Sherman College of Chiropractic is now accepting abstracts for its 17th annual International Research and Philosophy Symposium (IRAPS), a peer-reviewed chiropractic conference that addresses vertebral subluxation research and the philosophy of chiropractic. Abstracts must be submitted by April 15. IRAPS 2020 will be held Oct. 10-11 on the Sherman College campus in Spartanburg, S.C.
Topic examples for this year’s abstracts, both for platform and poster presentations, may include:
- Case studies that focus on the location, analysis and correction of vertebral subluxation (LACVS)
- Philosophy of chiropractic as a component of LACVS-type care
- Scholarly pursuits that will advance chiropractic education, practice and the profession
The goal of IRAPS is to bring leaders in philosophy and research together, along with practitioners and educators who are centered on vertebral subluxation practice, to build a stronger academic community worldwide regarding the subluxation model of chiropractic. The program’s intent is to foster a view that the chiropractic profession is centered on vertebral subluxation, based on vitalism, dedicated to research and developing a discipline of philosophy.
Continuing education credit will be available, but attendees may choose to attend without CE credit for a lower registration rate. Full details will be released after speakers have been selected. Registration for the conference opens June 1.
Abstracts are to take the form of short papers having approximately 300 words. References are expected. Each submission undergoes a peer-reviewed process. Find out more about IRAPS and view the detailed Call for Submissions, including abstract guidelines, at sherman.edu/iraps.
