Presentation & Publications

Poster Presentations will be featured in the poster gallery, an exhibit providing a forum for a one on one, in-depth discussion using narrative and visual material to display and communicate the objectives, methods, results, and conclusions of a specific study. Use of visual material (such as photographs, charts, and diagrams) is very important. The Presenting Author, as the resource person or consultant, should be present at specified times on the days of presentation to engage in discussion with interested individuals.

Nuevo: ¡ahora los resúmenes se aceptarán en español!

Las presentaciones de pósteres se realizarán en la galería visual, una exhibición que permite tener un foro cara a cara y un debate detallado utilizando material visual y narrativo para mostrar y comunicar los objetivos, métodos, resultados y conclusiones de un estudio específico. El uso de material visual (como fotografías, gráficos y diagramas) es muy importante. El autor expositor, como el experto o consultor, debe estar presente en momentos específicos de los días de la presentación para que entable debates con las personas interesadas.

Abstract Content

The AAP and ISPRM encourage submissions that address these topics of interest.

Case Report Abstracts must be structured in the following four categories: Case Diagnosis, Case Description, Discussion, and Conclusions.

Research Study Abstracts must be structured to summarize the research objectives, design, results, and conclusions. Objectives should contain the background and purpose of the study. Design section should explain key methods, procedures, interventions, and any controls in the study - allowing the reader to infer limitations of the data. Abstracts containing statements such as ‘data to be presented’ or ‘the significance of the findings will be discussed’ are not acceptable. Conclusions should explain the meaning and importance of the results, and perhaps state any new questions identified.

  • Case Reports and Research Studies will be presented as posters.
  • Text in research study and case report abstracts must be limited to 300 words (text over 300 words will be disqualified).
  • Titles and section headings are not included in the 300-word count. Each of the four sections may include a maximum of 150 words.
  • All abstract text, including titles, must be submitted in English or Spanish.
  • References, Tables, and Figures may not be included in the abstract submission but may be included in the presentation.
  • The AAP accepts original research abstracts that have been presented at other medical and scientific meetings. Resubmissions will be evaluated on criteria relevant to the educational objectives of the AAP's Annual Meeting.
  • Do not include identifying author information or mention of any location or institution within the abstract text.

Submission Policies & Procedures

  • The final submitted abstract is the version that will be printed in journal supplements. ALL edits to the abstract content must be made prior to final submission.
  • Presenting authors are limited to one late-breaking poster. They may also have up to two posters that were submitted by the September 19, 2019 general abstract deadline.

Review Process

Late-breaking abstracts prepared according to the instructions and received by the AAP by 11:59pm EST on November 5, 2019 via online submission at www.physiatry.org/abstracts, will be independently peer-reviewed on a ‘blind evaluation’ basis. Only the abstract will be available to the reviewers for evaluation to determine merit for presentation.

The criteria for reviewing all abstracts include: scientific merit, relevance, originality, and clarity. Evidence of completion of the project (i.e. specific results data) should be included in the abstract. The educational value and extent to which significant information is presented will be considered. Professional and academic writing, spelling, and grammar will be considered in the judging process.

All authors will receive electronic notification (via email) indicating acceptance or rejection of the abstract(s) submitted in November 2019. No phone calls please. Following notification of acceptance, all authors will have one week to complete all author information and disclosures.

Statements made in presentations are the sole responsibility of the authors. Any statement made should not be viewed as, or representative of, any formal stance or position taken on any product, subject, or issue by ISPRM or the AAP.
