Please specify any requirements


  • The ASM will take place in-person from 4-6 June 2024 in Nottingham.
  • Each parallel slot is 80 minutes long.
  • Typically, a parallel session will have 2-3 speakers and the organiser will be a speaker or a chair. Where chairs are not identified, we will appoint one from within the Scientific Programme Committee or Council.
  • This year, BPS ASM is offering a fixed amount of £600 to cover any expenses related to the ASM, such as travel and accommodation. The session organisers are allowed to distribute this amount according to their discretion. We aim to provide fair and flexible financial support, ensuring that everyone can participate comfortably, regardless of their location or specific needs.
  • The average of the accommodation fee is £115 single occupancy & £125 double occupancy per night.
  • Organisers will be entitled to receive a complimentary daily registration for the day which they will have their session. If the organizer would like to attend the whole meeting, the full registration price will be discounted.
  • Organisers should approach speakers/chair on the basis that at this stage it is only being considered for inclusion in the BPS ASM programme. If the proposal is accepted, the organiser is responsible for formally inviting the speakers and relaying the scheduling information when confirmed.
  • It is possible that based on the submissions received, we may request changes to some of the proposed speakers or titles.
  • Speakers should generally not be from a single clinical or academic unit.
  • Please ensure that your proposed session(s) are based on scientific or other academic literature.
  • Poorly completed forms and those missing information will be automatically rejected.

Please return your completed form to by Wednesday 29th November
