Call for Abstracts


Dear Colleagues:

The 2020 Society for Pediatric Sedation Conference will be held May 18-20 at the Sheraton Inner Harbor in Baltimore, MD.

As the science of Pediatric Procedural Sedation continues to advance, we invite you and/or your colleagues to submit abstracts on your work relating to Pediatric Procedural Sedation for consideration for presentation at the conference. Any health care professional (nurses, technicians, therapists, physicians, etc.) involved in the sedation process is invited to submit. Presentation formats will include both oral and poster sessions so please specify if one mode is preferred over the other. The deadline for abstract submission is March 16, 2020. Accepted abstracts will be available for viewing in the conference Mobile Meeting Guide. Abstracts must not have been presented at previous SPS meetings unless they contain new/additional data not previously presented. Abstracts presented or scheduled for presentation at non-SPS venues are welcome. The presenting author must be registered for the conference to participate in abstract presentation. Submissions will only be accepted on-line.

Outstanding Abstract Awards will be presented to those receiving top scores. Eligible submissions must be presented by junior physician faculty (in practice for less than 5 years following training or physicians in training), or by non-physician health care professionals. An award will also be presented for the Best Poster.

We look forward to your attendance and participation in the 2020 Society for Pediatric Sedation Conference. We hope that you and your colleagues will join us.
