Introduction

Researchers are only eligible to enter 1 prize in any given calendar year and should be members of BSODR. However, two winners each year from the Senior and Junior Colgate Prizes or the BSODR Poster Prize are eligible to be considered for the IADR Unilever Hatton Divisional Award and are funded to attend the next international meeting of the IADR to compete in the international Unilever Hatton awards.

The oral presentations should take place within a 15 minute time slot, please allocate 10 minutes for your presentation with the remainder for questions and discussion.
