2024 SAVIR Annual Conference: Call for Proposals Now Open!
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The theme of the SAVIR 2024 conference is:
"Advancing Injury Prevention Through Community-Engaged Research"
Authors are invited to submit abstracts and other proposals focused on research and research-based practice encompassing all aspects of injury and violence prevention. During this meeting we will highlight community-engaged research. We welcome your submissions on these and other important topics in injury and violence prevention!
SAVIR conferences have provided a unique forum for participants to learn, exchange, and build upon the disseminated ideas to improve health and safety. As always, the goal of scientific sessions is to create an interface between researchers, methodologists, and practitioners to exchange new ideas, and ways to promote equity in health through injury and violence research.
SAVIR welcomes proposals both across varied injury and violence topics and across multiple approaches including sessions on interventions, practice, policy, methods related to different injury and violence mechanisms, analytical strategies, advocacy, and theory.
SAVIR values and encourages diversity and inclusion in its membership, and strives to address health inequities and racism in public health research. Hence, we invite all abstract submitters to please review the SAVIR “Conference Presenter Guidelines to Address Health Inequity and Racism" before abstract submission.
Be a part of the exchange by submitting a proposal!
The deadline for submissions is November 10th, 2023.
The SAVIR Program Committee will notify applicants regarding the status of their proposals no later than February 16th.
If accepted for presentation, the presenting author(s) must register to attend the 2024 SAVIR Meeting.
SAVIR membership is discounted through December 31 using the code Fall2023. Click here to join!
NOTE: The 2024 conference will be an in-person event and will not have a virtual component.
Call for Proposals including Short Courses, Technical Workshops, Individual Scientific Abstracts, and Scientific Symposia.
Short Courses are slated for 3.5 hours on Monday morning before the conference begins later that day. It is usually taught by one or more instructors on a topic of interest to Injury and Violence Prevention researchers and practitioners with (optional) hands-on practice time for attendees. If selected, up to two instructors per short course will receive complimentary conference registration, though more instructors are allowed. Instructors will also receive standardized course evaluations after the conference. Accepted short courses will need to meet the minimum number of registrants to be offered at the conference.

Please note that after entering and submitting required information pertaining to the short course, instructors are taken to a page where they must verify that the submission information is correct. Short course instructors are not required to attach individual abstracts to their submission. Please click Continue to ensure that your abstract is submitted.
Technical Workshops provide in-depth technical information about a topic relevant to injury and violence prevention researchers, preferably methodological (technical) in nature. Technical workshops will run concurrently with other 90-minute conference sessions. If selected, one instructor per technical workshop will receive complimentary conference registration, though more instructors are allowed. Instructors will also receive standardized course evaluations after the conference.

Short Course and Technical Workshop submissions should include:
- A proposal (maximum 500 words) that describes the motivation for the short course or technical workshop. Why is it important and timely to present this topic, with reference to current developments in injury and violence prevention theory and applications? Also, provide an overview of the proposed course content and learning objectives.
Individual Scientific Abstracts might be accepted for oral presentations or poster presentations. Students and/or early career presenters who have abstracts accepted for a poster session may also be asked to give a live 3-minute “flash science” presentation. The flash science format challenges authors to present their research in a clear, concise yet provocative way and provides the audience with a small taste of what will be presented in the subsequent poster session. It is designed to provide more visibility to early career members.
Individual scientific abstract submissions should include:
- The list of authors exactly as you wish them to appear on published material and in the correct order
- An abstract title
- The scientific abstract (300 word limit)
- The abstract should include the following sections: Statement of Purpose, Methods/Approach, Results, Conclusion, and Significance/Contribution
- Presenter Biography (150 word limit)

Scientific Symposium - Groups of 4-5 researchers can propose a full session on a shared topic. Symposia are similar to scientific sessions composed of individual oral presentations but are organized and submitted as a group by a session chair. Priority will be given to symposia submissions that are most relevant to this year’s theme, but submissions relevant to all areas of injury and violence prevention and control are encouraged.
Instructions for submitting a Scientific Symposium:
Scientific symposium submission is a two-step process that is initiated by the proposed symposium chair using the link found below.
Step 1:Presenting authors should:
- Submit their individual abstract per the Individual Scientific Abstract Guidelines provided above.
Step 2: The symposium chair will then:
- Create a scientific symposium session, including a title and
- An integrative statement (maximum 500 words) describing the motivation for the session
- Select the individual abstracts that will be part of their session
Please note that after entering and submitting required information pertaining to the symposium, chairs are taken to a page where they must verify that the submission information is correct. A list of submitted individual abstracts appears at the bottom of this page. Chairs are to choose and attach relevant abstracts to the symposium from this list and click continue.
