Visionary Call for Abstracts

The VSSO Research Committee invites scientific abstract submission for presentation in either oral podium or poster format at the Vth VSSO Scientific meeting. The closing date for abstract submission is September 16, 2019. Abstracts should be submitted using the attached forms by email to the VSSO Research Committee: VSSOResearch@gmail.com


Abstracts will be reviewed by members of the VSSO Research Committee and notification by email of acceptance and podium or poster presentation for accepted abstracts will be made by November 4, 2019. 


Please submit all submissions using MS word, times new roman font, size 12. Submissions should follow the format below. Titles should be written with capitalization of the first word only. Authors first initials last name (see example below). The body of the abstract must be no longer than 250 words (does not include the title, all authors, affiliations and references, if any). Abstracts can include one figure or table. Any abstract with “data to be presented” or some iteration of this will be refused unless circumstances have been discussed with the scientific abstract committee. Each author is fully responsible for the content of the abstract.


Podium presentations:

These will be 18-minute talks that are giving in the TED talk format

This means:

-Slides can be used but are not mandatory

-If you use slides, they should be minimal and should only be used to help describe something or make your point

-If you have slides, there should be no text (or minimal text)

-Rule of thumb – if the projector broke, your talk would not really change that much


Speakers that are selected will receive free conference registration. (If we select you after you have already paid, no worries, we will work it out.)
