Information for Presenters:

Registration: Presenters are required to register. Click HERE to register on line.

Presentation Format: Abstract presentations are 12 minutes apart. Presentations should run 8 minutes allowing 2 minutes for Q and A. That provides a buffer of 2 minutes for set up, little issues, running long, etc. Videos should generally follow the same format. You will be able to make sure its ready to go before you go up there. Our AV technician will have 3 laptops and you can get it cued up so it is ready to go. Questions, contact Harvey Gail, Oregon Chapter ACS 503-371-7457.

Conference Theme: The conference speakers and debates will focus on rural surgery toppics. The theme is "The Right Care in the Right Place."

Abstracts Submission Dates:

1/1/18: Call for abstracts 4/1/18: Deadline to submit 4/13/18: Selections determined

General Guidelines: Due to the combined nature of the meeting, there will undoubtedly be greater competition for abstract slots. In order to accommodate as many presentations as possible, the bipartisan Abstract Review Committee will review all submitted abstracts. Approximately 30 - 40 will be selected.

The format is described on our onine abstract submission form. Abstracts are limited to 250 words.

Videos: This year we will be accepting up to 5 videos. We will select videos by subject area. To keep it interesting, we encourage videos with a theme such as "getting out of trouble" or "novel approaches." To submit a video, check the box "Other/video" on the subject area. Instead of the abstract, submit a brief description of the content and learning objectives for the video in the "abstract" box.

Self Assessment: Presenters should provide two multiple choice questions related to their abstract for self assessment. Give four possible answers and indicate which is

the correct answer. Presenters should refer to the questions at the meeting. Note: Please do not use "ALL OF THE ABOVE" or "NONE OF THE ABOVE." You may submit 1 case-based question.

Disclosures: All presenters must complete an ACS disculsure form, available on the abstract online form.
