The Committee will review the submitted abstracts and invite a selection of authors to deliver a short live FLASH presentation and Q&A during the conference.

The presentation will then also be available on-demand following the presentation.

On-Demand Presentations

On-Demand Presentations

Abstracts that are not selected for the live FLASH presentations will have the opportunity to submit a pre-recorded presentation which will be available on-demand during and following the conference.


Sadly the traditional face to face DDL Conference is unable to take place as previously planned due to the ongoing COVID19 pandemic.

However! The DDL Scientific Organising Committee will present a series of Christmas Lectures during the second week in December 2020.

Invited speakers will deliver live presentations on our virtual platform.  We are also inviting authors to submit abstracts for review by the scientific committee for additional live lectures, or for on-demand presentations.  The deadline to submit your abstract is Friday 25th September.

Alongside the live lectures and on-demand presentations, there will be a discussion forum and a networking room, to facilitate live chat relating to the lectures.

We look forward to bringing you more details about the programme and virtual platform once the abstract submission process has been completed in October.
