Interesting Cases & Poster Presentations

Annual BSGAR Meeting (virtual) 2-3rd February 2023

See below for details and requirements for BSGAR 2023 submissions of Interesting Cases and Poster Presentations at the 2023 BSGAR Virtual Annual Meeting.  The link to submit will follow soon.

Interesting Cases Session and Derrick Martin Prize

The session is one of the annual highlights of the BSGAR meeting and is usually heavily oversubscribed. The quality of submissions and presentations has always fantastic, and in 2023 we expect the Derrick Martin Prize to be as hotly contested as ever!

Please submit an abstract of your case as a three slide PowerPoint presentation using the following format:

  • Slide 1: Cover slide – case title, authors and affiliations
  • Slide 2: Text slide – case synopsis and final diagnosis (250 words maximum)
  • Slide 3: Figures slide – up to 4 annotated images

The best 10 cases submitted will be invited to present at the Annual Meeting on Friday 3rd February 2022 and offered publication on the BSGAR website. Accepted case authors will be asked to produce a 4-minute presentation, which will be prerecorded ahead of the meeting (full details will be provided after acceptance).

The Derrick Martin Prize will be awarded for the best interesting case presented by a trainee. The winner will receive a prize of £200 in John Lewis vouchers. The Interesting Cases Session is also open to Consultants, but they are not eligible for the Derrick Martin Prize.

e-Poster Presentations and Prizes

We were delighted with the feedback we received on the poster presentations, and these will continue into 2023.

  • We will accept abstract submissions from both Consultants and trainees, although Consultants are not eligible for the prizes. These might be audit and quality improvement projects, education projects, technical developments, scientific reports or educational exhibits.
