Many cutting-edge abstracts that are first presented at SHM’s RIV sessions go on to be published in respected medical journals.

The competition features more than 1,700 applicants vying for approximately 1,200 poster spots. Plenary and oral abstract authors are chosen from the pool of submissions prior to the meeting and they are invited to present in sessions at SHM Converge.

Depending on the decision of the reviewers, your abstract could be selected for a poster, oral, or plenary presentation.

The SHM Converge Scientific Abstracts Competition will be completely virtual. Accepted abstracts will prepare an ePoster and audio presentation that will be displayed in an online gallery.
