Call for Presentations: Instructions
17th Annual Meeting
Thursday – Saturday, October 25 – 27, 2007
Presentations are invited for the 17th Annual Meeting of the International Association for Dance Medicine and Science (IADMS) on clinical dance medicine, dance medicine research, dance science, dance education, and general dance topics. Proposals must be submitted electronically and must be completed before March 1, 2007.
IADMS promotes medical, scientific, and educational activities aimed at enhancing the treatment and training of dancers with the ultimate goal of improving dancers’ health, well-being, and performance. We invite proposals for presentations that contribute to this purpose. You will be asked to explain the relevance of your presentation when you submit your proposal electronically, as well as when you make your presentation.
Several presentation formats are available. Please specify one format as your preferred choice. Since there are a limited number of spaces available, please specify, if possible, your second and third choices. Presenters must adhere to the specified time limits. Since interaction with the audience is a crucial part of IADMS meetings, additional time for questions and answers will be allotted following each lecture presentation. (Please understand that this discussion time is not additional time for your lecture!) For poster presentations, a block of time will be reserved during which presenters must be available at their poster to answer questions.
