Scientific Sessions Abstract Submissions

Submissions for 2020 will be accepted until December 2, 2019. Authors of abstracts accepted will be notified in January, 2020.

If your abstract is accepted for presentation, do you grant permission for your powerpoint presentation to be accessible on the FVS website?
If your abstract is selected for presentation at the Florida Vascular Society 33rd Annual Scientific Sessions, do you agree to allow the Florida Vascular Society to consider your abstract for inclusion in their submission to be printed in the Annals of Vascular Surgery?

RULES FOR SUBMISSION: Abstracts submitted to the Florida Vascular Society for consideration for the Annual Meeting program must be original work and must not have been published or presented at a national or regional meeting. It is acceptable to submit work that has been presented at local meetings or as a poster, provided it has not been published. No reference should be made on or in the actual abstract to the names or institutions of the authors, only on the title page, as the abstract review process is conducted “blindly”, in that the reviewers do not know the origin of the work. Non-member authors must list the name of a member sponsor.
