WCA Researcher of the Year to Headline 2005 International Research and Philosophy Symposium

Mark your calendars now for Sherman College’s second annual International Research and Philosophy Symposium (IRAPS), October 22-23, 2005. With World Chiropractic Alliance Researcher of the Year Bob Blanks, Ph.D., as keynote speaker, plus many other distinguished presenters, it will be an event you won’t want to miss!

Although plans for the 2005 IRAPS, to be held on the campus of Sherman College, are currently being finalized, you still have time to submit an abstract (abstracts are due June 1). This year’s conference invites papers focused on the philosophical and scientific aspects of the neurophysiological components of the vertebral subluxation. Subtopics include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Neurological models that are pertinent to the
  interference component of the vertebral subluxation
• Deductive reasoning pertinent to the interference
  component of the vertebral subluxation
• Concepts and models pertaining to the mental
  impulse
• Tools for analyzing the neurological component of the
  vertebral subluxation
• Differentiation between neuropathy and vertebral
  subluxation
• Differentiation between misalignment and vertebral
  subluxation
• Neurological interference related to vertebral
  subluxation and methods of assessing its impact on
  health.

Abstracts should be 500 to 1,000 words. Each double-spaced detailed abstract should include a title and the following sections:

• Introduction — Describes the objective of the
  presentation and prior scholarship on the subject.
• Discussion — Interprets findings of the research and
  compares with findings of similar papers. Strengths
  and weaknesses of your work are also discussed. This
  section should also include methods and results.
• Conclusion — Draws conclusions based on the study’s
  findings and establishes new ground for further
  research.
• References — Citations from appropriate literature
  sources that relate to the study.

Please include your name, address, phone number, fax and e-mail address with each submission. Presenters are asked to supply a current vita showing educational and other scholarly accomplishments. Abstracts are due June 1, 2005. A $250 cash award will be granted to one philosophy and one scientific paper.
