All trainee research-in-progress submissions that meet all requirements will be accepted for participation at the 2017 HOPA Annual Conference. Trainee Research in Progress that is submitted in electronic poster form for consideration for the annual award (see HOPA Trainee Research Award) is reviewed by volunteer HOPA members serving on an abstract review work group. Further information regarding review criteria is available online on the Trainee Research-in-Progress FAQ.
HOPA Trainee Research Award
HOPA identifies the best trainee poster for an annual award. To be considered for the award, the presenter must be a HOPA member, must be a trainee, and must submit an electronic poster (PDF) by the pre-specified deadline prior to the HOPA meeting to allow for review. Electronic posters will be due approximately 4 weeks prior to the meeting to allow time for off-site review. Further details and information will be communicated with the trainee regarding the electronic poster process upon initial submission of their title and objectives. Information regarding review criteria is available online by visiting our Trainee Research-in-Progress FAQ page.
Responsibility for Expenses
The HOPA Annual Conference gives hematology/oncology pharmacy professionals the opportunity to present their work within an atmosphere of support by peers and national leaders. Presenters must register for at least the day on which they are scheduled to present. Only those presenters committed to attending the conference may submit an abstract. Presenters are responsible for all expenses such as production and shipping of posters, and for personal expenses such as travel, hotel, and meeting registration fees.
Avoidance of Commercialism
All presentations must avoid commercialism. Presentations that constitute promotion and advertising (including the use of logos) will not be considered. If the cost of any presentation has been underwritten to any extent, a clear acknowledgment stating the support, identifying the source, and describing the methods for keeping the content unbiased should be included. Advertising matter that in any way promotes the commercial interest of a particular company, enterprise, or the author(s) may not be distributed or displayed. Statements made in the presentation are the sole responsibility of the author and are not viewed as, or considered representative of, any formal position taken on any product, subject, or issued by HOPA.
Notices of acceptance and declination will be emailed to the address provided within two weeks of the submission deadline. Instructions on the creation and submission of the electronic poster will be emailed with acceptance notification.
