Abstract Submission Deadline: 15th February 2009

The Call for Abstracts is now closed.  A record number of abstracts was received this year and the Committee is delighted.  The results will be issued during week commencing 16th March.  Please contact the Secretariat if you have not received your result by E-Mail by Friday 20th March.  The full programme, including the free papers and discussed posters will be posted on the website shortly.

For this year’s Annual Scientific Meeting, we are particularly interested in abstracts being submitted which focus on our theme of Broadening Horizons. We would like to encourage discussion of areas which do not always fall within the mainstream of incontinence work. There will be themed paper sessions on neuropathy, basic sciences, motivational psychology, care of the elderly and faecal control as well as the sessions you would normally expect at the UKCS Conference.

Whether your work relates to a mainstream or an esoteric field we want UKCS 2009 in Swansea to provide an inspiring forum for discussion and learning. Papers may be either research or practice-based.
