Abstracts for poster presentations are being accepted for the Annual Symposium of the Canadian Society for Pharmaceutical Sciences (CSPS) & Canadian Chapter of the Controlled Release Society (CC-CRS), to be held at the Centre Mont Royal, Montreal, QC, Canada, June 10-13, 2014.  Abstracts in all areas of pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences will be accepted.

The deadline for submission is Monday, 24 March 2014, and authors will be informed of acceptance by 7 April 2014.

Posters will be displayed on Wednesday, 11 June OR Thursday, 12 June.  Posters will be displayed on Velcro panels; presenters must mount their work using Velcro only.  The boards are 3 feet high by 8 feet across.  Presenting authors must be registered for the conference and be present to discuss their work during all break periods of their assigned day.

All submitted posters will be reviewed by a scientific review committee.  Posters presented should contain original work.  However, in exceptional cases, work presented elsewhere within the last 12 months may be considered.  Such work must be highly original and deemed of high importance by the abstract review committee to merit a second presentation.  Work that has been presented elsewhere must be clearly acknowledged at the end of the abstract with the name of the meeting, the date of the original presentation, and referenced to the publication if abstract has been published.  Only those abstracts that have not been presented elsewhere can be considered for poster awards.

All presented poster abstracts will be published in the Journal of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences following the Symposium.
