This is the official call for proposals for presentations, posters and platforms for the OTAO 2019 Annual Conference!  The committee is looking for presentations that are leading edge practices or current concepts - all specialties are welcome. The more variety the better. As in previous conferences, the conference will feature general sessions, breakout sessions/platforms, structured time for exhibits, posters, round table discussions, networking, and the semi-annual business meeting. 

We are now soliciting a variety of one-hour presentations that will both complement and enhance a strong conference experience. The presentations may include single or multiple presenters. Formats may vary from traditional lecture sessions with one or more presenters to short-form case presentations such as complicated patient cases, or brief research platforms.  The committee is open to hearing unique ideas.  If you have content exceeding 1 hour for an educational session you may submit two 1-hour sessions, designating in the title that this is Part 1 or Part 2.         

The OTAO Conference Committee will make the selection from the proposals for inclusion in the programming.  Selection criteria include: evidence base and clarity supporting the proposal, probable interest to conference attendees, feasibility, and space/ time constraints.

Dont be shy in providing more than one presentation, it is great to have many diverse topics to consider!

Please note that if your presentation is selected, OTAO will not be able to give an honorarium, or pay for lodging or travel to the conference.
