Hyde Park Session
Tuesday - September 24, 2013, 2:00-3:30 PM
Deadline: Friday, May 31, 2013
We are looking for submissions to speak at the annual Hyde Park session. An essential component of successful
Hyde Park submissions is humor. Presentations should be clever and should challenge current opinion. The audience
should laugh its way to new insights.
In this session, speakers will be allowed to expound for 10 minutes on any topic of their choosing
as long as it is related to heart failure. The goal is to provide an opportunity to present concepts or
stimulate thoughts in a democratically structured session, unfettered by the usual standards of peer review.
Speakers may wish to present a novel hypothesis, which may or may not be supported by real data.
Speakers may elect to present a contrarian point of view, just for the fun of taking an unpopular position.
Speakers may decide to use the time allocated to posit, complain, cajole or provoke, all in an effort to
bring out reactions from the audience which might include anger, disbelief, fear, depression, guilt,
laughter or tears. Each presentation will be followed by 5 minutes of discussion.
Submitting an Abstract
Submissions will be judged based on originality and potential interest
to the audience. Up to six abstracts will be selected for presentation in the
Hyde Park Session.
If interested, please submit a title and brief paragraph summarizing your plans for
the 10-minute presentation (see below for form). Once completed,
please e-mail to email@example.com, or print and fax to the HFSA at 301-968-2431 by
Friday, May 31, 2013.
