Annual Meeting Cases and Posters

48th Annual Meeting
Cases of the Year & Poster Abstract Submission

The submission deadline has passed, and notification emails were sent to all submitters on May 30. If you did not receive yours, please email us.

Cases of the Year
Sam Weinberg's Cases of the Year segments include cases with a known diagnosis, diseases that were difficult to diagnose, or cases presenting management challenges. These cases should have attendant teaching value. Twenty cases will be selected for live presentation at the SPD's 48th Annual Meeting, to be held July 13-16 in Asheville, North Carolina. Case submissions are limited to three authors, and a CV for each author must be uploaded at the time of submission. (Additional contributors can be acknowledged on a slide at the end of the presentation.) Accompanying photos are required with case submissions, and the case summary character limit is 2,700 characters including spaces. A disclosure form will also be required for each author, per CME requirements. Accepted case presenters must submit slides for CME review prior to presentation, and register for the Annual Meeting. Cases will be blind reviewed; and while more than one case per institution can be accepted, a senior author is limited to one case acceptance. Accepted case authors will be required to submit their slides for CME review no later than June 6. Each case presentation should be no more than four minutes.

Poster Presentations
Research studies may be submitted as poster presentations. Accepted poster abstracts may be published in an upcoming issue of Pediatric Dermatology. Encore abstracts are acceptable, but please note on the submission form when/where they were published. Case submissions generally are more appropriate for the “Case of the Year” category. Cases that do not present new findings nor new opportunities for research will not be considered. Research studies should be relevant to pediatric dermatology. Multiple submissions for the same study are discouraged; any submission(s) beyond 3 for a single study will not be considered. The abstract character limit is 2,700 including spaces. Poster presenters must register for the Annual Meeting. There is no separate late-breaking abstract deadline. All abstracts must be received by the end of the day on April 18.

One $1,000 Travel Award sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Dermatology is available to dermatology residents or pediatric dermatology fellows who present a poster. To be considered, submissions must be high-quality abstracts focused on pediatric dermatology education, workforce, Medical Home, or collaboration with pediatrician partners. To apply for the award, select the checkbox at the time of submission. Once the final selections for presentation are made, AAP's Section on Dermatology will determine the winner.
