The ASC, which is jointly sponsored by the Association for Academic Surgery and the Society of University Surgeons, is now accepting electronic abstract submissions. We will accept abstract submissions until the deadline on August 24, 2018. As in previous years, abstracts will be considered for presentation in full or quickshot oral format. Full oral talks will consist of an 8-minute presentation followed by 4-minutes of discussion. The quick shot talks consist of a 3-minute oral presentation, 5 slides maximum, and 2 minutes of discussion. We will also continue to showcase the top abstracts submitted to the meeting in plenary sessions dedicated to basic science, clinical/outcomes, and education.
Given our record-breaking abstract submission numbers over the past few years-and in order to maximize the number of participants in the ASC - we will continue to limit the number of abstracts that an individual first author may present to TWO presentations. There is no limit to the number of abstracts that may be submitted, and if more than two abstracts are accepted the two highest scoring abstracts will be selected for presentation. Please note that there is no limit on the number of abstracts in which an author may be included as a middle or senior author.
Abstracts accepted for presentation at the ASC are eligible for full manuscript submission to the Journal of Surgical Research (AAS) and Surgery (SUS).Manuscripts may be submitted to Surgery by January 21, 2019 or to the Journal of Surgical Research by March 1, 2019 for special meeting related consideration. Please see the Abstract Submission Guidelines for more details.
