Please note the following SSAT requirements from the abstract submission instructions:

  • If an abstract is selected for an SSAT Plenary presentation, the author is required to submit a manuscript at the time of the meeting for potential publication in the Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery by June 30, 2016. Failure to do so will result in the prevention of future abstract submissions for a period of 3 years for all authors. If the abstract is accepted for a Quick Shot or Poster presentation, the author is encouraged to submit a manuscript for potential publication in the JOGS.
  • An author can have more than one abstract accepted for SSAT podium presentation (includes Plenary and Quick Shot oral presentations, as well as Video presentations), but can present only one of those podium presentations. In this case, unique co-authors must present the other podium presentations. (There is no limit on the number of Posters accepted per author, per institution, or per subject.)
  • As mentioned above under Membership, for SSAT abstracts only, at least one SSAT member must be listed in the author string. If not, then an SSAT member must be listed as the sponsor of the submission.
