This survey applies to all abstracts submitted for potential presentation at the 2020 SIS European Congress (May 23-24 - Dubrovnik, Croatia) and the SIS Annual Meeting (August 5-8 - San Diego).

If you are submitting abstracts for BOTH meetings, you only need to complete this survey ONCE, unless your information has changed since the previous date of completion.

If you submitted an abstract for the 2020 Winter Seminar or SpineWeek 2020, you WILL need to complete this survey, as a new conflict of interest policy was approved in November 2019 and this survey reflects that updated policy.

Visit the SIS Call for Abstracts webpage for more information, formatting requirements, and the online submission forms.
All authors of a research abstract are required to submit a disclosure. Potential for conflict of interest can exist whether or not the Discloser believes that the relationship affects his or her judgment.

This disclosure form is intended to supplement, but not replace, any applicable state laws governing conflicts of interest applicable to non-profit and charitable corporations.

Disclosers must disclose all personal financial interests, affiliations, and relationships, including those of family members (spouse, domestic partner, parent, child, and sibling) that may be perceived as potentially influencing either the Discloser or society-supported activities. Conflicts of interest pertain to, without limitation, subject matter that has a reasonable potential to result in financial, professional, or other personal gain or loss for the Discloser, the Discloser’s family, employer, or other persons with whom the Discloser maintains a relationship.

If any changes occur to the disclosed information after the form is submitted, a new/updated form must be submitted to SIS immediately.

The Research Division will review your disclosures as part of the abstract evaluations.

For more information, please see the Society's Disclosure Policy and Conflict of Interest Resolution Policy for Abstract Presentations Policy.
