Abstracts from Consultants, Surgical Trainees and Aspirants are invited. There is a vast amount of untapped experience and knowledge within our membership base and we encourage you to share your wisdom, research and findings by submitting abstracts which will potentially enhance the topics our guests are presenting. These sessions have become both entertaining and informative, and we look forward to your contribution. Please note, that in previous meetings we have been able to include most of the submitted presentations, however, the number of papers submitted has increased each year and we are unable to accept all of the free papers offered.
Submissions must conform to the Abstract Preparation Guidelines as outlined below. Abstracts which do not comply with the rules of submission or layout guidelines, will be declined and returned to the author. Abstracts without results (or with “results pending”, “results to be discussed” or similar) will not be considered for presentation.
Presentations will be selected based on scientific merit, clinical merit and topicality. There may be only one presenting author, but multiple authors may be listed on the submission. Authors must disclose if their abstract has been previously submitted, published or presented. You will be required to indicate your disclosures and whether the presentation is industry supported or initiated. Where applicable, all studies must have been approved by institutional committees on ethics of experimental and human/animal investigations.
Submission of an abstract acknowledges your acceptance for the abstract to be published in all printed material of the 2019 ASAPS Annual meeting. Only abstracts from authors who have paid their registration fees by 1 August 2019 will be scheduled for presentation and included in the conference handbook.
