Welcome to the online abstract/video submission site for the
2024 NASBS 33rd Annual Meeting
The 2024 NASBS 33rd Annual Meeting will be held
February 16-18, 2024
Atlanta Marriott Marquis
Friday, September 15, 2023
5:00 PM (Eastern Daylight Time)
This year, in addition to written abstracts, NASBS will also welcome the submission of surgical videos through the abstract process. Both, open and endoscopic approach videos will be considered. Videos will be reviewed for quality of the video, narration (must be in English), content, teaching value and overall interest to our audience. The video must be structured with a brief narrated slide show (no more than 3 slides) of the relevant clinical information, preoperative clinical imaging, a step-by-step narrated surgical video with the most important technical aspects of the case and post-operative imaging if relevant. The total length of the video should be no more that 6 minutes.
There is a 500-word limit and four (4)-image limit for written abstracts and a 75-word limit for video abstracts. No reference to the authors or the institution should appear within the body of the abstract or in the abstract title.
Important Notice: The following Abstract/Video Submission Policies will be firmly enforced:
- No Previously Published Submission: The abstract/video submitted must present original work that has not and will not be published or presented prior to the 2024 NASBS 33rd Annual Meeting.
- No Dual Submissions: The abstract/video must not have been submitted to any other upcoming meetings.
- No Previously Presented Data: All abstracts/videos must be new and original content OR include at least 50% new data if previously presented at a meeting.
- There is no limit to the number of abstracts/videos you may submit, but you may not submit a video abstract and a written abstract on the same study/data set. You must select either a written abstract submission or a video abstract submission.
- Abstracts/Videos can be edited until the submission site closes. After the submission site closes and the abstracts/videos go into review, the content of the abstracts/videos may not be edited in any way. Please make sure to proof read and double check your abstracts/videos before submission. In addition, NASBS cannot update the content/text of your abstract/video to include new/updated data after acceptance notifications, although you will be allowed to include these updated findings in your actual presentation.
