Guidelines for Abstract Submission

Abstract Deadline has passed.

In recent years CIAP has received more abstracts than we have room to display. All abstracts will now be peer-reviewed by Steering Committee members according to the following criteria:

  1. Contribution to the field (e.g., enhances understanding of basic mechanisms, factors that affect patient performance with a cochlear implant, new approaches or methods)
  2. Quality of research (e.g., design, rigor, insightfulness)
  3. Subject matter: complementary to the program/important area not addressed by the program/provocative idea to present.
Accepted abstracts will be included in the Conference Program. Abstracts must be no longer than one page (when printed in Arial 12 point type with one-inch margins.) The abstract submission page has fields to accept the following information: Click here for an example of a formatted abstract from CIAP 2011.
