View SOA23 Abstracts

The Intensive Care Society invites you to submit your work and present your research, audit, innovations, and clinical cases at SOA24, taking place 18-20 June 2024 at the ACC Liverpool. This is your chance to stimulate debate, share knowledge nationally and internationally, as well as enhance your own portfolio and presentation skills.

ePoster Display and Discussion

ePosters are an integral part of the congress programme. Successful authors will be given the opportunity to display their ePoster on large digital screens and present a 5-minute oral discussion followed by 2 minutes of questions in the exhibition hall during the congress. ePosters will also be displayed on the event platform throughout the congress and for up to 6 months on demand, enabling delegates to browse the posters and get in contact with authors. It is expected that presenters attend the full conference.

Oral Abstract Presentation

The top five abstracts will be shortlisted and authors given the opportunity to provide a 12-minute oral presentation (10 minute presentation, plus 2 minutes for questions and answers) in the main programme. These short presentations should discuss the abstract submission and draw attention to research highlights. Authors invited to give an oral presentation are not required to upload an ePoster

All abstracts will be published in the Journal of the Intensive Care Society (JICS) which is PubMed indexed.


All members of the multi-professional team - all professions, all grades, including all students.
