|2012 POSNA Call for Abstracts|
DEADLINE: OCTOBER 17, 2011
|The website is now open for submission of abstracts for consideration for the 2012 Annual meeting of the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America. Please follow this link to submit your abstract: http://www.posna.org/meetings/anmeet/2012AbstractSubmissionWeb.asp|
(if you are unable to click on this link, simply copy and paste this URL address into your internet browser).
Annual meeting presenters are no longer required to be POSNA or Alliance Member to submit/present at our annual meeting. The only restriction for non-members is that presenters must be a physician who is a practicing orthopedist (completed all post doctoral training) and who is Board Certified or Board Eligible in their country of practice (if such a board exists).
In order to submit an abstract for the Annual Meeting, you must have a Username/Customer ID#. If you are not a member of POSNA or if you have never attended an Annual Meeting or POSNA Course, please email email@example.com with your full name, mailing address, phone, fax and email and we will email you back with a customer ID#.
On behalf of the program committee, we look forward to receiving your submissions, allowing us to construct a program of the latest research and advances in our field. As in past years, we will have blinded grading of abstracts by the program committee and invited readers, and every paper will be reviewed by a minimum of 8 readers.
In an effort to be a leader amongst professional medical societies in addressing potential financial conflicts of interest we will again ask authors to report financial conflicts of interest using threshold ranges. We ask you to report any relationships you or your co-authors have had in the past 12 months with companies or institutions that are directly or indirectly related to your research. This will let us be compliant with the requirements for accreditation for CME credits, and more importantly will allow the program committee, and then our annual meeting audience, to consider this information in assessing the research.
