ISS 2019 Issues Call for Papers

The International Seating Symposium (ISS) is inviting complex rehab technology clinicians and assistive technology professionals to submit abstracts on its 2019 theme: Bridging the Gap from Data to Value.

The University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Rehabilitation Science & Technology will host the event in March in its hometown. The ISS is seeking abstracts for one-hour courses; 4-hour pre-conference courses; 8-hour pre-conference courses; posters; and 15-minute paper sessions.

The deadline to submit abstracts is July 9.

In a June 18 news announcement, the ISS said it would give priority to proposals “on new and innovative topics that highlight evidence, outcomes, clinical applications, standards, and strategies to promote value-based interventions. Courses regarding neuromuscular disorders, spinal cord injury and diseases of the spinal cord, orthopedic disorders, systemic conditions, obesity, and polytrauma are preferred.”
