Call for Symposia

Dear SMDM Members and Colleagues:

Thanks to the enthusiastic participation of many of our SMDM members, the 41st Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon, was a huge success! We are now asking the SMDM community to continue this momentum by proposing symposia for the SMDM 42nd Annual Meeting to be held in Chicago, Illinois, USA, October 18-21, 2020.

The theme for the 2020 meeting is Relationships in Medical Decision Making. We are looking for thought-provoking symposia with widespread appeal to SMDM members. Proposals will be evaluated on content, relationship to theme, and geographic, demographic, and stakeholder diversity in the speakers. Nontraditional formats are welcome.

Your input into this process will be invaluable to the Planning Committee. Submissions will be accepted until Friday, February 14, 2020 at 5 PM ET. The Planning Committee will make symposia selections and notify all applicants by Friday, March 20, 2020.

Thank you,

David Meltzer, MD, PhD
Alan Schwartz, PhD

SMDM 42nd Annual Meeting Co-Chairs
