Present your research at the first International Conference for Vestibular Rehabilitation 

Thank you for taking the time to submit an application to present your research poster at the International Conference for Vestibular Rehabilitation. The aim of the poster session is to facilitate scholarly, clinical and research conversations that will advance the practice of vestibular rehabilitation.

In order to accommodate as many posters as possible, please be aware of the poster size requirements. The dimensions of the printed poster should be 3.5ft x 3.5ft (42 in X 42 in).  Posters will be on display during exhibit hall hours and evening receptions. Presenters will be assigned to an evening reception (Friday or Saturday) when they must be at their posters to discuss them with conference attendees. More information on the poster sessions will be available to accepted presenters. 

Posters may address:

Research Report
Research reports are presentations of original scientific data collected by the author(s). Any established research format, both experimental and non-experimental designs, may be used. Scientific research requires the design of a study, collection of samples, measurement of variables, analysis of data, and presentation of the results. Abstracts require presenter/author information including credentials, city, and state. Abstracts should include; Title, Background/Purpose/Hypothesis, Materials/Methods, Results Discussion and Conclusions.

Special Interest Report
Special interest reports are presentations of unique and innovative concepts, ideas, devices, or products developed to meet the special needs of physical therapy and Vestibular Rehabilitation. Emphasis should be on the unique and innovative nature of the concept or idea presented. All reports must contain data or evaluative information either collected or developed by the author(s) that address the idea, concept, device, or product presented. Reports that are limited to a “proposed” idea, concept, device, or product are not appropriate for submission and will not be allowed for presentation. Abstracts require presenter/author information including credentials, city, and state. Abstracts should include; Title, Purpose, Description, Summary of Use, and Importance to Vestibular Rehabilitation.

Case Study Report
Case studies describe an individual patient, uncommon clinical case or a new or improved method of management or treatment. Abstracts require presenter/author information including credentials, city, and state. Abstracts should include; Title, Background and Purpose, Case Descriptions, Results/Outcomes and Discussion/ conclusions.

Theory Report
Theory reports are presentations of a theory, idea, concept, or model that describes a foundation for the practice of physical therapy. “Theory is a general, abstract body of interrelated principles, concepts, and constructs that present a systematic, scientifically acceptable view of phenomena. Theory is conjecture that is inferred from a set of logical propositions that, in turn, are based on empirically derived evidence. Acceptable scientific theory is internally consistent, empirically testable, parsimonious, and congruous with existing knowledge. Theory also should be important scientifically.” (Krebs DE, Harris SR, Herdman SJ, Michels E. Theory in physical therapy. Phys Ther. 1986;66:661-662.)

Abstracts require presenter/author information including credentials, city, and state. Abstracts should include Title, Theory, Body and importance to Vestibular Rehabilitation.
