DDW 2015 Late-Breaking Abstracts

New for 2015, the four sponsoring societies will jointly accept late-breaking abstracts for presentation at DDW to highlight the latest research in the field. Representatives from AASLD, AGA, ASGE and SSAT will review basic and clinical abstract submissions to find the most up-to-the-minute and novel GI developments that will soon impact both scientists and practitioners. Accepted late-breaking abstracts will be presented in a symposium at DDW.

Abstracts must be submitted at between Monday, Feb. 2, 2015 and Tuesday, Feb. 17, 2015. Please submit all abstracts online; faxed or mailed abstracts will not be accepted. Authors will be notified in March regarding acceptance.

There is a $120 non-refundable processing charge per late breaking abstract. Abstracts will not be submitted until payment information is complete. Please note that this is a processing fee and not a publishing fee. Abstracts not selected for presentation at DDW 2015 are also subject to the $120 fee. Authors have the option of paying by Visa®, MasterCard® or American Express®. No purchase orders or checks will be accepted.
