The George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences (GWSMHS) and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine welcome the submission of original research abstracts for poster presentations. The deadline for abstract submission is Friday, May 17, 2019.
Posters at ICNM 2019 will be featured throughout the conference with two specific showcase opportunities and serve as an excellent opportunity to take part in the discussion of evidence-based approaches to address current health care needs such as chronic diseases. Posters will be listed by presenting author name and title in the conference materials.
We welcome submissions from basic laboratory science to large epidemiological analysis focusing on the role of nutrition in medicine and health, and we do not accept posters based on animal research.
At least one abstract author must attend the conference for the poster to be displayed. Upon abstract acceptance, the presenting author will be eligible for a significant discount on the conference registration fee if they are a student or trainee.
All abstracts must be submitted in English with accurate grammar and spelling suitable for publication. Each abstract should be formatted as follows:
The abstract title should be entered in title case and be short and specific. The abstract title has a character limit of 150 characters not including spaces.
The abstract has a character limit of 2,000 characters not including spaces. Please proofread abstract submissions carefully as edits will not be made by ICNM staff. Abstracts will be taken verbatim using the text and information provided during this submission.
Objectives or Introduction
State the precise objective, the specific hypothesis to be tested, or both.
Provide a clear, concise description of specific methods, including research design. Describe interventions, if used.
Report the most important findings, including results of statistical analyses. Unless your abstract is focused on methods or protocols, all abstracts must include results. Results should include at least preliminary data. Abstracts without results will be rejected.
Summarize in 1 or 2 sentences the primary outcomes of the study, including their potential significance (avoid generalizations).
Funding sources (organizations, institutions, agencies) for the research included in the abstract should be listed. Grant numbers should not be included in the abstract body as this could impact the efficacy of a blinded abstract review process.
Optional: Supporting Tables, Images, Graphs
Please title all submissions as if submitting for publication.
Please enter at least three key words for your abstract separated by a semi-colon (;).
All abstracts will be peer-reviewed for quality assurance and considering the following: abstract components, significance, relevance to the conference, and writing quality. Notification of abstract acceptance will be e-mailed by June 1, 2019. Please make sure your e-mail settings will allow e-mails from email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure important program information gets through your spam filters.
