Call for Poster Abstracts - Deadline: October 23rd, 2017

We welcome the submission of scientific abstracts presenting original research as well as those that have been presented recently at other conferences for our moderated poster session and unmoderated poster display. We are also interested in receiving thought-provoking case reports from clinicians, and abstracts from young investigators and respirology fellows or trainees.

Awards

The ‘Breathing as One’ Inspiration Award is presented by The Lung Association. This is an open poster competition for the best poster highlighting a newsworthy Canadian discovery in either basic or clinical respiratory research and communicating that research to a lay audience.

The CRHP Research Poster Award competition is open to members of the Canadian Respiratory Health Professionals clinical assembly of the Canadian Thoracic Society.

Those who wish to be considered for either award must indicate their interest in the submission form.
