ISSM Symposium at SIU
Call for Abstracts - International Symposium on Prostate, Androgens and Men's Sexual Health
The ISSM will organize a symposium at the forthcoming 33rd Congress of the Société Internationale de Urologie (SIU), being held in Vancouver from September 8-12, 2013. Of course we invite all of you to attend, but we are also seeking members who might be willing and able to contribute to this symposium as Faculty members. ISSM is honored to be invited to deliver symposia at major international congresses, but must rely upon the generosity of its members with their time and skills for events such as this. The SIU does offer complimentary registration to Faculty, but ISSM does not provide any additional financial support.
As part of preliminary planning, would those ISSM members who plan to attend this meeting and are willing to assist as Faculty members in this ISSM symposium please indicate their interest to the ISSM Executive Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. The theme, title and program for the session have yet to be determined. More information about the SIU congress and program can be found at www.siucongress.org/2013
Sexual Medicine: New Journal Welcomes Submissions
The Scientific Committee of the International Symposium on Prostate, Androgens and Men’s Sexual Health is now welcoming abstracts for podium (oral) and poster presentations to be made at that meeting.
This is an exciting chance to for researchers to present their findings to a global audience. All of the abstracts presented at the meeting will be published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
Organized jointly by the International Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM) and the European Society for Sexual Medicine (ESSM), the symposium will be held June 21 - 23, 2013 at the InterContinental Hotel in Berlin, Germany. For more information, please click here.
All abstract proposals must be submitted by March 1, 2013. Interested researchers may submit their abstract(s) via the meeting website.
Last month, the ISSM launched its newest journal, Sexual Medicine. Published by Wiley-Blackwell, Sexual Medicine's readership includes healthcare professionals from around the globe who study and treat sexual health issues, such as biologists, endocrinologists, family practitioners, gynecologists, internists, neurologists, physiologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, public health practitioners, sex therapists, urologists and other clinical practitioners.
The editorial board, led by Dr. Alan W. Shindel of the University of California Davis, welcomes submissions in the following areas:
• basic anatomy and physiology pertaining to human sexuality
• clinical management of sexual dysfunction
• epidemiological studies in sexuality
• psychosexual and interpersonal dimensions of human sexuality
• clinical trials
Because Sexual Medicine is an open access journal, its content will be available to the public free of charge. To cover the cost of publication, authors will be charged a publication fee. Please click here to learn more about this fee.
All active ISSM members, including joint APSSM, ESSM, ISSWSH, MESSM, SLAMS & SMSNA members will receive an 80% discount on the publication charge for a special introductory period. Members may obtain this discount by clicking here.
All papers submitted to Sexual Medicine will undergo strict peer review. Accepted manuscripts will be published within weeks of acceptance and deposited into PubMed. Authors retain the copyright to their articles, which are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial license.
