Beginning July 1, 2020, you will be able to upload your abstract or case to the site. No paper or disk submissions will be accepted. The abstract submission deadline is August 15, 2020 at 23:59 pm Eastern Time.
Please review the following Guidelines prior to beginning the submission process.
All abstracts will be reviewed by the PCICS Scientific Review Committee.
Abstracts may be accepted for podium presentation, moderated poster presentation, or standard poster presentation. All presentations will be expected to be on templates that will be provided at the time of abstract acceptance.
Podium Presentations will be in three sessions:
- Top Abstract Presentations
- Rapid Fire Abstract Presentations
- Cutting Edge/Highlighted Research
Poster presentations will be in two categories:
- Moderated Posters
- Standard Posters
Posters also will be available for review electronically on a weblink.
Abstracts are welcome from any academic area, including clinical science, basic science, population science, quality improvement, and education. Challenging case presentations may also be submitted using this same system with 6-12 accepted for a designated moderated poster session, which will allow for robust small group discussion.
Submissions are encouraged from all groups including trainees and allied health professionals. Authors will be asked to identify their profession (MD, RN, RT, PT etc.) and if they are new faculty/trainee.
Both abstracts and challenging cases may be submitted using this same system. You will be able to make a selection as to whether your submission is an abstract or a challenging case during the submission process. The word “abstract” is used throughout the system, but any instance of it also applies to challenging cases. Challenging cases have additional guidelines for submission that are detailed in the Challenging Cases section below.
The abstract submission process contains many steps. These steps should be completed in the order listed, although you can go back and edit information at any time. The steps do not have to be completed in one session.
- Abstract Info (title, topic area, and keywords)
- Author Info
- Author Info II
- Disclosure Statement (online form)

Cases could include any diagnostic conundrum or those that were challenging physiologically, technically or psychologically, and may or may not have had a successful outcome.
Cases will be presented in a supportive and positive environment with an emphasis on open discussion, debate and learning.
Cases should adhere to the abstract character limit (3000) with 300 characters for each image or table.
- Title of the clinical case should be in sentence case and limited to 10 words.
- Structure for the case submission will be:
Case report description
Discussion and Implications to clinical practice.
- Up to three images relevant to the case may be submitted.
- The identity of the patient within the text and images must be anonymized and no PHI should be included in any part of the case.

- All co-authors should be aware of the case presentation’s content before submission.
