Call for Papers - submission deadline ends on 6 September 2015!

The Programme Committee of the OTWorld 2016 is inviting submissions of abstracts for free papers.

The World Congress OTWorld 2016 for specialists, with its inter-disciplinary orientation, integrates academia and research with the world of initial and advanced training and the world of practical application in one unique and prestigious sector event. Orthopaedic technicians (orthotists and prosthetists), orthopaedic footwear technicians and engineers, doctors and therapists from all over the world are brought together quite specifically to discuss improved care options for the benefit of patients and to forge new principles for action.

Submission of Abstracts

Abstracts are requested electronically by 6 September 2015.


Research/practical presentations or descriptions of case studies will be accepted on the following topics: Prosthetics, Orthotics, Foot and Shoe / Orthopedic Footwear Technology, Rehabilitation, Rehab technology, Sports Medicine and Open Topics (developing countries, material research, measuring technology, adapted technologies or XXL).

Presentation Format

Research/practical presentations or descriptions of case studies may be given orally or as a poster. The programme committee strives to assign submissions to the desired presentation type, but retains the right to allocate them to another type.

For the first time accepted posters will be displayed on monitors in a permanent ePoster exhibition. Posters are grouped into topics and honoured during a daily poster viewing procedure. After acceptance of a presentation as a poster, we request that you make an ePoster in PowerPoint format and send it around 14 days prior to the start of OTWorld.

Peer-Review-Process / Acceptance of Free Papers

At the close of free paper submission (September 6, 2015) abstracts will be anonymized and distributed to assigned reviewers for assessment and comment. On the basis of these reviews, the Program Committee will accept or reject the submissions and allocate accepted papers to an appropriate free paper or poster session. Authors will be notified of the outcome of the review process by the end of November 2015.
