The 28th Annual Vascular Research Initiatives Conference (VRIC), presented by Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS), is a one-day session preceding the main ATVB meeting, uniquely designed to foster interaction among top scientists of diverse disciplines who are investigating peripheral vascular disease and its treatments. VRIC is also dedicated to stimulating and encouraging interest in research among trainees who are aspiring academic vascular surgeons. The meeting's exclusive and intimate atmosphere allows for the free exchange of ideas and development of collaborative projects equally among senior and junior investigators.
In order to submit an abstract for VRIC 2014, the abstract must be submitted online
to the ATVB 2014 by January 17. On the tab for VRIC, indicate that the abstract should be considered for presentation at VRIC. The abstract submission fee must be paid, but there is no additional fee for submission to the VRIC. All submitted abstracts will be reviewed and considered for presentation at ATVB 2014 Scientific Sessions. Poster or oral presentation at the VRIC 2014 does not preclude poster presentation at the ATVB 2014. VRIC 2014 presenters are encouraged to also present their data at the ATVB 2014 poster session.
The presenting author of an accepted abstract must pay the VRIC registration fee. VRIC registrants receive a $100 discount on ATVB 2014 registration. All other expenses, (airfare, lodging, etc.) associated with the submission and presentation of an abstract are the responsibility of the presenter.
