Message from ASSOBRAFIR President

The International Symposium on Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapy and Physiotherapy in Intensive Care (SIFR), in its twentieth edition, arrives at Ilha da Magia.

This event, which also hosts the Brazilian Congresses of Respiratory, Cardiovascular and Intensive Care Physiotherapy, represents the meeting point for Brazilian Physiotherapists and from all over the world, interested in sharing experiences, evolving professionally, reviewing and making new friends.

Keeping the tradition of growing with each edition, the XX SIFR will incorporate three new events (I South American Congress of Respiratory, Cardiovascular and Intensive Care Physiotherapy; Congress of the Latin American Society of Respiratory Care; and II Brazilian Congress of Respiratory Physiotherapy in Sleep Disorders ), and several intra-congress activities, bringing together a record number of national and international speakers, who will discuss the most current and relevant topics from the different areas of expertise of our specialties.

Proof of the event’s continued growth is the increased participation, among registrants and speakers, of colleagues from Spanish-speaking countries. In this sense, in order to provide the best possible use of the event, in an unprecedented way, in this edition, the SIFR will have simultaneous translation Portuguese-Spanish-English, at the times of the activities of international guests, obeying the speaker’s source language.

In this way, we understand that we take another fundamental step towards the effective internationalization of the ASSOBRAFIR and SIFR brands, in addition to contributing to a closer relationship between the various entities representing Physiotherapy / Respiratory, Cardiovascular and Intensive Care Kinesiology in Latin America.

Together with the committees involved in the organization of this great event, we are determined to make this the biggest and best SIFR ever, and we will spare no effort to welcome everyone with the joy, hospitality, organization and professionalism that mark this management of ASSOBRAFIR.

We are waiting for you at the XX SIFR, to once again, live unforgettable moments together!

Message President of the XX SIFR

Welcome to a “Manezinha” cream! 

Welcome to Florianópolis, this welcoming island with maximum diversity! 

It is with great satisfaction and honor that I preside over the XX SIFR, an event of a technical and scientific character which will be contemplated with many stories in Ilha da Magia, nickname given to the beautiful capital of Santa Catarina for its natural beauty, excellent quality gastronomy, folklore, myths and legends. 

The city of Florianópolis, besides being charming, is considered one of the best capitals to live in, one of the most sought after and most awarded destinations in Brazil, highlighted in technology and innovation, and a reference among the country’s “creative cities”. 

The natives of the capital of Santa Catarina are affectionately called “Manezinhos da Ilha”. The term popularly used is due to its historical ancestry of populations of the islands of the Azores belonging to Portugal. 

Translated by the poet Zininho as “A little piece of land lost in the sea”, the island has 500 thousand inhabitants and a lot of history to tell! Among them, the famous and fascinating tales about witches, recorded by Franklin Cascais. Witches are protagonists of the legends told by the natives, where they scared the fishermen, stole their boats, played with their nets and still had fun knotting the mane of horses. Legend has it that witches live among the population and there is a belief that anyone who moves to Floripa should ask the witches for permission. Don’t worry, the license for each one of you has already been granted to live unforgettable moments on Ilha da Magia! 

It is in the “manezês” language, the Ilhéu and sung speech, that I invite you all to the most important and grandiose event of Respiratory Physiotherapy, Cardiovascular and Intensive Care in the world:“Ó-lhó-lhó, dear dear (a)! Fool tax if you don’t come to XX SIFR in Floripa! Go straight all the life you get here in two touches! See you that it will be the most beautiful thing! ”

Abstract Grading/Results

All reviewers in the committee are blinded for the origin of the abstract. Each reviewer is selected by the SIFR Abstract Selection Committee to review abstracts in their category that best fits their expertise.

Submissions are peer-reviewed for scientific content, logical presentation, and current interest of the topic to the scientific community.

The final selection will be made by the SIFR Abstract Selection Committee in January 2021 that will determine the format, day and time of presentation for each abstract. No rescheduling or abstract changes will be possible.

Unless your abstract is selected for one of the awards (YIA or TIA), all accepted abstracts will be presented either as Oral Presentations or Moderated Poster or Thematic Poster Presentations, based on their grade. The presentation types are:

Presentation types

Oral sessions

Presenters will have to summarise their research in an eight-minute presentation and interact with the audience afterwards. Discussions will be led by experts chairing the session. Presenters will be in competition for the “Best Oral Presentation”.

Moderated poster sessions

Posters consist of visual display of the research, which can be visited by other researchers. In this type of session, the posters will be presented in a poster format to appointed moderators in front of an audience. The audience is welcome to join in the discussion. Presenters will be in competition for the “Best Moderated Poster”.

Thematic poster sessions

Posters consist of visual display of the research, which can be visited by other researchers. Thematic poster sessions are a very popular platform where our community truly comes together to network and to exchange experiences. Presenters will be in competition for the “Best Thematic Poster”.

Presentations, including questions-and-answers, will be conducted in Portuguese/English (categories 1 – 8) or Spanish/English (categories 9 and 10). However, if you are a foreign presenter, you may choose to present in English or Spanish. In this case, the presenter must notify the Abstract Selection Committee that will provide you with specific instructions.

All abstract submissions will be notified by email until 12th February 2021 concerning the outcome of the review and selection process (i.e. accepted or not accepted). Please ensure that the email provided is accurate as all correspondences will be sent via email.      

*Instructions and guidelines concerning the abstract presentation will be provided online.
