We invite all members of AAOM to submit Case Presentations and Scientific Presentations in the form of Poster Exhibits to be displayed during the length of the 35th Annual AAOM Conference in Clearwater, Florida, April 18-21st, 2018 in the hallways and exhibit halls.
We encourage all interested members to participate in these presentations and become active in AAOM and share your knowledge and experience and areas of interest.
The selection committee chooses submissions to be presented as posters such as single or multiple case studies, instrument reports with graphic material, clinical photographs, or concepts which lend themselves well to contemplation. We ask for interesting novel approaches to disease, new techniques, new instruments, scientific research, European and Latin American approaches to MSK/Regenerative Medicine, and so on.
Poster abstracts for Scientific Exhibits and Case Presentations may be submitted under the following categories:
The selection committee gives greater priority to novel work. Should your presentation not fit in an above category, you may still submit.
All abstracts and submissions will be reviewed by Dr Mahl, Director, Poster Exhibits Section and Program Committee in making the final decisions for presentation.
The title of an abstract may not exceed 120 characters.
Use title case when entering your abstract (both upper-and lowercase letters as appropriate). No special formatting is needed. Do not bold, underline or italicize the title.
Is the title descriptive of the abstract?
Does the title avoid gratuitous statements and irrelevant information?
Name(s) of author(s) and statements of affiliation are not allowed in the title or the abstract. give this information elsewhere.
Abstracts review is anonymous.
Purpose: Methods: Results: Conclusion:
The final abstract body should appear as one full paragraph with NO hard returns after each section.
When you write your abstract, ask yourself: is the abstract specific as possible? The following are frequently forgotten: sample size, study duration and follow-up, and descriptions of the novel and non-standard techniques used. Abstracts with statements such as "will be done," "will be studied," "will be underway," "will be analyzed," will not be selected.
The character count for the abstract body is 1000 characters – including spaces. This is approximately 120-150 words. Before submitting, did you proofread your abstract? Concise and clear abstracts are graded well. Misspellings and typographical errors reflect badly on the research. When using abbreviations within the abstract text, first include the complete term followed by the abbreviation in parenthesis.
Study Design - An explanation of study design is customary but not required.
Précis - Poster submissions require a Précis (460 characters) as part of the application. The Précis is a concise summary of the abstract and should not duplicate the conclusion. This text may be published and is for the use of the selection committee.
Poster submissions require a Background Statement (250 characters) as part of the application. This is an opportunity to relay additional information to the selection committee and should not be an exact duplication of the abstract text. The Background Statement is a succinct statement explaining the background of why this study was undertaken or reported. This text will not be published and is for the use of the selection committee.
