Dear ICRS Member and ICRS2022 attendee,

Registration and Call for Abstracts for ICRS2022 in Galway, Ireland is open from Monday 3rd January 2022, with the following deadline dates:


ICRS2022
Oral Abstracts Submissions Due: Feb 14
Poster Abstracts Submissions Due: Mar 14
ICRS is HYBRID in 2022
Trainee Grant Application Due: Mar 14 Symposium: June 25 - 30

The intention currently is for ICRS2022 to run as a hybrid meeting, with options for delegates to attend and present in-person or virtually.

While our intention is for the majority of short oral and plenary talks to be delivered by delegates attending in-person, a minor proportion of short oral and plenary talks may be selected for presentation by delegates attending online/virtually, based on quality of abstracts and speaker preferences for in-person versus virtual attendance/presentation. You will be asked to select your preference for in-person versus virtual presentation during the abstract submission process.

Best wishes,

Prof. David Finn
President of ICRS

Accepted Abstracts – Presentation of Data:

Whereas last year's Symposium was fully virtual, we intend to retain some of the technical aspects of last year's virtual symposium and plan to hold a live, in-person Symposium in June of 2022 inasmuch as prevailing conditions and best safety practices allow.

Delegates unable to physically attend the Symposium in Galway will have access to all materials, posters, plenaries and oral presentations online – as well as all sponsor materials – via both synchronous and asynchronous technologies.

*All* oral and poster abstract submissions will be recorded either prior to or during the live conference and be made available to delegates during, and for a significant period of time after the end of, the live conference.

While our intention is for the majority of short oral and plenary talks to be delivered by delegates attending in-person, a minor proportion of short oral and plenary talks may be selected for presentation by delegates attending online/virtually, based on quality of abstracts and speaker preferences for in-person versus virtual attendance/presentation.

Thus, even if you are unable to attend physically/in-person, your presentation – if accepted by the ICRS Scientific Programme Committee for short oral presentation – may be integrated into the live programme during the Symposium as a pre-recording with live Q&A. All posters, irrespective of whether they are presented physically/in-person or not, will be made available on our online ICRS 2022 virtual platform during and after the live conference, with a facility/forum to ask and answer questions.

As such, would you prefer:

A. To attend and present your work (short oral or poster) in-person, physically in Galway

- OR -

B. To present your work (short oral or poster) online/virtually because you will NOT attend in-person in Galway
I prefer (*)  

Presentation Preference:

All ICRS2022 Symposium presentations are going to be either 12-15 minute oral presentations (live in-person+recorded or pre-recorded with live Q&A) or posters (live in-person+virtual or virtual only).

All novel abstracts submitted will be peer-reviewed by the ICRS Programme Committee. Because there are a finite number of oral berths, abstracts requesting oral presentations that do not make the cut will automatically be reviewed as posters. You do *not* need to submit twice.


* All abstracts received AFTER FEB 14 will be considered/reviewed as posters.

Select Your Presentation Preference (Oral, Poster, or No Preference):

Select Your Abstract File:

Click Browse below to select the file containing your abstract – .DOC, .DOCX, .RTF or .PAGES files only, please. *NO PDFs*

   



State any Conflicts of Interest:

A potential conflict of interest exists when there is involvement between the speaker/presenter with any for-profit commercial organization. This includes, but is not limited to, one or more of the following: Consultant, scientific advisory committee member, lecturer at industry-sponsored symposia/speaker's bureau, officer, board member, trustee, owner or employee for any for-profit firm from which income is derived.

THE FOLLOWING MUST BE SUBMITTED WITH YOUR ABSTRACT IN ORDER FOR IT TO BE CONSIDERED FOR PRESENTATION.

ABSTRACTS NOT COMPLYING WITH THE INFORMATION YOU'VE SUBMITTED BELOW WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.

Either

- No conflicts exist (write "none" in the box below),
or
- A conflict does exist.

To the best of my knowledge: (*)  

Nature of conflict (or "none"): (*)

I understand that it is necessary for any conflict to be identified openly at the beginning of my presentation, so that the audience may form their own judgments about the presentation with full disclosure of the facts of my presentation.
