Now with new guidelines, the deadline for submitting scientific papers is July 31st.
The 50th CBOT is now receiving scientific papers on any topics related to orthopaedics and traumatology, which can be presented in two different categories: Oral Presentation or E-poster (electronic poster). This year, only structured anonymous abstracts will be accepted, and cannot include any information on the authors or the services they provide. Abstracts with any kind of information about authors and institution will be automatically disqualified.
Geraldo Motta, chair of the 50th CBOT Scientific Committee, says the submission of abstracts instead of full scientific papers will make it possible to conduct a more objective review of the topics to be presented at the congress. “It’s also important to note that colleagues should be very careful when submitting their abstracts. They can have absolutely no kind of identification, otherwise they could have their work immediately disqualified, no matter how good it is,” he explains.
Papers can be submitted through www.cbot2018.com.br by July 31st. All information required in the form should be filled, and content, authors, and co-authors cannot be changed after the work is submitted. Unfilled fields will not allow you to submit your paper. The lead author must be registered to participate in the congress in order to submit a paper.
Roberto Ikemoto, chair of the SBOT Continuing Education Committee, points out it’s the institution’s role to encourage the production of scientific papers among fellow orthopaedists. “The SBOT’s mission is to improve scientific conditions for orthopaedists. To encourage participation, there will be awards for the best scientific works in the anatomy, clinical, and experimental study categories. There will also be an award for best e-poster.
