American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Call for Abstracts

Instructions and Guidelines

All healthcare professionals including surgeons, nurses, residents, trainees, operational experts, and leadership affiliated with the ACS Quality Programs are invited to submit a 250-word abstract to be considered for an on-demand poster presentation.

Abstracts that have been submitted or recently presented at other meetings are eligible for presentation at the ACS Quality and Safety Conference. In the view of ACS, the previous presentation of a paper does not prohibit the presentation or publication of the material at the Quality and Safety Conference.

Due to constraints presented by the pandemic, all abstracts will be presented virtually only during the 2022 Quality and Safety Conference. Individuals whose abstracts are selected are not required to attend the in-person event.

There is no limit for abstract submissions per primary author and/or co-author. Mandatory templates and guidelines will be sent after acceptance.

Only two images (including tables) may be embedded per abstract. Only one table attachment per abstract may be submitted. Files must be in .jpg or .png format. Other file types will not be accepted.

The Call for Abstracts is now closed.

Authors, please refer to your speaker profile for directions and resources.
