Call for Abstracts

We would like to remind you that the deadline for abstract submissions is February 1st. Visit our website to take advantage of the time saving online abstract submission process.
Please note that each course, symposium and workshop abstract will require the submission of three multiple-choice questions (MCQs), which will be used to develop a Section 3 self-assessment test. For more information, please review the Call for Abstracts on our website. The abstract deadline cannot be extended.

Look for the Preliminary Program and registration information on our website in June.

Conference App

CPA’s conference app will be launched a few weeks prior to the 2020 conference. The app offers the scientific schedule, invited speaker profiles, social media, conference alerts, and evaluations (available after start of conference). You can search by date, presentation type, and time while also creating your own session schedule within the app.
