SIR calls for abstracts to be submitted for 2016 annual meeting



The Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) is accepting scientific abstracts covering all areas of vascular and nonvascular interventional radiology for its 41st Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held 2–7 April, 2016, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Online scientific abstract submission is open until 6 October.

Practicing experts, early career professionals, research scientists, clinical associates, trainees and medical students are invited to submit scientific abstracts for oral or poster presentation by 6 October. Researchers will have the opportunity to advance the field of image-guided interventions by sharing their basic science results, device and procedure innovations and clinical outcomes research at SIR 2016.

All selected scientific abstracts will be published in SIR’s flagship publication, the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, and on its website. Selected abstracts may be designated as “distinguished”, “featured” or “abstract of the year”.

Research awards to support travel are available through SIR Foundation for medical students, residents and fellows whose abstracts are accepted for oral presentation at SIR 2016. SIR’s International Scholarship program enables physicians (who are within 10 years of completion of training and who are practicing outside North America) an opportunity to train and learn at the meeting. SIR also offers two SIR 2016 scholarships for interventional radiologists-in-training: the SIR Medical Student Scholarship and SIR Resident-in-Training Scholarship.
