Abstract Submission

Thank you to everyone who submitted abstract presentations for the IPSO Founding Members’ Congress previously planned for May 2020. Since the Congress has officially been postponed to July 19th-21st, 2021, all accepted oral and poster presentations will be moved to the July 2021 program. We will be in touch to confirm if presenters are able to attend the new Congress dates.
