Abstract Submissions

Present and publish* your new study or research during the 2023 ACSM through ePosters or oral presentations.

All abstract submissions are peer-reviewed by the Committee on Scientific Program, and accepted abstracts will be invited to submit an electronic poster (ePoster). A small number of high-scoring abstracts will be accepted as an oral presentation.  

Evaluation of abstracts will be based on the following considerations:

  • scientific merit
  • originality
  • relevance to obstetrics and gynecology
  • original work, not previously published or presented at non-ACOG scientific meetings**


*Accepted abstracts for ACSM 2023 will be published in the Green Journal Annual Meeting Supplement.

**Work currently under peer review with an anticipated publication date after May 19, 2023, may be submitted.

Film Submissions

Showcase your innovative work in the field of obstetrics and gynecology as visual narratives by submitting a short film to be considered for inclusion in the 2023 ACSM film festival sessions.

Only films of 7 minutes or less in duration will be considered for presentation at the Film Festival. Please note that any films longer than 7 minutes will be automatically withdrawn from consideration. At least one author of an accepted submission will be required to attend and present the film at ACSM 2023. You are encouraged to submit films even if they have been submitted for other meetings (including ACOG District meetings).

All films must be HIPAA compliant, with all references to patient identity removed.  Any film that contains any identifying patient information will not be considered.

If your film is surgical in nature, you may want to consider submitting a surgical tutorial session proposal, an hour-long session with a more in-depth exploration of technique and lecture Please see the call for surgical tutorials linked here.

Stump the Professors

Do you have a unique and challenging case that will stump our leading expert professors? Junior Fellows are encouraged to submit your cases to present at the 2023 ACSM. Four cases will be selected for the 2023 Annual Clinical and Scientific Meeting.

Winners will receive 50% off registration to the 2023 ACSM and are expected to be on-site to present on Sunday, May 21, 2023. Full presentation (PowerPoint) to be shared with the Clinical and Scientific Program General Program Chair by April 17, 2023.
