All abstracts must be submitted by the primary author through the below form. The primary author will be contacted via email by December 2017 on the status of the abstract.
You may submit as many abstracts as you would like. Encore abstracts are accepted. All accepted abstracts will be published in the Hernia Journal abstract book, as they were submitted. If your abstract is approved for presentation (free paper/oral presentation) at the 2018 International Congress, the author is required to submit a manuscript reflecting the abstract no more than 60 days after the meeting for consideration for publications in the official journal of the AHS/EHS.
If you plan to submit a video abstract, you will not be able to upload a video during your submission process. Please check 'Video' as the Presentation Type and complete your 300-word abstract. You will be emailed after your submit on the due date for your video.
Abstract submissions that are product or company specific will not be accepted as free paper/oral presentations due to CME guidelines.
