Yes. You may add up to one table to your submission. Tables will appear at the end of your abstract, both on the proof and for publication; tables cannot be placed within the text of the submission. Only characters will count toward your total character count; spaces and borders do not count.
Late-breaking abstract submission requests will be approved on a case-by-case basis. If you have research that constitutes late-breaking data that will not be available by the September 24 deadline please contact the SIR office to submit your intent for approval at email@example.com. Late-Breaking submissions will only be accepted as oral presentations. The Late-breaking submission will open in December and the deadline is in early January 2021.
Your abstract must first be submitted and accepted for poster presentation before your poster is submitted. Poster instructions will be provided after abstract acceptance.
There are two types of abstract submission: Original Scientific Research and Educational Exhibit.
Original Scientific Research: A structured abstract is required and should be organized into the following four paragraphs:
Materials and Methods
For further details, refer to the Instructions for Authors at JVIR.org.
Abstracts accepted as original scientific research will be selected for either an oral presentation or an e-poster. Authors who feel that their research is best presented as a poster must designate a presentation preference of "Poster Only" when they submit their abstract. Original Scientific Research posters will be presented as either a traditional paper poster or as an electronic ePoster.
Educational Exhibit: Intended for educational exhibits that highlight a technique, concept or subject, rather than hypothesis-driven research. Material in this category is not suited for presentation as a scientific abstract. Examples include review of a topic, "how-to" demonstrations and pictorial essays. A structured, 4-part abstract is required with the format:
Clinical Findings/Procedure Details
Conclusion and/or Teaching Points
Abstracts accepted as educational exhibits will be presented as posters in the traditional hard-copy format or in an electonic ePoster format.
The submitting author must verify at the time of submission that the material is his/her own and that it will not have been published as a manuscript prior to presentation at the SIR Annual Scientific Meeting. Updates or follow-ups of previously published or presented work are acceptable.
Due to the increase in number of qualified abstract submissions, SIR has increased the overall acceptance rate. However not all accepted abstracts will be published in the Annual Meeting supplement to JVIR. In keeping with the mission of JVIR, only original scientific abstracts, both oral and ePoster, will be published in the JVIR supplement. Educational exhibits, both traditional poster and ePoster, will not be published in the JVIR supplement. All accepted abstracts will be available for viewing on sirmeeting.org and in the SIR 2021 meeting app.
The JVIR Editor and the Annual Scientific Committee strongly encourage you to submit your full manuscript for potential publication inJVIR before the meeting or shortly afterwards. Please submit your article through Elsevier's Manuscript Submission System at https://www.ees.elsevier.com/jvir/. IMPORTANT: Before submitting your manuscript, make sure the consult our Instructions for Authors/Manuscript Preparation Guidelines at https://www.jvir.org/authorinfo. For questions, please contact the submissions management team at JVIR@sirweb.org.
Material may not be submitted to SIR that was previously presented at a national scientific radiology meeting within the United States. Work may be submitted to SIR that was presented outside the United States or at local or regional meetings within the United States or at a national meeting within the United States primarily attended by nonradiologists.
Requests for exemptions of work presented at national-level U.S. radiology meetings are honored on a case-by-case basis. To request an exemption or for further details regarding this policy, please contact Molly Barlow at (703) 460-5589 or email AnnualMeeting@SIRweb.org.
Yes. Abstracts submitted for presentation at any other national scientific radiology meeting within the United States may be submitted for presentation at SIR. If the work submitted to the SIR Annual Scientific Meeting is accepted for presentation at another national scientific radiology meeting within the United States the abstract must first be presented at SIR.
Any abstract accepted for presentation by another scientific meeting after submission to the SIR meeting must be disclosed by the submitting author to SIR in writing. If the abstract is accepted for presentation at SIR, a publication waiver in favor of JVIR must also be obtained from the secondary meeting. SIR reserves the right to revoke abstract acceptance if a waiver in favor of JVIR is not obtained. Once an abstract is accepted for presentation at SIR it may not be submitted or presented at any other meeting without a written waiver from SIR.
All presenting authors are responsible for arranging their own travel and logistical support and are required to register for the 2021 SIR Annual Scientific Meeting. Abstract presenters are not eligible for registration discounts.
Authors of scientific abstracts must be prepared to deliver their material orally or as a poster. There is no provision for "oral presentation only." Abstracts cannot be withdrawn once submitted nor will the format (oral or poster presentation) be modified after acceptance by the Annual Scientific Meeting Committee.
Upon notification of acceptance, abstract presenters must confirm that they will appear for the presentation at the stated date and time, or that a poster will be provided by the start of the meeting. The presentation times will not be adjusted once the scientific program is set. Absence from a scientific presentation or failure to provide an accepted poster at the start of the meeting will expose the presenting author, as well as all co-authors, to potential sanctions as described in the below Sanctions Policy. The Annual Scientific Meeting Committee reserves the right to waive abstract withdrawal sanctions under extraordinary circumstances only.
Failure to adhere to standards may expose both submitting and co-authors to professional sanctions up to and including exclusion from the SIR scientific program for a period up to three (3) years. The SIR Annual Scientific Meeting Committee reserves the right to refer any and all information related to possible professional misconduct to the author's institution of record.
