Call for Abstracts

The submission portal for posters/presentations will open May 16, with an abstract deadline of July 15.

The 2017 Pediatric Sleep Medicine conference seeks abstract submissions for both oral and/or poster presentations of research and educational endeavors.

Presentations will be given as follows:

  • Young Investigators Research Blitz: Saturday, November 4, 9:35-10:35 am 
  • Poster Presentations: Saturday, November 4, 3:00-4:00 pm
  • General Research Blitz: Sunday, November 5, 9:35-10:15 am 

The goals of the research blitzes and poster session are: (1) to provide the most current scientific findings focusing on pediatric sleep medicine, and (2) to provide an opportunity for individuals and institutions to share their own programs/innovations.

When submitting your abstract you may choose from the following options:

  1. Young Investigators Research Blitz and Poster Presentation: 
    Research abstracts from current trainees or researchers less than 5 years post-training will be considered in this group. Top-rated abstracts will be selected for a 5-minute presentation, with no time for Q & A
    . Young investigators selected to give an oral presentation will also be required to do a poster presentation.  
  2. General Research Blitz: 
    Top-rated abstracts will be selected for a 5-minute presentation, with no time for Q & A. 
    While not required, those selected for the general research presentations are encouraged to also do a poster presentation.
  3. Poster Presentation Only:
    The poster session will be held on Saturday, November 4. One author is expected to be physically present at the poster display to answer questions.

Note: Quality abstracts not selected for Young Investigator or General Research Blitzes will be asked to present a poster.
