The abstract submission deadline is January 31, 2019 at 11:59 EST. A higher priority will be placed on submissions that include participants from multiple countries or regions.
The Scientific Program Committee is currently looking for abstract submissions in the formats of:
- The Scientific Program Committee determines the presentation format of Scientific Presentations after review and selection. Scientific Presentations can be selected as either a free paper or poster (additional descriptions below). All abstracts that are accepted in this category will be published. Please note: Individuals may only present a maximum of two oral presentations.
Free Paper (podium presentation) – A seven-minute oral presentation held during one of the concurrent “Free Paper” sessions during the Annual Meeting.
Scientific Poster – If accepted, Scientific (and Demonstration) Poster Presenters will be required to submit their poster in 2 formats: a traditional paper poster (to be displayed on a bulletin board) as well as an ePoster. An ePoster is an electronic version of the traditional paper poster in PowerPoint and PDF format. It will be displayed on computer monitors at the Annual Meeting and posted on the AACPDM website for 2 months after the Annual Meeting. The dual display methods will increase exposure to the work and allow people to view the poster in the comfort of their hotel room or even at home after the meeting. Details will be sent to accepted presenters and posted on the AACPDM website.
- Instructional Courses are two hours in length, providing formal in-depth instruction for continuing professional education combined with audience participation and interaction. There is a strict 3,000 character count, including spaces, which will be imposed on the length of the body of the abstract.
- This 60-minute interactive session should include approximately 40 minutes for presentation of material and 20 minutes of interactive discussion with attendees. Attendance is limited to 50 people in order to encourage audience participation.
- The purpose of a Demonstration Poster is to showcase emerging ideas, generate discussion regarding service delivery models, highlight novel techniques and technologies; and/or advocacy efforts pertaining to the care of people with childhood-onset disabilities. Demonstration Posters can be used to highlight an upcoming funded clinical study, but scientific data and analyses are more appropriate for submission as a Scientific Presentation.
The 2019 Scientific Program Committee invites you to submit your work to be considered for the first ever combined 73rd AACPDM Annual and 2nd IAACD Triannual Meeting to be held in Anaheim, California from September 18-21, 2019.
