IPEG 2018 CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
You are invited to submit abstracts for oral presentations, video presentations, and 2 minute/2 slide snapshot presentations to IPEG’s 27th Annual Congress for Endosurgery in Children, being held April 11-14, 2018, in Seattle, Washington. This is a multi-discipline pediatric endosurgery congress, and abstracts of all pediatric endoscopic specialties are welcome. Authors may choose from the following categories:
- Basic Science
- Simulation-Based Education
- Single Site and/or NOTES
The Program Committee reserves the right to allocate the category of each accepted abstract in the final scientific program. The official language of the congress is English.
All abstract submissions MUST be submitted online. Authors may indicate their preference for presentation format on the submission form; the Program Committee will consider your preference. However, the final decision will rest with the Program Committee. Videos should focus on new aspects concerning operations, techniques and tricks. Submitted videos are for review only and will not be returned to the author. If your video is accepted for presentation, you will be required to bring a final copy of your video with you to the meeting. Video authors are encouraged to submit their videos to Videoscopy (http://www.videoscopy.com), the official video journal of IPEG. All Abstracts must be submitted in English.
We encourage everyone to submit an abstract, whether or not you are a member of IPEG.
Important Notice: The following Abstract Submission Policies will be firmly enforced:
- No Previously Published Submission: The abstract submitted must present original work that has not and will not be published or presented prior to the 2018 IPEG meeting. Abstracts should only be submitted if they or their main content will not have been previously accepted for publication, published (paper or electronic) or presented at a national or international meeting prior to the commencement of the IPEG Congress. Presentation at one of the following means that abstracts should not be submitted: BAPS, AAP, APSA, EUPSA, CAPS, PAPS, ISPR, AAPS, SAGES, WOFAPS. If abstracts have been presented at a meeting other than those listed (e.g. a national meeting or a meeting of another specialty), this MUST be declared so that the committee can make a decision
- No Previously Presented Data: All abstracts must be new and original content OR include at least 50% new data if previously presented at a meeting.
- Video Submissions: The Maximum length for videos is Five (5) Minutes. IPEG is not accepting 3D Video submissions. If your video is accepted for presentation at the 2018 IPEG meeting, you will be required to bring a final copy of your video with you to the meeting.
- ETHICAL: It is expected that the results section of the abstract represents original data by the authors, or a clearly stated systematic review/meta-analysis of the literature. IPEG considers plagiarism to be a serious breach of professional standards and authors found to have plagiarized the work of others can expect a ban and a report to their employing organization.
IPEG Policy on Employees of Commercial Interests
The ACCME states that an employee of a commercial interest may not serve as a planner or speaker for an accredited CME activity when the topic to be discussed is relevant to the products or services of the company. Therefore, IPEG’s CME Committee declares that no employees of a commercial interest may present in IPEG CME accredited activities when the topic is relevant. This policy is applicable to invited faculty, abstract presenters, video presenters and snapshot presenters. Faculty/speakers who serve on a commercial interest’s Board and who receive a salary will be considered an employee.
The IPEG CME Committee will determine if the topic to be discussed is relevant to the products or services of the company. Exceptions to the “no employee” policy may be granted by the IPEG CME Committee as long as the exception is in compliance with the ACCME’s policy.
