Call for Abstracts

Submit an Abstract

Dear Colleagues:

The 2017 Society for Pediatric Sedation® Conference will be held May 22-24 at the Buena Vista Palace Hotel and Spa in Lake Buena Vista, FL near Orlando.

As the science of Pediatric Procedural Sedation continues to advance, we invite you and/or your colleagues to submit abstracts on your work relating to Pediatric Procedural Sedation for consideration for presentation at the conference. Any health care professional (nurses, technicians, therapists, physicians, etc.) involved in the sedation process is invited to submit. Presentation formats will include both oral and poster sessions so please specify if one mode is preferred over the other. The deadline for abstract submission is March 1, 2017. Accepted abstracts will be reproduced in the meeting e-syllabus. Abstracts must not have been presented at previous SPS meetings unless they contain new/additional data not previously presented. Abstracts presented or scheduled for presentation at non-SPS venues are welcome. The presenting author must be registered for the conference to participate in abstract presentation. Submissions will only be accepted on-line via the SPS website.

Two Outstanding Abstract Awards will be presented. Eligible submissions must be presented by junior physician faculty (in practice for less than 5 years following training or physicians in training), or by non-physician health care professionals.

We look forward to your attendance and participation in the 2017 Society for Pediatric Sedation® Conference. We hope that you and your colleagues will join us.
