Blog: IFPP Abstract Submission Extension

April 3rd, 2017

Thanks to advice from our colleagues we have decided to extend the abstract submission deadline until June 1, 2017.  We understand this extension will help people plan for the next academic year and incorporate the IFPP Conference into their schedule.

Abstract submissions for the 11th International Forum on Pediatric Pain (IFPP) is open until June 1, 2017 Click here for the abstraction submission form or see our website for more conference details:

Submission of abstracts for poster presentation can relate to any aspect of pain in children and can be a work in progress, original data or theory, previously published data or theory, a topical review, or a clinical case.

Submission Guidelines:

  • 300 word limit
  • 12 point font
  • Word (.doc/x) or .pdf format
  • Include (as appropriate): Title; Authors; Author Affiliations; Author contact information; Objective; Design; Setting; Participants; Procedures; Measures; Results; Conclusions; References; Citation (if previously published).

 Abstracts will not be published, so presentation does not preclude submission to another meeting before or after IFPP.  Authors will be emailed notification of acceptance of their posters in early May. Early conference registration will be open shortly and will be announced when available.
