22nd British Chapter ISMRM Postgraduate Symposium
Tuesday, 19 March 2013 from 08:00 to 19:00 (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
The Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging (CABI) at UCL is delighted to be hosting the 22nd British Chapter ISMRM Postgraduate symposium which will take place on Tuesday 19th March 2013. The symposium is aimed to provide a platform to promote the communication and collaboration within postgraduate students and early-career (up to three year) post-doctoral researchers in the field of magnetic resonance.
This year, we are going to do something different. Everyone who presents their work at this year's British Chapter ISMRM Postgraduate Symposium will be given a talk. Talks will fall into one of two categories:
1. Traditional presentations: 8 minutes + 2 minutes questions
2. Poster Pitches: 2 minutes + A0 poster.
The Poster Pitch is a two minute talk in which speakers can advertise their poster ahead of a traditional poster session. Speakers will give a quick-fire summary of their aim, main results and the importance of their work. There will be no questions: instead, audience members will make note of the most engaging Poster Pitches and seek them out afterwards.
This year's BC-ISMRM PG Symposium will be held at the Wellcome Collection in London. The museum is a mix of scientific exhibitions and modern art, often combining the two. Delegates will be encouraged to explore the Collection during the lunch break.
The Wellcome Collection is easily accessible by train and tube. Euston railway station is a few minutes walk away and King's Cross St. Pancras railway station is a 10 minute walk away.
Nearby tube stations include Euston, King's Cross St. Pancras, Euston Square, and Warren Street.
The Wellcome Collection full address is: 183 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BE, UK.
Registration will be open from 1st February 2013 through eventbrite: http://bcismrm-cabi.eventbrite.com/.
8 minute presentation followed by 2 minutes of questions. Conventional rules apply.
2 minute presentation + A0 poster.
Pitch: Speakers should present a maximum of 3 slides including a title slide. The presentation should tell the audience who you are, the aim of your work and your main result. Please remember to put your poster number on each of your slides. An example Poster Pitch slideshow can be downloaded here: Poster Pitch Example.
Poster: Posters must be A0 size (841 x 1189 mm) in a portrait orientation: this is very important otherwise your posters will extend beyond the edge of the poster board.
You will be given a Poster Number. Please put this at the top of your Poster Pitch and the poster itself.

The Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging, or ‘CABI’ as it is affectionately known, is a multidisciplinary research centre for experimental imaging. Prof Mark Lythgoe founded and directs the Centre, and it was officially opened in 2011. As well as conducting scientific research, we offer a wide range of educational and training opportunities to support the development of imaging, and have an active public engagement agenda.
