The SPARTAN Annual Symposium organizing committee invites trainees to submit an abstract to the annual symposium. The deadline for submission is February 28, 2024. All abstracts will be evaluated by members of the abstract selection committee. Scientifically sound abstracts with relevance to spondyloarthritis (basic, clinical or translational research) will be accepted for poster presentation. The highest ranked abstracts will be invited for oral presentations and receive a $1000 travel award for a future SpA meeting. The poster session opens at the Annual Meeting Welcome Reception (Thursday, May 16 from 5:30 to 7:00 pm)
Trainees include students, residents, fellows and postdocs. Results should not already have been published in a peer-reviewed journal. Abstracts presented at other meetings within one year are eligible for submission. Abstracts submitted to the SPARTAN Annual meeting may also be submitted to the ACR Annual Scientific meeting.
We are planning to meet in Cleveland for our annual meeting again May 16-18. The highest ranked abstracts will be presented in the scientific session. The remainder will be poster presentations. We will support travel and hotel for all trainees and poster submitters and expect attendance at all sessions of the SPARTAN Annual Meeting including the Spondyloarthritis Review Course on May 16.
The abstract limit is 2,750 characters, which excludes the title, names of authors or co-authors, affiliations, spacing and disclosures. A maximum of 3 figures or tables is allowed. Each table or graphic will decrease the character count by 250 characters from the total limit allowed. Additional instructions:
Any work with human or animal subjects reported in submitted abstracts must comply with the guiding principles for experimental procedures found in the Declaration of Helsinki of the World Medical Association.
