SCIENTIFIC PAPER OR iPOSTER Abstracts

There is one application form for the Scientific Papers and iPosters.
Within the application please specify from the following options: Paper Only, Poster Only, or Both. 

Submission Deadline: February 5, 2018

PAPER ONLY - Please review the Submission Guidelines for Paper Presentation Abstracts.
By selecting this option, your proposal will only be reviewed by the Annual Meeting Program Committee for consideration as a presentation during a Clinical Paper Session. All accepted and rejected notifications will be sent in April 2018. 

POSTER ONLY - Please review the Submission Guidelines for iPoster Abstracts
By selecting this option, your proposal will only be reviewed by the Annual Meeting Scientific Displays Committee for consideration as an iPoster display. iPosters may also be selected as a Top 5 candidate which will be decided summer 2018. All accepted and rejected notifications will be sent in May 2018. 

Special notice: The Italian Society for Surgery of the Hand (SICM) has been announced as the 2018 International Guest Hand Society.  If an abstract is accepted as a poster presentation, and the primary author is listed as currently residing in Italy, the poster will be featured in the International Guest Hand Society e-poster group.  Italian authors are also encouraged to submit their poster abstracts directly through the International Guest Hand Society abstract submission form.

BOTH - If you select "Both" within the application, this indicates you would like your abstract to be reviewed as both a Scientific Paper and iPoster. Your abstract will first be reviewed by the Annual Meeting Program Committee for a Paper Presentation. If your abstract is not accepted as a Paper Presentation, your abstract will then be reviewed as an iPoster by the Annual Meeting Scientific Displays Committee.
