There is no fee to submit an abstract.

Abstracts will be accepted for one of two categories:

  • Resident/Fellow
  • Junior/Mid-career (defined as up to 15 years of first faculty appointment)

The top 5 abstracts for each category will be presented orally on Friday, June 2, 2017 in Toronto. Presenters will have 7 minutes to present their abstracts, and 3 minutes to answer questions. Abstracts not scoring within the top 5 may be asked to prepare and present a poster board. Monetary prizes and plaques will be awarded for the oral and poster sessions for each category of submission (i.e., resident/fellow, junior/mid-career).

Authors are responsible for all costs associated with presenting their abstract including production of the poster, travel and accommodation.

Deadline – submissions will only be accepted through the online process and must be received no later than Sunday, April 30, 2017, 23:59 ET. Late, faxed or mailed submissions will not be accepted.
