Call for Abstracts

The deadline to submit abstracts is now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted.

Arthritis Society Canada, the Canadian Rheumatology Association, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research-Institute of Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis invite researchers to submit abstracts for presentation at the fourth annual Canadian Arthritis Research Conference (CARC). Participants at all career stages, including but not limited to, faculty members, research associates, clinicians, trainees of all levels, and consumers/patient partners are encouraged to submit abstracts that relate to the theme of Arthritis Across the Lifespan. We encourage biomedical, clinical, health systems, and population health research in the broad field area of arthritis.  This is an opportunity to share your work with colleagues nationally and internationally.

If your abstract is accepted, you will be invited to present your research through an oral presentation at one of the pre-conference Research Presentation Days to be held virtually on Tues. Jan 31, Mon. Feb 6, and Tues. Feb 14, 2023.

The top 8 ranked abstracts will be invited to speak at the CARC Keynote & Symposia held on February 15 & 16, 2023 (See Prizes section below).

Note that we will not be holding a traditional poster session at CARC 2023. 

Please read the following submission details carefully and submit your abstract by October 3, 2022.
