Call for Abstracts

The American College of Surgeons Program for Accreditation of Education Institutes is offering opportunities for presentation of original paper, poster, and innovative techniques presentations at the Annual ACS Surgical Simulation Summit, March 15–16, 2019 in Chicago, IL. The abstract submission deadline is 11:59 (CST) Monday, November 5.

The Program Review Committee will review submitted abstracts and make decisions regarding their selections for original paper, poster, or innovative techniques presentations. All consortium abstract submissions must be from original research, not previously published or presented. It is also expected that all work submitted and accepted will be presented at the Annual Surgical Simulation Summit.

Please note. All abstracts selected for Original Paper presentations will require those authors to submit their manuscripts before the Annual Surgical Simulation Summit (by February 28, 2019). This guideline will allow for the moderator of the papers session and the discussant of an original paper presentation to become familiar with the research being presented before the meeting.

First-named abstract authors will be notified of the Program Review Committee’s decision by January 11, 2019. If you have any questions on the ACS AEI abstract submission process, please review our FAQ or contact Amy Johnson, ajohnson@facs.org or 312-202-5415.
