Call for Abstracts

Once again, it is time to issue the annual Call for Abstracts. Our Annual Meeting is special this year in that it is a joint meeting with the International Association of Pancreatology. The meeting will take place at the Eden Roc Hotel in Miami Beach, FL from October 31 – November 3.

Abstracts must be received no later than June 22, 2018 to be considered for presentation at the meeting. Abstracts will be accepted electronically via our website. If you wish to have your abstract published in Pancreas, the official journal of the American Pancreatic Association, please indicate this on the submission form. The submission fee for each abstract is $60 and is required for each abstract, whether published or not. When you have submitted your abstract electronically, you will be able to pay the abstract fee with a credit card through PayPal. Alternatively, you may also mail a check, payable to American Pancreatic Association, for each abstract submitted.

Last year, we awarded over 42 Travel Scholarships to Young Investigators and we hope to do even more this year. The application will be available soon and has the same June 22 deadline as the abstracts. We want to remind you that applicants who will be the presenting author on a submitted abstract are considered the most competitive to receive these awards.

The program committee is working hard on the program and as always, it promises to be an exciting meeting. We will again have several mini-symposia interspersed throughout the meeting in addition to our abstract-driven sessions.

TAdditional information regarding the program and registration is forthcoming. Any suggestions about the meeting are always appreciated. Please email your suggestions to apa@miami.edu. We look forward to seeing you in October!
