21st Annual Meeting Call for Submissions

Call for Abstracts

Abstract submission for the 2020 meeting opened August 1. Researchers who want their abstracts considered for presentation must submit them no later than 3:00 pm ET on November 6, 2019. More information is available on the Society's Call for Abstracts webpage.

Opportunity for Publication

Select authors who are accepted for presentation will also be invited to submit a complete manuscript to be considered for publication in the Annals of Surgical Oncology

Special Recognition Opportunity for Residents, Fellows, and Medical Trainees

Breast fellows, medical trainees, and residents whose abstracts are accepted and who present during the meeting’s scientific session will be considered for the following awards:

  • The George Peters Award for the best paper presented by a breast fellow
  • The Outstanding Scientific Presentation Award for the best paper presented by a resident, fellow, or medical trainee

Both content, as well as presentation, will be considered in judging. A prize of $1,000 will be granted to the winner of the George Peters Award and $500 to the winner of the Outstanding Scientific Presentation Award—both of which are supported by The American Society of Breast Surgeons Foundation. Presentations are judged by members of the Society’s Publication Committee. The oral presenter whose research is judged by the audience to have the greatest scientific impact will be awarded the 2020 Scientific Impact Award. All scientific session presenters are eligible for that award.

Call for “How I Do It” Videos

The American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS) is again inviting you to submit a video for presentation in this year’s general session showing your colleagues your tricks of the trade. Your video can be used to demonstrate how you perform a novel procedure, provide tips or tricks you use on a standard procedure, or show an approach you take to a clinical problem. To have your video considered for presentation, it must be submitted no later than 3:00 pm ET on November 6, 2019. More information is available on the Society's Call for "How I Do It" Video Submissions webpage.

CME Clinical Content Validation

The American Society of Breast Surgeons is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Before you submit your video, please keep in mind ACCME's Policy on Content Validation: All the recommendations involving clinical medicine in a CME activity must be based on evidence that is accepted within the profession of medicine as adequate justification for their indications and contraindications in the care of patients. All scientific research referred to, reported, or used in CME in support or justification of a patient care recommendation must conform to the generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection and analysis.
