Welcome to the AAO-HNSF 2024 Call for Submission Site

Dear Colleagues,

We can't wait to welcome you to the AAO-HNSF 2024 Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Miami, Florida, next fall to renew friendships, engage the vibrant global otolaryngology community, learn from trusted experts, debate the most pressing issues in the field, and push our science ever forward.

The American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF) invites you to submit an education proposal and/or scientific abstract for presentation during the AAO-HNSF 2024 Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO. The Annual Meeting presents otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeons and related healthcare professionals worldwide a full breadth of education opportunities focused on leading-edge clinical techniques, tools, and groundbreaking scientific discoveries, shared by experts in the otolaryngology community.

Before submitting your proposal, please be sure to read the Submission Guidelines in their entirety, as they will help guide you through the criteria and requirements that are applicable to each of the submission categories. You are also encouraged to review and submit a topic based on the list of promoted gaps in practice.

The Call for Science submission site will be open through January 29, 2024, 11:59 pm (ET). This timeframe is inclusive of all program formats:
  • Expert Lectures
  • International Symposium
  • Master of Surgery Video Presentations
  • Panel Presentations
  • Scientific Posters
  • Scientific Oral Presentations
  • Simulation Presentations
To request a copy of your abstract from last year, please email

Although the presentation platforms offered at the 2024 Annual Meeting will not change from this past year, there are a few important updates to consider:
  1. CARE EQUITY: This year, we will be refocusing our Patient Safety and Quality Improvement track as the new Care Equity, Quality, and Safety track. The Annual Meeting Program Committee is seeking submissions to the track that broadly address the problem of care inequity. We will particularly favor Scientific and Panel Presentations that consider solutions to move our field forward and ensure that patients have access to equitable care regardless of their social determinants of health.
  2. LATE-BREAKING SCIENTIFIC SUBMISSIONS: The number of accepted late-breaking abstracts for Scientific Oral presentation will be quite limited and there will be no late-breaking Poster presentations. We therefore expect that the late-breaking scientific presentation review will be considerably more competitive than the regular submission review.
  3. COMMUNITY VOICES: We continue to seek broad expertise from our field during the Expert Lecture series and Panel Presentations and encourage submissions that incorporate voices representative of the diversity of our community and the patients we serve.
Thank you for your willingness to share your expertise with colleagues around the world at this historic meeting.
