2021 APTA Pennsylvania Call for Abstracts

The APTA Pennsylvania Practice and Research Committee invites members to submit abstracts for research, case reports, and special interest reports for presentation at the APTA Pennsylvania MovePA Annual Conference to be held Oct. 22-24, 2021, at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA. Submitted abstracts will be peer reviewed for consideration for platform or poster presentations. Abstracts that have been submitted or presented at other conferences may be considered for the MovePA Annual Conference.


Abstracts with data collection in progress at the time of the submission deadline may be considered for acceptance and therefore, in some circumstances, research results do not need to be completed prior to abstract submission. See the APTA Pennsylvania Abstraction Submission Guidelines for more detailed information.

Awards will be given for the best research, case report, and special interest report abstracts.

The Call for Abstracts closes on Monday, June 14, 2021 at 12:00 noon (EST). All submitting parties will be notified of the outcome by Aug. 27, 2021.

In order to assist with the review process, we require that individuals submitting abstracts strictly adhere to the posted guidelines for submission. Reviewers will closely assess for adherence to the stated criteria and standards, including formatting guidelines. Download the APTA Pennsylvania Abstract Submission Guidelines.

Please note: The primary presenter must be both an APTA and APTA Pennsylvania member. The primary presenter is responsible for all communication to/from the Chapter and Practice & Research Committee, and for forwarding any communications to other researchers included in this study. If the primary presenter is a student, the responsible faculty member’s name and contact information must also be provided.
