Poster Presentations

Students and Early Career Researchers are encouraged to submit poster presentations on their latest mental health related research.

Conference attendees will be able to view posters during the conference and selected submissions will be eligible for the IoMH and Audience Choice Poster Presentation Awards. Posters will be displayed in rooms B05 and B15 (opposite the lecture theatre). Please note, we will only have capacity to show 30 posters at the conference.

Successful poster submissions will get a free ticket to the conference. 

Content requirements

The submission should be a printed poster that conveys the information about the purpose, methods, results and conclusions of the research. All submissions should be focused on the science, instructive and non-promotional. Creativity is encouraged.

  • Recommended size is A0.
  • Please hang your poster at 9.00am on the day of the conference.
  • All poster boards will be organised by session and poster IDs. Please make sure you hang your poster in the correct place.
  • You will then have an opportunity to discuss your poster with delegates during 13:00 to 14:30, Wednesday 21st September 2022. Lunch will be provided to successful poster presenters.
  • If you would like to create a 5min accompanying video to support your poster, the IoMH will display these on our Youtube channel and share with delegates. You can find previous poster videos at IoMH 2020 Poster Presentations and IoMH 2021 Poster Presentations.

It is expected that the presenter will have obtained permission from all authors prior to submitting.

Submission process

Please submit a digital version of your poster along with a covering email detailing the presentation title, abstract and your full name, job title, confirmation of your early career status, your UCL Division/Institute affiliation and contact information.

We ask that applications are sent via email to iomh.info@ucl.ac.uk no later than 23:59 on 31 August 2022, from which the strongest 30 will be selected. 

A member of the team will then be in touch with you to let you know if your submission has been successful. The team reserves the right to select the most appropriate research posters for virtual display.
