Have your work published in the peer-reviewed medical journal Osteoporosis International, when you submit an abstract for our Osteoporosis Conference 2020.

As the UK’s largest osteoporosis and bone health event, our Osteoporosis Conference 2020 is the ideal event to showcase your research.

Individuals who submit their abstract online before the closing date of Friday 5 June 2020 will have their submissions viewed by a panel of experts, and a number of abstracts will be selected for oral or poster presentation at conference:

  • The top 15 will get an oral presentation slot (7 minutes)
  • The next best 20 abstracts will be given a premier poster position

All successful abstracts will be published in Osteoporosis International, and there will be awards for the top poster presentation. Submit your abstract.
