Annual Meeting Abstract Information



The Call for Abstracts is closed. The Abstract Submission Site is open for authors to view their submitted abstract. 

When can I expect to be notified whether or not my abstract was accepted? We are in the process of sending acceptance notifications. Annual Meeting and Basic Science Focus Forum Paper acceptances will be sent first, followed by Posters and International Trauma Care Forum Papers. Once the program has been finalized by the Program Committee and all presenters have agreed to present, notifications will be sent to those whose abstracts were not accepted.
