Extended Deadline Workshop Proposal Submission: August 31, 2016
Posters (Research and Clinical Innovation):
Deadline for late breaking poster abstract submission : March 15, 2017
The ISPP2017 Scientific Program Committee welcomes late-breaking abstracts reporting latest research findings and clinical innovations
for poster presentation at the 11th International Symposium on Pediatric Pain. All abstracts should be submitted through the online
system before March 15th 2017.
The 11th International Symposium on Pediatric Pain in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, is the biennial conference of the Special Interest Group on Pain in Childhood, International Association for the Study of Pain. It will create a forum for interdisciplinary participation and exchange in the areas of scientific discovery, knowledge translation, and advocacy regarding pediatric pain.
The IASP-SIG Pain in Childhood does not provide any remuneration for accepted Workshops or Poster abstracts. Each author who submits an abstract that is accepted is required to register for the conference.
Workshop organizers are encouraged to seek a range of speakers, including varied backgrounds and expertise. Proposals demonstrating a diverse panel will be given priority consideration. Each presenter may be involved in at most three workshops.
Two types of workshops will be organized: regular workshops and rapid workshops.
Regular workshops are 90 minutes long. Typically, a workshop will have up to 3 speakers, one of whom may be the Organizer / Chairperson. The Chairperson will introduce the session and speakers and actively support an audience-based participation/discussion. Regular workshops are to be interactive and should provide an update of the subject matter, including current controversies, via short presentations (20 – 23 minutes) and a floor discussion/question period of minimum 20 minutes.
Rapid workshops are 45 minutes long, and consist of at most 3 short presentations of 10 minutes each. Fifteen minutes should be reserved for questions/discussion (either in 5 min. slots after each talk or a 15 min. period at the end).
The workshop organizer will be asked to indicate whether they wish to be considered for a regular workshop, a rapid workshop, or both. The final decision on rapid versus regular will be made by the Scientific Program Committee.
Research Poster abstracts must describe original scientific material. An abstract that has been previously presented at any national or international meeting, or published as a result of such a meeting, is not eligible for presentation at the 11th International Symposium on Pediatric Pain. An individual may be first author and may present more than one poster at the meeting, so long as he or she is a listed author/presenter for each poster. Tables or illustrations may not be included in abstracts, but may appear on the poster if accepted for presentation.
The poster submitter will be asked to indicate if s/he is eligible for the Student Poster Award and wants to be considered for that award. Eligible are full-time trainees, less than 40 years of age, in any discipline, registered and studying in recognized university degree programs, internships, residencies, or fellowships.
Clinical Innovation abstract submissions describe new initiatives and/or achievements in pain treatment. These could include presentations of complex cases, new clinical services, program evaluations, or other innovations in delivering pain care. Each abstract (maximum 300 words, excluding authors) should succinctly describe the innovation. An abstract that has been previously presented at any national or international meeting, or published as a result of such a meeting, is not eligible for presentation at the 11th International Symposium on Pediatric Pain. An individual may be first author and may present more than one poster at the meeting, so long as he or she is a listed author/presenter for each poster. Tables or illustrations may not be included in abstracts, but may appear on the poster if accepted for presentation.
