Poster Presentations / Paper Submission


The poster/paper review process is finished and all authors have been informed about acceptance/rejection of their contributions to RehabWeek. The four conferences have accepted a total of 569 poster presentations. We would like to thank all authors for their efforts in helping to make RehabWeek a great and very interactive event! We also want to thank all the numerous reviewers for their time and expertise!

Please find the poster presentation list below. Authors, please note that space between posters is limited and hence we set up the schedule so no two neighboring posters are presented at the same time. This should allow enough room for you to interact and discuss your posters with you audience. While you are welcome to stand in front of your posters at times other than those indicated, we kindly ask you to respect your neighbor’s poster schedule and to always give priority to those presenters who are scheduled for the respective session.

The British Society of Rehabilitation Medicine was delighted with the number of submissions for RehabWeek and wishes to thank all those on the adjudicating panel who each had 50 or more abstracts to assess, (even after a division of labour!).  The willingness of the panel to give freely of their time and expertise (in addition to their ‘day-jobs’),  is very much appreciated by the BSRM and will contribute to the success of RehabWeek 2017.  We wish to acknowledge our gratitude to all those involved. 

INRS Thank you!

The INRS organization committee would like to express our thanks to the below abstract reviewers. We truly appreciate their expertise and their time and efforts in helping to make the INRS a great conference!
