Symposium on Advanced Wound Care Spring (SAWC Spring) 2024 - Abstract Submission Submission Portal

SAWC Spring 2024 is accepting abstract submissions through January 3, 2024.

The Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) is committed to providing the highest level of clinical education and information for physicians, nurses, physical therapists, researchers, podiatrists, and dietitians involved in wound healing or wound care issues.

To be accepted to present an oral or poster abstract during the upcoming SAWC meeting, each proposed presentation must be described in an abstract. These abstracts are blind-reviewed by a panel of expert judges. Each abstract will be reviewed based on specific criteria for the category in which it is placed. Therefore, it is very important for the author to specify which category the abstract should be entered.

Abstract Presentations

You may select one of the three (3) presentation types for consideration:
Additionally, you may also select to be considered for RAPID FIRE: Poster Talks or the Young Investigators Award.
