The Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2024 abstract submission period is underway, and we want to help you meet the Thursday, Nov. 30 deadline. Below, we’ve answered some of the frequently asked questions about abstract submission, and additional questions and answers are available on the DDW website. Need help submitting your abstract? Check out this tutorial video.
Q: What abstracts are eligible to submit?
A: Abstracts containing basic, clinical or translational research findings in the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy or gastrointestinal surgery may be submitted. Abstracts that are not eligible include those that were:
- Presented at previous DDW meetings.
- Presented at the AASLD Liver Meeting.
- Published as an article or accepted for publication upon the Nov. 30 deadline.
Q: Is there an online presentation option if I can’t attend in person?
A: Authors of accepted abstracts are required to present in person in Washington, D.C. Livestreamed or pre-recorded video presentations will not be permitted. If you’re unable to attend in person, select the “ePoster only” option when submitting. If selected, ePoster presenters are required to register for DDW and upload an ePoster file to the DDW ePosters site.
Q: Are case reports accepted?
A: AASLD and SSAT are accepting case report submissions from all authors.
ASGE is accepting case reports submitted by fellows and trainees that involve five or fewer patients and have pertinent training points or amplify clinical experiences. More details can be found in the abstract submission guidelines, under “Additional ASGE Rules.”
AGA is not accepting case report submissions for the 2024 meeting.
Q: When are disclosures due?
A: The deadline for completing co-author disclosures is 15:00 Eastern time (UTC –5) on Wednesday, Dec. 20, 2023. It is the submitting author’s responsibility to ensure that all co-authors submit their financial disclosure. Submitting authors are not permitted to submit a disclosure on a co-author’s behalf. We’ve also created a tutorial video for the disclosure process.
