Welcome to the AAO-HNSF 2024 Call for Late-Breaking Science Submission Site

Submission Deadline Date is June 10, 2024

The 2024 Annual Meeting Program Committee (AMPC) recognizes that the results of some exciting research may not have been available in time to meet the general abstract submission deadline. To further enrich the Annual Meeting scientific program, the committee has opened a call for late-breaking abstract submissions seeking ALL research that is novel, innovative, contemporary, and of high scientific significance for presentation at the AAO-HNSF 2024 Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO, September 28 – October 1, in Miami, Florida.

Late-breaking Scientific Oral Presentations will be five-minutes in length. Submissions should be either clinical or basic/translational. They are limited to a maximum of six authors, including the presenting and senior authors identified at the time of submission.

Specific Criteria:
  • A limited number of late-breaking abstracts will be accepted for Scientific Oral Presentation.
  • The research must be novel, innovative, contemporary, and of high scientific significance to deserve special consideration after the original abstract deadline.
  • Abstracts should describe either large clinical investigations or high-impact translational research that could not be completed prior to the original deadline.
  • You will be required to answer the question, “Why is this abstract considered late-breaking?”
  • Late-breaking abstracts must not be a revision of an abstract submitted prior to the original submission deadline unless previously withdrawn for consideration or given specific permission.
  • Late-breaking abstracts must not have been presented or accepted for presentation at any other scientific meeting or published in any other journal at the time of submission and are subject to the same Annual Meeting presentation and publication embargo rules outlined in the original 2024 Call for Science.
  • Submitted abstracts are considered CONFIDENTIAL and EMBARGOED from the time of submission. For a study to be eligible for presentation, information contained in the abstract, as well as additional data and information to be presented about the study, may not be made public before the findings have been presented/published in compliance with the embargo policy.
  • Full manuscripts of Scientific Oral Presentations must be submitted to the journal, Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery for publication consideration. Authors of Poster Presentations seeking publication must first submit their manuscript to Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery for peer review consideration. If manuscripts are not accepted by Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery for publication, the authors can seek publication in another journal.
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.

AAO-HNSF encourages submissions that promote gender diversity and include members of underrepresented communities, as well as topics relevant to diversity, equity, inclusion, and cultural competence.
