Prior to the symposium, the reviewers will select four abstracts for presentation during the plenary session of the first day of TraumaCare 2003. From among them, the audience will assist in selection of the winners of the three Scientific Awards.
Submitted abstracts will be assigned to the oral or poster presentation category by members of the Research Committee. In addition to the topics listed below, abstracts may describe a challenging or unusual case report. Abstracts on topics in the following general categories are requested:
In-Training Research Awards
- Perioperative stabilization
- Anesthetic preparation/induction

- Intraoperative anesthesia
- Postoperative critical care
- Pain management
- Critical care anesthesia/analgesia
- Clinical research involving issues of anesthesia

The two new In-Training Research Awards are for clinical research in traumatology for work that is, in the majority, conceptualized and written up by fellows , residents, or their equivalent in anesthesiology, critical care medicine, emergency medicine, or surgery. They are intended to encourage research endeavors and to provide a forum for participation of those in training.
Applicants for the In-Training Research Awards should use the same submission format as other scientific submissions. Applications for the In-Training Research Awards should be accompanied by a letter from the Department Chair or Director, confirming that the project was mostly conceived and conducted by a fellow, resident, or equivalent person in training.
Abstracts will be considered for awards and published in the TraumaCare Journal only if the presenting author has registered for the meeting, in advance, at the time of abstract submission.
The annual deadline for abstract submission is April 1. All abstracts must be submitted electronically and on paper via mail or fax (see Instructions for Abstract Submission ).
We look forward to your participation.
