Call for Research for 2015 Spring Symposium 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, April 30 at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

The deadline to submit abstracts is Friday, February 27. 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.

The Research Committee has changed its research abstract guidelines for 2015 and has also implemented a new 10-point scoring system. The new scoring process is designed to be a more objective and concrete system.

The updated abstract guidelines are:
• 300 word count limit
• Maximum of 1 table or figure
• Structure headings include Background, Objective, Design/Methods, Results, Conclusion and Impact (See Sample Layout included in the Research Abstract Submission Form).
