The American College of Gastroenterology invites all members and non-members, including physicians and non-physicians, gastroenterologists, internists, surgeons, hepatologists, radiologists, pediatricians, and GI fellows, to submit abstracts for the ACG 2018 Annual Meeting. This meeting will be held October 5-10, 2018 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is Monday, June 25, 2018 at 11:59 pm Eastern Time
. This deadline will be strictly enforced and no exceptions will be made. Once you begin an abstract submission, you will be able to save your work and return to complete it until the submission deadline; ACG encourages all submitters to begin the process early! There will be heavy site traffic during the days leading up to the deadline and on the final day, so plan accordingly and do not wait until the last minute to submit your abstract!
Please note that no modifications, additions, corrections, or changes of any kind, either to the abstract or authors information, will be permitted after submission
, so proofread your abstract carefully prior to submission.
An administrative fee of $60 (payable online via credit card in U.S. dollars) is required for each abstract submitted. There will be no refunds and no exceptions made to this policy. All abstracts submitted, regardless of whether or not they are accepted for presentation, will appear in the October supplement of The American Journal of Gastroenterology.
Notification of abstract acceptance as an oral or poster presentation will be sent via email to the presenting author of a submitted abstract prior to July 31, 2018. IMPORTANT: Please provide an email address that will be in use through October, otherwise notifications may not reach you.
Presenting authors whose abstract has been accepted for either oral or poster presentation MUST REGISTER as an attendee for the ACG 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting, pay the appropriate registration fee, and present the abstract at the assigned date and time. No changes in assigned dates or times will be permitted.
