Is there an abstract submission fee?

Yes - You will receive a discount code for US $50.00 off your registration fee and will need to register within 72 hours of acceptance notification in order to present your poster either virtually or in person.
Are there rules about previous presentation of data?
Encore presentations are permitted. All abstracts will undergo review by the Abstract Review Committee who will assess for scientific merit and novelty.

Is there an author limit for abstracts?
Is there a word limit or character count to which we should adhere?
700 words; 1 chart or graph is allowed

Are QR codes allowed on the posters?
Do you have any policy regarding the usage of brand names or trademarks in abstracts or posters?
Brand names or trademarks are not allowed - only generic names may be used.
Will you accept an abstract presenting only the study design?
It would be preferable if the abstract included the results/read outs; however, if they are not available at the time of submission but will be presented at the conference, that would be acceptable.
What are the Embargo Rules, if any?
• None for encores.
• For primary disclosures, scientific dissemination should be reserved until after the Conference. Press releases and media coverage are allowed in advance of the Conference.
Where will the abstracts be published?
All accepted abstracts will be published in the British Journal of Dermatology (BJD) as well as on the RAD Website. (Please note that BJD does not publish abstract charts or graphs.)
