The PPTA Practice and Research Committee invites members to submit abstracts for research, case reports, and special interest reports for presentation at the PPTA MovePA Annual Conference Oct. 16-18, 2020, at the Kalahari Resort & Conference Center in Pocono, PA. Submitted abstracts will be peer reviewed for consideration for platform or poster presentations. Abstracts that have been submitted or presented at other conferences may be considered for the PPTA MovePA Annual Conference.
SPECIAL CONSIDERATION DUE TO COVID-19 CRISIS:
Abstracts with data collection in progress at the time of the submission deadline may be considered for acceptance and therefore, in some circumstances, research results do not need to be completed prior to abstract submission. Authors submitting abstracts should be confident that data will be collected, and analysis will be completed, prior to the conference presentation. The plan for data analysis and the anticipated timeline for study completion should be stated within the abstract. All abstracts accepted with pending analysis/results must confirm study completion with the PPTA Practice & Research Committee by September 15, 2020. Studies that cannot be completed by the September 15 deadline can be re-submitted in 2021 and will be given priority consideration.
Awards will be given for the best research, case report and special interest report abstracts.
In order to assist with the review process, we require that you strictly adhere to the posted guidelines for submission. Reviewers will closely assess for adherence to formatting guidelines, in addition to other stated criteria and standards. Download the PPTA Abstract Submission Guidelines.
The primary presenter must be both an APTA and PPTA member. The primary presenter is responsible for all communications to/from PPTA and for forwarding any communications to other researchers included in the study.
The Call for Abstracts closes on May 29, 2020, at 12:00 p.m. EST. All applicants will be notified of the outcome no later than Aug. 8, 2020.
