Call for Submissions for 2016 Research Showcase

ICEP is seeking submissions for the annual Statewide Research Showcase held at the Spring Symposium. This is ICEP’s only research presentation opportunity, so don’t miss your chance to submit and present at a regional meeting!

The Statewide Research Showcase is open to both residents and attending physicians to present oral and poster presentations of emergency medicine research.

ICEP is currently calling for submissions of abstracts from those interested in presenting their research at this year’s Symposium on Thursday, May 5 at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

The deadline to submit abstracts is Friday, March 4. The Research Committee will make selections and notify applicants in March. Traditionally, approximately 5 abstracts are selected for oral presentation and 10 abstracts for poster presentation.

Abstract guidelines and scoring system will remain the same as what was implemented in 2015, with one exception: The maximum word count for the abstract has been increased to 350 words (from 300).

All submitted abstracts are published in the Statewide Research Showcase eBook that is distributed with other meeting materials at the Spring Symposium.

All abstracts must be submitted electronically  to Lora Finucane at loraf@icep.org with the completed Abstract Submission Form. Abstracts must conform to the guidelines listed in the form in order to be considered. A blinded copy of the abstract must be included for judging purposes.
