2023 ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting
Call for Proposals

For the upcoming 2023 ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting, the planning committee is looking to engage the membership with creative ideas for our scientific sessions. To this end, we are looking for multiple proposals for consideration. Opportunities are available for:

  • Plenary Sessions
  • Panels
  • Professional Development Workshops

The 2023 ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting will take place in-person on March 31 - April 2, 2023 at the Marriott LaJolla in San Diego, CA. If your proposal is accepted, you will be expected to register and attend the meeting in-person.

Extended! Deadline to submit: Wednesday, June 1, 2022

Plenary Description:
Plenary sessions are 30 minutes in length. A presenter should plan on giving a 20-minute presentation followed by 10 minutes for audience Q&A. All proposals will be considered, but there is high interest in innovative topics.

Panel Description:
Panels are 60 minutes in length. The goal of the panel should be to present and highlight new research relevant to significant problems or gaps in professional/clinical practice. Typically, there are 2-3 presenters (15-20 minutes each) with 15-20 minutes at the end for audience discussion and questions. During the question and answer period, the audience can engage with the panel regarding the implications of the data presented for practice; therefore, it is very important that ample time at the end is designated for Q&A.

Professional Development Workshop:
Workshops are 20 minutes in length. The goal of the workshop should be to engage attendees in an interactive learning experience in new concepts/topics and skill development relevant to professional/clinical practice. Workshops are often held concurrently, allowing attendees to pick 2 of 3 options, based on their interests.

Application Guidelines:

Please submit a short (less than 300 words) abstract with the following three sections:

  1. Proposed Title
  2. Name of Proposed Speaker(s) and Moderator (if a Panel Discussion)
  3. Summary of the Proposed Presentation
