If your abstract has been selected for presentation at the 2006 Academy Annual Meeting, congratulations! You're among a select number of individuals chosen to present at this year's Annual Meeting. We've added this section to the website to assist you in preparing for an "exceptional O&P educational experience."
Please check the schedule for your presentation date and time.
In preparing your presentation materials please keep in mind that product endorsements or "commercials" are not acceptable presentations. The intent of the program is to provide specific, relevant clinical and scientific information to participants.
To ensure that the entire program reflects a professional appearance we ask that you assist us by providing the following information in a timely manner.
ALL PRESENTERS MUST:
1. Complete an Audio/Visual and Biographical Sketch Form and return it to the Academy Meetings Department by December 30, 2005. This information allows us to order the appropriate equipment for your presentation and provide appropriate introduction materials for your session moderator. Please review the enclosed Presenter Instructions.
2. Submit a paper on their program topic to be included in the Journal of Proceedings. The Journal of Proceedings will be available on CD-Rom and will be placed in each attendee's registration bag. Please follow the enclosed Guidelines for Contributions to the Journal of Proceedings to facilitate a uniform and professional appearance of all papers. All papers must be returned to the Academy by January 13, 2006 or they will not be included in the Journal of Proceedings CD-Rom.
Please consider the security of your presentation materials when participating in any education event. Laptop computers or any other audio/visual equipment should never be left unattended. Neither the hotel nor the Academy may be held responsible for the theft of equipment left unattended in an unsecured area. We stress this to insure that you are aware of the potential problems and to avoid the aggravation of having your equipment stolen.
