Abstract Submission Deadline: February 6, 2018
SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS: GENERAL GUIDELINES
Abstracts may be submitted for oral or poster presentations. The Congress Scientific Committee will determine whether abstracts will be accepted based on blind review. They will endeavor to schedule abstracts according to authors' preferences but reserve the right to decide on the final form of presentation.
Abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee on a rolling basis until the final abstract submission deadline. Abstract submitters can expect to receive notification regarding the acceptance of their abstract within 6 weeks of submission.
Abstracts may focus on:
- Fundamental research or clinical studies
- Literature review
- Case reports
Proposals for workshops or scientific sessions cannot be submitted through the abstract submission system. These proposals must be submitted through a separate system which will appear on the Congress website shortly.
Please note only the best abstracts will be published, based on the note obtained during the review process. Further, only part of the abstracts will be published in a supplementary issue of "Annals of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation", as well as in the JISPRM.
Abstracts must be submitted via the website only. Only abstracts submitted via the online submission form will be sent to the Abstract Review Committee for review. Abstracts submitted by fax or e-mail will not be accepted.
Please do not submit multiple copies of the same abstract.
Please note that there are no limits on the number of abstracts which can be submitted, however, each individual will be selected to present a maximum of two presentations (either Oral or Poster presentation).
A confirmation email will be sent to you when your abstract has been received. Please refer to your abstract by number, title and presenting author in all correspondence regarding the abstract. Abstracts cannot be modified in any way once submitted and it is the submitters' responsibility to ensure that all information is accurate. The Scientific Committee reserves the right to edit all submitted abstracts for grammar and spelling.
Please contact the Secretariat if you submitted an abstract but did not receive confirmation that it had been received.
Abstracts must be submitted in English.
Conflicts of Interest / Disclosure: Work submitted for presentation must include an acknowledgment of funding sources of commercial nature and/or consulting or holding of significant equity in a company that could be affected by the results of the study.
