Call for Abstracts – Short Presentation and Discussion Sessions
Short presentations will include brief, pre-recorded one-minute presentations given by individual authors. These presentations will be available to all conference attendees, during the entire meeting.
These presentations will be followed by a virtual poster session. Each presenter will be assigned to a breakout room for ninety minutes. Attendees will enter and exit breakout rooms freely during the 90-minute session for live interactive poster session with the presenter.
Potential presenters will be accepted based on a peer-review of the submitted abstract. Abstracts must be two (2) pages or less in length and include two (2) figures or tables. Abstracts submitted by trainees, early career investigators and/or attendees that have not presented at ICVR before will be prioritized for acceptance.
Abstract submission is now open, with the deadline for submission on April 19, 2021.
Please submit your completed abstract via this link: ICVR 2021 Poster Abstracts (users must have a Google account)
Call for Proposals – Symposia
Symposia sessions will include presentations by 3 to 5 individual speakers that offer unique perspectives on a specific central theme relevant to our community of researchers and clinicians, followed by a moderated, interactive scientific exchange involving the audience. The symposium session should not exceed 1 hour and 45 minutes, and allow for sufficient time for the moderated discussion.
Symposia presentations will be chosen by the congress scientific committee with priority given to:
- topics that address novel or contentious issues
- bridge between basic and clinical fields
- include a diverse range of speakers that bring unique approaches or perspectives to the topic
- encourage in-depth discussion and debate between presenters and the audience
As interactive exchange is a critical component of the symposia, each symposium submission should include two stimulating questions to the audience as a starting point for the discussion.
Online applications for symposia proposals are now open, with the deadline for submission on April 19, 2021.
Please submit your completed proposal to ICVR 2021 Symposia Proposal Submissions
Symposia sessions will include presentations by 3 to 5 individual speakers that offer unique perspectives on a specific central theme, followed by a moderated, interactive scientific exchange involving the audience.
