Submission Info

The Program Committee invites the submission of abstracts for presentation at its meetings. Authors need not be members of the Society in order to qualify for submission. The program will include scientific papers, open forums, original videos, scientific posters, and other electronic media from all specialists who are in some way involved with the use of minimally invasive surgical techniques.

Evaluation will be based on quality, clarity and relevance for our members, as well as the significance of the material, as judged by the Abstract Review Committee. Awards will be given for the best scientific papers, posters, and videos in various categories.

Please note: These requirements apply to all categories of submissions.

• All work must be original and unpublished. No materials should be submitted that have been previously presented or previously published.

• All persons whose papers are accepted by the Abstract Review Committee for presentation must be paid registrants and be present at the conference. In the event a substitute will take the place of the original presenter, SLS must be notified at least 4 weeks prior to the meeting and a disclosure affidavit must be completed/received for the substitute presenter. Scholarships are available for SLS Member Residents, Fellows-in-Training, Medical Students, and Affiliated Medical Personnel.

• Each author is limited to the submission of TWO ABSTRACTS as the primary author and/or presenter.

• An owner, medical director, or employee of a commercial interest, as defined by the ACCME, may not serve as an author and/or presenter during an accredited CME session. The ACCME defines a commercial interest as “any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients.” Those with a commercial interest as defined by the ACCME may be considered for participation in an Open Forum Non-CME session.

• According to ACCME & SLS Guidelines and Resolution of Conflict of Interest Policies, educational materials that are part of a CME activity, such as slides, abstracts and handouts, cannot contain any advertising, corporate logo, trade name or a product-group message of an ACCME-defined commercial interest.

• Any copyrighted material must be accompanied by a release authorizing duplication and display for educational purposes at meetings of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons. Any identifiable individuals in videos must have signed releases permitting medical videography. Please provide assurance that releases are available, if relevant.
