Call for Poster Abstracts

Important dates:
Abstract submission deadline:     May 11, 2015
Acceptance notification:               June 22, 2015
Registration deadline:                  July 13, 2015

The Scientific Program Committee invites you to submit your research in the form of a one-page abstract (2500 characters) for the 2015 IAYT Symposium on Yoga Research (SYR). We welcome scholarly research-based submissions related to any tradition or aspect of Yoga. While general literature reviews are not acceptable, we welcome meta-analyses or rigorous systematic reviews of original yoga research literature will be welcomed. Case study abstracts are also welcome. Authors with a background in Yoga, integrative health care, and/or scientific research are all encouraged to submit.

Abstracts must include unpublished material and data. Material that has been formally published by the abstract submission dates will not be accepted. Most abstracts without data to support findings will be rejected, although abstracts that describe study design and methods for well-developed and/or funded studies (i.e., no abstracts for pilot or preliminary studies) may be considered for poster presentation depending on abstract quality. However, such abstracts will not be published in the International Journal of Yoga Therapy supplement.

All abstracts will be anonymously peer reviewed, scored, and chosen on merit for poster presentation during SYR. All accepted abstracts (other than study design and methods abstracts) will be published in a supplement to the International Journal of Yoga Therapy, which will be available to all participants at the symposium.

Individuals whose abstracts are selected will be required to register for the meeting; abstracts from authors who do not register will not be accepted. All abstract submitters must register for SYR 2015 by July 13 following notification of acceptance/rejection. 

Poster set-up will be from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on Monday, September 28. Posters must be removed by 3:00 pm on Wednesday, September 30.
