Abstract submissions now open

Oral, poster and masterclass submissions

  • Abstract submissions open: 2 November 2020
  • Abstract submissions close: 25 October 2021

The IFOMPT 2022 Scientific Committee is calling for abstract submissions for a variety of presentation types, with each carrying equal weight/status.  Authors may request a specific format (e.g., oral, poster, masterclass) but the final decision will be at the discretion of the scientific committee.  Presentations in each session are on related topics.

All submissions must be submitted under one of the five key areas that constitute the conference theme, Innovate.Integrate.

  • Assessment and management: spinal
  • Assessment and management: upper and lower limb
  • Movement and neurosciences
  • Professional education
  • Professional issues

Submission types:

Classic platform (orals): platform presentations lasting 12 minutes each followed by 3 minutes question time. These sessions will be moderated by a Chair who will ensure fair play and good time keeping.

Rapid five: Rapid five sessions will consist of a series of platform presentations of five slides over five minutes followed by 15 minutes interactive discussion between delegates and the panel of presenters.

Poster: Posters can be of any design but must adhere to the size and orientation requirements. Posters will be displayed for one day during exhibition hours, and presenters will be allocated a slot when they are expected to be at their poster in order to answer delegates questions. Poster abstracts will carry equal weight in terms of publication in Musculoskeletal Science & Practice.

Masterclass: These are a longer platform presentation (30-60 minutes) with a focus on clinical issues and include a practical component.
