The Western Institute of Nursing (WIN) will hold its 51st Annual Communicating Nursing Research Conference on April 11–14, 2018 at the Davenport Grand Hotel in Spokane, WA. WIN cordially invites you to submit a late-breaking abstract in research, project, or theoretical/conceptual format to be considered for podium presentation at the 2018 conference. Please note that project papers now include best practices.
Submissions must be received by WIN by 11:59 PM Pacific time on Friday, January 19, 2018. No extensions will be granted.
All abstracts, not to exceed one page, are to be submitted via WIN’s online abstract submission site. A link to the submission site is located at the end of this page.
Abstract Selection and Notification
The Program Committee will review late-breaking abstracts in late January and notifications will be sent in early February. The Program Committee will assign the times and dates of late-breaking presentations.
ALL PRESENTERS ARE REQUIRED TO REGISTER FOR THE CONFERENCE AND TO PAY THE APPLICABLE REGISTRATION FEE NO LATER THAN MONDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2018.
Members of WIN receive a registration fee discount. Employment in an organization that is a current Organizational Member of WIN does NOT confer individual or student membership rights. Individuals may join WIN at the time of registering for the conference to take advantage of the discount.
If the primary author is unable to attend the conference and has made arrangements for someone else to present the paper or poster, that person must register for the conference and pay the applicable registration fee.
The conference registration form and conference schedule will be available on the WIN website in mid-January.
PRESENTATION INFORMATION AFTER ABSTRACTS ARE SELECTED
Podium: In general, each abstract in a podium session is allotted 10 minutes for presentation, with 5 minutes for audience questions. Presentations will occur in the order they appear in the program. Podium presenters are expected to attend the entire session in which their paper is featured.
The onsite printed program will include the specific time for each abstract presentation, the name of the moderator for each session and meeting room assignments. Abstracts may list multiple study authors. The onsite printed program will list a maximum of two authors with an asterisk to indicate that additional authors will be listed with the abstract in the conference proceedings.
All abstracts for podium, symposium and poster sessions accepted by the Program Committee will be included in the Proceedings of the 51st Annual Communicating Nursing Research Conference and distributed at the conference. The proceedings will also include the papers of the invited plenary session speakers, the paper by the Distinguished Research Lecturer, and the papers by the recipients of the Carol A. Lindeman Award for a New Researcher and the Patsy A. Perry Award for Biological Nursing Research. The proceedings will not be copyrighted. You may publish your paper elsewhere. However, we request that you include a notation that the paper was presented at the 51st Annual Communicating Nursing Research Conference of the Western Institute of Nursing.
Each submitter or symposium contact person will be notified about the Program Committee’s decision on acceptance of an abstract. Each author is asked to accept the invitation to present (the location is the “Presenters Information Center”). We ask that presenters take very seriously their commitment to present, except in cases of true emergency.
There is a charge of $60 if a presenter notifies WIN that they will not participate after the proceedings are finalized. WIN publishes an errata sheet to be distributed with the proceedings indicating the names of individuals and their abstract titles that appear in the book but who did not present at the conference.
