Indiana Chapter of the American College of Surgeons
68th Annual Scientific Meeting, Saturday, May 15, 2021
Embassy Suites Noblesville Indianapolis Conference Center
Submission Deadline: Monday, March 1, 2021
Dear Fellows, Associates, Residents and Students:
It is time once again to call for abstracts for the Annual Meeting of the Indiana Chapter American College of Surgeons (INACS). The format for the meeting will be a single full day session on Saturday May 15, 2021. We are planning a virtual component so there may be some presentation alternatives.
We are seeking four types of submissions: (1) Research abstracts (clinical or basic science); (2) Surgical Video; (3) Interesting cases; and (4) Poster session
As you know, our 2020 meeting was cancelled. For those who submitted their work in 2020, we welcome you to resubmit for 2021. We will also accept abstracts for interesting (complex, innovative procedures/therapies, novel cases) as well as submissions for involvement in the poster session.
Fellow, Associate, Resident, and Student Chapter members are invited to submit an Abstract Submission Form accompanied by an abstract on a single 8 ½” x 11” sheet of paper that should include a title, the names of authors, one learning objective, and abstract text. Previously presented but not published data is acceptable and may be submitted.
Surgical Videos may involve interesting or difficult cases or “How-I-Do-It” educational content. Draft videos (unedited) are acceptable for initial submission; however, only the edited version will be eligible for presentation. Videos presented by Residents/students are eligible for the Resident Competition.
The Resident/Student Paper Competition awards four cash prizes: The Willis Dew Gatch award for General Surgery; The Leonard Ensminger and R. Morton Bolman awards for Trauma; and the Carl H. McCaskey award for Surgical Subspecialty. The best abstracts will be selected for oral/video presentation at the Resident/Student Paper Competition at the Annual Meeting. This work is to be presented by the residents (fellows) and students.
Submission forms and abstracts can be emailed to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to Tom Dixon at: 317-666-4294.
