Call for Abstracts for the Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia
April 9th – 12th, 2017

Abstract should be sent by e-mail to: aosrenee@gmail.com with a copy to boes.christopher@mayo.edu and must be received by November 15, 2016. Abstracts submitted by e-mail will be acknowledged. Only one abstract per person is permitted. The abstract should be no longer than one page. It should begin with the complete title, the names of all co-authors, and the corresponding author’s mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address. This should be followed by a two to three sentence biographical sketch indicating how the author would like to be introduced. The text should provide sufficient information for the Program Committee to determine its merits and possible interest to the membership. The problem should be defined and the conclusions should be stated. Phrases such as “will be presented” should be avoided or kept to a minimum.

Three learning objectives should be given after the abstract. Each learning objective should begin with an active verb indicating what attendees should be able to do after the presentation (for example, “list,” “explain,” “discuss,” “examine,” “evaluate,” “define,” “contrast,” or “outline”; avoid noncommittal verbs such as “know,” “learn,” and “appreciate”). The learning objectives are required for Continuing Medical Education credit.

A cover letter should state: Whether any of the authors have a potential conflict-of-interest such as direct financial involvement in the topic being discussed during the presentation.

Standard audiovisual equipment that consists of a laptop computer and LCD projector will be provided if your abstract is selected for presentation. 

Each presenter will have a 20-minute time slot, which will be strictly enforced. Presenters should rehearse and time their papers to 15 minutes, in order to permit brief discussions and to be fair to the other speakers. 

Abstracts will be accepted by e-mail up until November 15, 2016.

Send with objectives and cover letter to: aosrenee@gmail.com with a copy to: boes.christopher@mayo.edu.

Please make submissions in Microsoft WORD format.
