CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Abstracts and Bigger-Lehman Submission Information

Our 2020 Annual Meeting will take place May 15 & 16, 2020 at the beautiful Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia. This will be a joint meeting between the Virginia Surgical Society & Virginia Chapter, American College of Surgeons.


ABSTRACTS

Clinical and basic science research, clinical studies, innovative techniques or case presentations will be considered for the program. We will again dedicate a portion of the program to interesting community-based papers. These submissions must describe an established technique that one has done a number of times and has been found helpful. If you are submitting a "How I Do It" abstract, please indicate that. The abstract deadline for the 2020 program is Wednesday, January 8, 2020. 


Please note that presenting your work at the VSS meeting does not preclude presentation at other conferences.
 

POSTER PRESENTATIONS

Abstracts can be submitted as either oral or poster presentations.  Please indicate the submission type in your email subject- oral, poster or both. A first and second place award will be given to the top two poster presentations ($100 and $50 respectively). 
 

BIGGER-LEHMAN SUBMISSIONS

This award is given to two surgical Residents and/or Fellows in an approved surgical program in the Commonwealth.  A complete manuscript that has not been previously published must be submitted by the January 8 deadline. There will be a first place ($500) and a second place ($250) winner. The winners are expected to present their papers at the 2020 annual meeting.  The Society will cover reasonable travel expenses to attend the conference.
