IARS, AUA & SOCCA 2023 ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS

General abstract submission for the 2023 Annual Meetings is now closed. Notifications will be sent the first week of February 2023. IARS late-breaking abstract submission is open and will close February 3, 2023. 

Please note – you will not be able to view submitted abstracts in your account while they are in the review process. 

Revisions to the Abstract Submission, including the Author Listing, Title, Body and Figures, are not permitted once the submission deadline has passed. The Abstract will be included in the Annual Meeting materials exactly as submitted.

As noted during abstract submission, the author that was designated during the submission process as the Presenting Author will be the first author in the final author listing. Should you change the presenting author for the meeting, we are unable to change the author listing and it will be published as it was submitted.

IARS Late-Breaking Abstract Submission

Late-breaking abstract submission for the IARS meeting is now open. The late-breaking abstract category allows for the submission of truly late-breaking, high-impact scientific research for which results were not available at the time of the general abstract submission deadline.

Late-breaking abstracts should present data that are high impact, ground breaking, innovative, and newsworthy. Medically challenging cases are not accepted for late-breaking submission.

Submission Deadline: February 3, 2023

Submission Best Practices

  • Originality and Scientific Merit: Were novel concepts or approaches used? Does the abstract challenge existing paradigms or develop new methodologies or technologies? Does the abstract address an important problem? Was scientific knowledge advanced?
  • Quality and Integrity of Research Design and Data Analysis: Is the study design clearly described? Are issues of reliability and validity of the measures addressed? Are the statistical analyses appropriate?
  • Conclusions: Are conclusions clearly stated? How well are the conclusions justified by the data?
  • Technical Writing: Is the abstract clearly written and well-organized, or is the abstract difficult to follow and unfocused? Are there virtually no spelling, punctuation, or grammatical errors, or do the errors pose a distraction to the content provided in the abstract submission?
