Submit your abstracts now via the DDW 2014 abstract submission site. Please note that the video submission instructions have changed this year.
Read DDW Abstract Submission Instructions
Each author on an abstract or video's author string must complete his/her own online financial disclosure statement by December 16, 2013. ALL authors must complete the disclosure form either disclosing all financial relationships with commercial interests or indicating that none exist. Submitting authors will NOT be allowed to submit disclosures on a co-author's behalf. It is the responsibility of the submitting author to ensure that all co-authors submit their financial disclosure for DDW 2014. Abstracts missing co-author financial disclosures may be in jeopardy of not being reviewed and involuntarily withdrawn from DDW 2014.
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. 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.
