workforce
  • Service Innovation

There are 2 presentation options available:

  • Posters
  • Oral Paper
  • New for 2019 - SPARK talks in the BAA pod

Our SPARK talks are short 10 minute presentation slots in the BAA pod in the exhibition hall. BAA invite you to submit an abstract for the opportunity to share your work, ideas or thoughts in a more informal setting during the breaks in the programme. Have you discovered a new gadget that’s made a difference to your clinic? Do you have a project you need help recruiting for? Is there a question you want to debate with your peers? Do you want to start a network? Have you developed a new patient pathway? The SPARK talks are the place to share such things. Think of them as a cross between Speaker’s Corner/Dragon’s Den/Speed dating/Swap Shop* for all things Audiological.

*BAA will not be providing financial investment or ensuring you will find your life partner.
