The 12th International Pediatric Simulation Symposia and Workshops –

Transitioning to IPSSV2020: A Virtual Experience

26-28 October, 2020

Call for Abstracts

Submit your original scholarly work in pediatric simulation research or education, technology development and evaluation.

Completed projects, as well as works in progress will be considered. Abstracts previously presented at regional, national or international meetings will also be considered. Simulation research and instructional sessions using standardized patients/actors and virtual reality as well as mannequin simulators, task trainers and computer-based simulations are encouraged.

All abstract submissions will undergo peer-review. The Abstract Committee will allocate accepted abstracts to one of five presentation formats.

Presentation formats:

  • Oral Themed Presentation Sessions
  • Traditional Poster Round Presentation Sessions
  • Ideas and Work-in-Progress Roundtable Discussions
  • Interactive Instructional Workshops
  • Immersive Simulation Workshops

Review the Abstract Submission Guidelines and submit your proposal using the abstract submission platform no later than Monday, 18 November 2019 at 11:59 PM (GMT).

DEADLINE EXTENDED to 11:59 PM Sunday, November 24th



Improve Presentation Skills – Whether you are accepted for an oral presentation or a poster, you will continue to develop your presentation skills, an essential competency in any career.

Peer Feedback – Peer review is vital part of any research project. Not only will peers review your proposal during the submission process, if selected to present, you will immediately receive feedback from your peers in an intellectually robust environment.

Global Visibility and Networking – Discuss your findings with other experts from around the world. Your research will be exposed to a diverse audience of hundreds of representatives from industry and academia, attending from over 40 countries.

Visibility – You will be recognized in the programme providing a better opportunity to be funded. You will build your network of colleagues who are interested in your topic.

IPSS leadership and the IPSSW meeting organizing committee have been closely monitoring the fluid situation around COVID-19. Institutional travel and funding restrictions make travel to a live event unfeasible for many. With this in mind, after careful consideration, we are excited to announce that IPSS is leading the way by converting IPSSW2020 to an innovative, interactive, live streaming format – IPSSV2020: A Virtual Experience.

The dates will remain 26-28 October 2020, with more details to come on the exact outline, agenda and pricing. Our commitment holds true to our virtual convening, as it does to our in-person IPSSW, that we offer a program allowing presentations of scientific work to be accessible to our global membership.

Our virtual convening is being developed to exceed your expectations and meet you in the moment with a format that promises to be even more engaging – thought provoking – and relevant than ever. 

You may expect more specific details around the virtual convening on or before July 15. We will also be in touch with current attendees directly regarding the change in registration. Email us at info@ipssglobal.org for answers to additional questions, or visit ipssglobal.org/ipssw-2020 for up-to-date information as it becomes available.

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding. We believe this pivot from an in-person convening to a virtual experience is the best decision for all. We look forward to seeing you all virtually in October, and wish you all the very best during these uncertain times.

Renowned global experts will gather for the world’s largest meeting dedicated exclusively to pediatric and perinatal simulation. Over three days, attendees will discuss the role simulation plays to provide safe and effective care to sick children and infants, and the continued evolution and expansion of pediatric simulation across the globe.

Learn the latest advancements in pediatric and neonatal simulation. Expand your horizons through the large variety of education sessions in various tracks offered at IPSSW2020.

Connect with industry professionals from all over the globe and see the products, services and the latest technology in simulation. Return with new relationships and knowledge that will keep you at the forefront of your field.

I am a UK-trained Neonatologist working in Starship NICU in Auckland, New Zealand. I am a member of the Douglas Starship Simulation faculty and lead the simulation programmer in NICU. My key simulation interests include education, communication and patient safety. I have been an active member of IPSS since 2011, member of the Education Committee since 2012, am a past Co-Chair of the Education Committee (2017-2018) and a current member of the Board of Directors. In collaboration with others, I established the IPSS-INSPIRE Fellowship in 2018 and am on the working group leading this initiative. My vision for IPSS is to continue to support collaborative knowledge sharing and research development in the pediatric and perinatal simulation community. My wish for IPSS is to see an increasing number of non-physician members and to support and develop the ability of those still at the early stage of simulation.
