The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, University College London, UK Health Forum, and The Lancet invite abstract submissions for Public Health Science: A National Conference Dedicated to New Research in UK Public Health to be held on Nov 13, 2015. This year the conference is being held at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, London, UK.
Abstracts should be a maximum of 300 words, be written in English, and contain no references, tables, or figures. Submissions should include the following sections: background (including context and aim); methods; findings; and interpretation. Please also include a non-declamatory title (including a study descriptor—eg, randomised); names, titles, highest degrees, and affiliations of authors; postal and email addresses for the corresponding author; any funding received (if none, please state this); and a brief summary of the contributions of each author and any competing interests. Guidelines are available on The Lancet’s website. Reports of randomised trials should follow the CONSORT extension for abstracts.
Please submit your abstract as a Microsoft Word document to The Lancet’s online submission system. To submit your abstract go to http://ees.elsevier.com/thelancet/ stating in your covering letter that the submission is for the Public Health Science conference. The abstract submission deadline is June 23, 2015. After The Lancet peer-review process, participants will be informed of acceptance of abstracts for oral or poster presentation by Sept 4, 2015.
A draft programme will be published shortly. Conference bookings will open in July.
