CRITERIA FOR ACCEPTANCE OF SUBMISSIONS

The BABCP Scientific Committee takes seriously its responsibility of organising the annual and Spring conferences.  The Spring Conference programme is entirely organised by the Scientific Committee and there is no submission process. The scientific committee convenes all the keynote addresses and a proportion of the workshops, clinical skills sessions, symposia and panel discussions for the annual conference. The remainder of the workshops, clinical skills sessions, symposia and panel discussions are open to submissions via the BABCP website. The criteria for deciding acceptance are:-

  1. Relevance: the proposed topic should be of relevance and interest to the BABCP membership
  2. Expertise: the proposed speaker should have recognised clinical and research expertise in the topic. Such expertise is decided in accordance with their research publications, experience of presenting and recognition as someone with a specialism in the clinical area.
  3. Clarity: aims of the presentation must be clear and coherent.

Keynote and workshop invitations are suggested by the stream leaders of the BABCP Scientific Committee and decided on collectively, are issued on the basis of the likelihood that the keynote speaker will attract large numbers of delegates, is a national/internationally recognised clinical or research expert in the topic, will fit well with the other keynote speakers and is willing to attend for the fee offered (which is relatively modest).
