The submission website includes complete instructions, deadlines, and submission examples. No changes in abstracts will be allowed after submission.
Abstracts should represent original research not yet published or presented elsewhere and not to be published or presented prior to the 2018 IVECCS. Authors of successful abstracts will be notified via e-mail by June 6, 2018. Accepted abstracts will be presented at IVECCS in September. Each presentation will be twelve minutes in length followed by a three-minute discussion. Abstracts not accepted for oral presentation may be given the option to be presented as posters. Presenters may choose poster as the primary means of presentation if so desired by indicating preference on the submission website. ACVECC-approved residents will be eligible for an oral presentation award. A resident submitter should indicate on the submission website that s/he is an ACVECC-approved resident only if s/he is a resident at the time of abstract submission (April 2018), or if s/he completed residency in 2017 and the work to be presented was completed during the residency.
