  • Call for Abstracts - GCMAS 2018 Meeting

    The Gait and Clinical Movement Society would like to invite you to participate in the 2018 GCMAS Annual Conference to be held May 22-25, 2018 at the Crowne Plaza-Downtown Indianapolis at Union Station, Indianapolis, IN. Abstracts in all areas of human movement analysis are welcome, and will be selected for the 2018 scientific program via a competitive, peer-review process.

    The 2018 Program Committee encourages submissions related to the following topics:
    • Clinical decision support for the diagnosis, treatment planning, and monitoring outcomes of patients with movement dysfunction
    • New tools and technologies for the study of movement
    • Advances in rehabilitation of patients with movement dysfunction
    • Function of muscles, bones, joints and other structures in health and disease
    • Clinical case studies


    The program committee is planning for two special sessions that will run concurrently with platform sessions. The special sessions will be called thematic poster sessions. Themes may naturally be formed by organizing submitted abstracts or intentionally chosen. Suggested themes for this conference are: update on utilization of multi-segment foot models, use of inertial sensors in clinical motion analysis, application of motion analysis in the management of post-ACL reconstructed knees, clinical motion analysis in the management of post-concussion testing.

    Guidelines for ALL Abstract Submissions:
    Abstracts are limited to two (2) pages and must be formatted as follows: The content of each page must be contained within a 160 mm X 225 mm (6.3" x 8.8") area. Text should be formatted as Times New Roman 12-pt font.

    Abstract reviews will not be blinded. Please submit only ONE abstract, a publication copy. The publication copy should include the title of the paper, the author(s), affiliation(s) and email address of the corresponding author. The name of the presenting author should be underlined. The presenting author listed on the abstract will be required to complete an online disclosure statement for CME/CEU accreditation. The link to this online disclosure will be sent out after abstract acceptance. See Specific Submission Instructions below for additional information. Submission is to be done through OpenConf, https://openconf.org/gcmas2018/openconf.php.

    Guidelines for Scientific Studies:
    Abstracts describing original research should be comprised of the following sections: Introduction, Clinical Significance, Methods, Results, Discussion, References, Acknowledgements, and Disclosure Statement. One or two figures may be used, but please ensure that the figures are legible when reduced to half size.

    Guidelines for New Tools and Techniques:
    Abstracts describing methodological advances should be comprised of the following sections: Introduction, Clinical Significance, Methods, Demonstration, Summary, References, Acknowledgements, and Disclosure Statement. One or two figures may be used, but please ensure that the figures are legible when reduced to half size. Abstracts should describe novel methods (i.e. devices or algorithms) that enhance our ability to visualize, measure, or analyze the mechanics, tendons, joints, and/or limb segments. Abstracts from vendors are encouraged, but must not contain advertising.

    Guidelines for Clinical Case Studies:
    Abstracts describing clinical case studies should be comprised of the following sections: Subject History, Clinical Data, Motion Data, Treatment Decisions and Indications, Outcome (if available) Summary, and Disclosure Statement. One or two figures may be used, but please ensure that the figures are legible when reduced to half size. Abstracts should illustrate the value of motion analysis and/or modeling in the evaluation, understanding, and/or treatment of a movement disorder. Priority will be given to studies that include pre- and post-treatment data.

    Learning Objectives:
    The abstract submission form will require authors to submit a one-sentence learning objective. The learning objective should be of the form: At the completion of this presentation, attendees will be able to (recognize, measure, explain,)

    Publication:
    Accepted abstracts will be included in the official conference proceedings and posted online prior to the meeting.

    Timeline:
    Deadline for Submission: December 17, 2017 11:59 pm EST
    Notification of Acceptance: February 2018
