Call for Posters

Submission is now closed.

We are inviting submissions for poster presentations at the ARMA Annual Conference to be held on 18 & 19 June 2024 in Brighton.


Anyone can submit an abstract; whether an ARMA member or non-member. Think of your abstract like a sales tool or elevator pitch. It is a brief summary of the content you will produce and an opportunity to demonstrate what you can bring to conference. It provides information for delegates to help them choose which content to view. Importantly, it is also the way the review panel decide which content is included in the programme and which isn’t.


The ‘best posters’ voted for by delegates and the chair of Conference Working Group respectively will each receive a certificate and one complimentary full conference ticket for ARMA 2025. Where there are multiple presenters, it is for the submitter/main poster presenter to determine how the prize is shared.

Call for Posters Opens: 11 December 2023
