Annual Conference 2020 - Virtual

Abstracts deadline 20th July!

20th - 22nd October 2020



Abstract submission deadline 20th July.


After consultation with BASHH events teams and Bournemouth Colleagues, BASHH have taken the decision to run a virtual conference in October 2020. The conference will run from the 19th of October. The BASHH team have opted for these dates to avoid Glasgow 2020 and Autumn BHIVA. Details of conference scheduling and programme will follow. We will still be accepting abstracts, the closing date will be 20th July as previously advertised.

We have rescheduled Bournemouth Annual Conference to May 2021 and will post details in the future. BASHH conference organisers appreciate your understanding, we will update members as soon as we have confirmed information.


Abstracts of a maximum of 304 words (including headings) in the area of sexual health (including contraception) and HIV can be submitted for consideration of either oral or poster presentation up until 9am on 20th July 2020 using the link below. Undergraduate abstracts (where the undergraduate is the first author) are very welcome and there will be a specific oral session for these. Abstract guidelines are below for reference. Please note that abstracts that have been presented and published elsewhere will not be accepted.
BASHH will continue to offer scholarships for individuals with highly rated abstracts (see scholarship tab below).

The 2020

Programme is currently being developed. A draft programme will be available in the coming weeks. 



Bronze or silver scholarships will be awarded to accepted abstract authors by the scientific committee. Please note that you cannot apply for a scholarship directly. Scholarships will offer complimentary registration and a monetary value towards travel and accommodation. Successful applicants must be able to attend the entire conference. BASHH would like to thank ViiV Healthcare for their support of the 2020 BASHH scholarships through an educational grant.
