Individual Abstract Submission Guidelines

Poster and oral presentations

Individual presentations are open to all the themes related to posture and gait research. The Scientific Content Committee encourage the ISPGR membership to share their most recent research results and try-and-errors at the World Congress.

Poster presentations are a great opportunity for researchers at all levels to present their work. Small studies, big study, controversial studies, negative studies (yes, they happen and they are ok to submit!). At ISPGR, we see poster presentations as an opportunity to present your work in a more ad hoc fashion. Delegates can view your poster at any time and it offers you, as the presenter, to take interested colleagues through your results with their specific interest at heart.

For early career researchers, ISPGR also offers a wide range of awards that come with some nice bit of pocket money. Check out our awards here (include link) – they include Aftab Patla Innovation Awards (basic & clinical) and Best Poster Awards for Post-doc.

With more than two hours a day devoted to poster sessions, the Scientific Content Committee are dedicated to highlighting the importance of face to face discussion and interaction among our international community. Poster sessions are the perfect way to facilitate dialogue and share results with colleagues from all over the world.

 

Poster Awards:

Awards including Aftab Patla Innovation Awards (basic & clinical) and Best Poster Awards for Post-doc will be selected from poster presentations. Visit the   Awards page for more...
