Submit Abstracts by August 11 for STS Annual Meeting

Plan to present your research on a global stage at the STS 57th Annual Meeting, scheduled for January 30-February 2, 2021, in Austin, Texas. (Note: STS is closely monitoring the COVID pandemic and its potential impact on the meeting.)

Don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of this high-profile event that includes thought-provoking lectures, practice-changing science, and hands-on instruction from renowned experts. No other meeting offers more translational science that you can take home and put into practice.

Only a couple of weeks remain to submit abstracts for oral presentations, scientific posters, and surgical videos. The submission deadline is Tuesday, August 11, 2020, at 3:00 p.m. Central Time.

Abstract submission categories include:

  • Adult cardiac surgery
  • Congenital heart surgery
  • General thoracic surgery
  • Basic science research
  • Perioperative/critical care
  • Quality improvement
  • Cardiothoracic surgery education

It’s important to note that if you are involved in Phase I, II, or III clinical trials for which no preliminary data will be available by the August deadline, you can submit late-breaking promissory abstracts if the data are expected to be available by December 14, 2020.

New! You also can specify whether submitted research is related to COVID-19.

Review the abstract submission instructions and guidelines, and submit your abstract today.

Take Part in Tech-Con

The Society also is accepting ideas for Tech-Con presentations that focus on new cardiothoracic surgical technologies and innovative, off-label, or outside-the-box techniques that address complex problems.

Anyone can submit a proposal, including industry representatives, for a product, device, drug, or application that is currently undergoing investigation. Accepted pitches will be presented to a panel of experts and the audience during the popular Shark Tank session. The submission deadline for Tech-Con is Tuesday, August 11, 2020.
