Here is your chance to get involved and help shape the educational program of the SCDM 2017 Annual Conference to take place September 24-27 in Orlando, FL! In preparation for the conference, over 20 session topics have been identified that:
  1. address best practices for core components of clinical Data Management
  2. serve as “hot topic” sessions that will provide the latest perspectives on key issues confronting our profession
With this Call for Abstracts, we are now looking for your input as participants in these sessions. Our goal is to provide our conference attendees with the best content possible for each and every one of these topics.

The 2017 Annual Conference Task Force invites the submission of abstracts under the following presentation formats:
  1. Oral presentations - the familiar presentation session consisting of three 20- to 25-minute speeches, followed by questions and discussion; Submissions will take the usual form of a description of the content of an eventual PowerPoint presentation.
  2. Panel discussions - experts in the field, who share facts, offer opinions and respond to audience questions either through questions curated by the moderator or taken from the audience directly. Submissions should consist of a description of how you could participate in and contribute to the topic under discussion.
  3. Roundtable presentations - extended discussion among a small group, the presenter will be giving and receiving targeted feedback, engaging in in-depth discussions, and meeting colleagues with similar interests. Submissions should consist of a description of how you could participate in and contribute to the topic under discussion.
  4. Poster presentations - structured but more creative visual presentation of one’s research and/or organizational processes presented on a 4’ x 8’ board. Submissions should include a summary of background/ problem information, primary objectives of the work, methods used to obtain and analyze the data, results or findings from your work, with a discussion and conclusion that will help others in their work.
