Cases of the Year Submissions

Call for Cases, Posters, & Junior Faculty/Fellows Forum Presentations
SPD 41st Annual Meeting
July 9-12, 2015
Boston, Massachusetts

Submission Deadline: May 16, 2015

Attendees are invited to submit case summaries and poster abstracts for review and selection to be presented during SPD’s 41st Annual Meeting. There are three categories:


Cases of the Year
This category includes cases with a known diagnosis. Cases should have attendant teaching value. You will have 4 minutes to present your case with a 2 minute discussion after the case presentation. Please note that if a submitted case is chosen to be presented as one of SPD’s “Cases of the Year,” it will not be simultaneously assigned a poster space. Submitted cases not chosen for a “Cases of the Year” oral presentation may be presented as a poster; however, SPD will give preferred assignment of space to research-oriented work.

Moderator: Rob Hayman, MD, SUNY-Stony Brook


Junior Faculty & Fellows Forum
This category includes basic science or clinical research projects which may include case series of clinical interest with accompanying literature reviews, which may have been conceived and/or conducted by pediatric dermatology fellows and/or junior faculty who have been out of training for five years or less.

Moderator: John Browning, MD, Baylor College of Medicine


Poster Presentations
Limited to 40 posters. Awards will be presented for the best posters. Dimensions of the poster are not to exceed 4’ x 8’.


Instructions for submission:

All cases and posters must be submitted online.

When submitting photos with your case, please submit jpeg files with file sizes under 2MB. The online system does not accept PowerPoint files. SPD will publish abstracts selected for presentation in meeting material and will use text as submitted. Please ensure that your text is correct when submitted. SPD is unable to make corrections. Please gather all materials before continuing.
