SAVIR is holding its 2019 Conference in April, and we would appreciate it if you will post this Call for Abstracts to your membership.
The Society for Advancement of Violence and Injury Research (SAVIR) will be hosting its Seventh National Conference at the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati, Ohio ,from April 1-3, 2019. We are inviting abstract submissions related to injury and violence prevention and control science for this dynamic meeting experience.
SAVIR is a professional organization that provides leadership and fosters excellence in the science of preventing and treating injury and violence. Over the last several decades, injury and violence prevention and control scientists have worked tirelessly to enhance the health and safety of communities across the United States and abroad. Representing a variety of fields, disciplines, and organizations, these professionals work collaboratively to decrease the national burden of injuries and violence.

The theme for the 2019 conference is “Injury Prevention Advocacy: From Research to Policy.” During this meeting we will highlight the new and creative ways that scientists are advancing injury and violence research and how these innovations may impact and be impacted by policy and advocacy. Research leading to policy implementation or change, descriptions of advocacy efforts that utilize or promote injury research, inventive methodologies, partnerships and advocacy that support policy-related work, and innovative new findings are just some of the many examples. Authors are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts relevant to the meeting’s theme, but submissions relevant to all areas of injury and violence prevention and control are also welcome. 

There are a number of different opportunities for presentation including flash science, oral, and poster sessions. All injury and violence prevention scientists are invited to submit abstracts to the general meeting.

Back by popular demand for the 2019 conference is a format geared specifically toward students and early career scientists called, “flash science.” This format will challenge authors to present their research in a clear, concise yet provocative way. As in years prior, students can participate in the Student Paper Competition. In addition, both students and non-students who present at the conference are eligible to receive Outstanding Injury Science Awards (see below for more details). 
Abstracts must be submitted via the conference website, no later than Sunday, December 17th. Please call the SAVIR office if you have any questions at 937.586.3702
