Call for Poster Abstracts
PAINWeek invites you to submit abstracts for posters to be presented at the PAINWeek 2013 national conference. Plan now to have your poster included!
More than 1,800 practitioners from across the country are gathering to foster solutions to the problem of inadequate pain control. To enrich the attendee experience, we offer poster sessions to share the latest information from current research and clinical findings with our attendees, who are practitioners on the front lines of pain management.
Abstracts may be research-oriented or evidence-based practice that are relevant to frontline practitioners who treat patients in pain.
The deadline for electronic submission is 5:00 pm Eastern, July 31, 2013. All authors will be notified via e-mail on or around August 15, 2013.

From Abstract to Poster

Poster Session and Reception
All author(s) or presenter(s) should be available at their posters for the poster session. The poster session is scheduled for Thursday, September 6, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm.
The review committee will choose 6 abstracts (posters) for oral presentations at the PAINWeek national conference. Date and time of oral presentations will be scheduled soon.
The PAINWeek late-breaking abstracts policy allows for the submission of late-breaking abstracts only for randomized phase III trials for which no preliminary data are available at the time of the abstract submission deadline (July 31, 2013), but for which a preplanned analysis of the primary endpoint is scheduled after that date but before August 20 (deadline for the final, updated late-breaking abstract). During abstract submission, you will be required to provide the date of planned analysis. The policy is not a mechanism to allow for updated data to be submitted later when preliminary data are available by the abstract submission deadline.
The electronic submission system will be available in March. Until the system is available, please email submissions to email@example.com.
