The theme for the BOA Virtual Congress 2020 is ‘Working Together’.

We are extremely pleased with the caliber and volume of abstract submissions we had for this year's virtual Congress. Topics ranged from General Orthopaedics, Education, Paediatrics, and new this year Developing World Orthopaedics and COVID-19. The highest scoring abstract posters will be published on this page in September.

An A0 Portrait PDF (841mm wide x 1189mm high) of your poster must be submitted to the BOA Events Team no later than Monday 14th September at Landscape posters will not work with our website and therefore will not be eligible to be displayed.  Please note, you are not required to print your poster.
