The 22nd IMAST and 50th Annual Meeting & Course will be comprised of the latest science in the field, presented as paper (podium) presentations and E-Posters (Annual Meeting Only). Presenters will represent the best of the SRS membership, as well as non-members, from an international group of physicians and researchers. The Scientific Program and E-Posters will be selected by the IMAST and Annual Meeting Program Committees, based on a blinded review of submissions.
Who Should Attend
The 2015 IMAST and Annual Meeting & Course are open to anyone involved in the treatment of spinal deformities including spine surgeons, residents and fellows, physician assistants, nurses and other allied health professionals, and researchers. The presentations selected from over 1,600 submissions will provide valuable information to all individuals caring for patients with spinal deformities.
Online Abstract Submission
Abstracts for both meetings must be submitted online via the SRS website. Complete instructions for submission are available online. Abstracts may be submitted to either the 22nd IMAST, 50th Annual Meeting or to both meetings at the same time.
All abstracts must be submitted online by Sunday, February 1, 2014. No exceptions will be made.
All abstracts submitted will be reviewed and graded in blinded fashion by the IMAST and Annual Meeting Program Committees.
For Annual Meeting presentations, A MINIMUM (not average) two-year follow-up is required for all papers except those dealing with innovative methods. No patients with less than a two-year follow-up should be included in author data. Two-year follow-up is not required for papers submitted to IMAST.
Based upon abstract grading, those selected for the Annual Meeting will be assigned to a four-minute oral presentation or E-Poster and those selected for the IMAST meeting will be assigned to a four-minute oral presentation or two-minute oral point presentation. Due to time limitations, two-minute oral point presentations will be strictly limited to seven slides (title, introduction, methods, results (2), discussion, conclusion).
The review process takes approximately eight weeks, and acceptance notification will be made by email by approximately April 1, 2015 for IMAST and April 15, 2015 for the Annual Meeting.
