We hope that you plan to submit a Poster/ Platform Abstract and to attend CSM 2020, February 12-15 in Denver, CO. Poster/Platform Abstracts are being accepted until July 12, 2019 at (http://www.apta.org/CSM/Submissions/). Please take the opportunity to share and discuss your work with colleagues at CSM and please follow the guidelines for Abstract submissions for presentation at CSM, including all sections requested and particularly to include data for research and other abstracts as appropriate.
The APTA has chosen to use a different site for abstract submissions this year. The abstract instructions provided on the online submission site have not indicated an abstract length limits. However, abstract length limits are necessary to assure thoughtful and efficient review of all submitted abstracts. Therefore, the AGPT Research Committee has assigned a limit for all poster and platform abstract submissions of 3,125 characters including spaces. This abstract length limit is the same character limit criteria used for CSM submissions in previous years. Thank you for your cooperation.
The Combined Sections Meeting is an excellent opportunity for soliciting feedback and creating a dialogue with colleagues regarding your current research. As the largest national conference in physical therapy, abstract submissions for presentation at CSM should be innovative, well-written, and contain data when appropriate.
All abstracts submitted to the Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapy for CSM are peer-reviewed and only the highest scoring abstracts are accepted for presentation as a platform or poster. In recent years, the number of abstracts submissions for CSM to AGPT has grown significantly. Be sure to review and follow all submission instructions.
The Research Committee has created a set of guidelines to assist in abstract preparation. These guidelines are geared toward writing a Research Report or a Case Study Report, but note that other types of abstracts are accepted for CSM (e.g. Special Interest Report, Theory Report).
