Annual Conference 2020 - Virtual

Abstracts deadline 20th July!

19th - 21st October 2020



Abstract submission - CLOSED


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.


The deadline for submissions has now passed and abstract committee are completing their reviews of all submissions. Authors will be notified of the outcomes of their submissions week beginning 24th August.

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).


 Abstract Guidelines




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.
