Symposia Abstracts | Now Open
Submission deadline: November 16th, 2020
Description: These sessions are intended to address issues in clinical practice, basic or translational science, and/or public policy. Priority for acceptance will be given to multidisciplinary proposals (e.g. including within the session two or more presentations each of which represents a different clinical discipline and/or basic science) in accordance with the CPS mission. We strongly encourage submitters to consider integrating people with lived experience as chairs, speakers or moderators in symposia. Symposia will be normally 75 - 90 minutes in length and should be interactive and encourage attendee participation when possible. Symposia will have no more than three speakers and a chair. The symposium Chair may be one of the three speakers or a fourth individual may act as chair.
Session organizers should include and integrate people from different career stages and perspectives including clinicians, researchers, a PWLE of pain, or trainees (although generally there should be no more than one trainee per symposium) as part of their submission. Sessions that consider unique formats such as panel discussion, case studies, debate and/or interviews are highly encouraged. Any individual may be involved in a maximum of two symposium submissions either as speaker and/or chair. Symposia should typically integrate work from multiple labs/clinics/institutions.
