Our 2021 Annual Meeting will take place May 21 & 22, 2021 at the Hilton Alexandria Old Town. This will be a joint meeting with the DC Chapter of the American College of Surgeons. The VSS Research & Scholarship Committee invites you to submit an abstract to be considered for presentation in the program. The deadline for the 2021 program is Monday, January 18, 2021.
Clinical and basic science research, clinical studies, innovative techniques or case presentations will be considered for the program. We will also dedicate a portion of the program to "How I Do It" submissions, which are interesting community-based papers that describe an established technique that one has done a number of times and has been found helpful. The abstract deadline for the 2021 program is Monday, January 18, 2021.
Please note that presenting your work at the Annual Meeting does not preclude presentation at other conferences.
Abstracts can be submitted as either oral or poster presentations. Please indicate the submission type in your email subject - oral, poster or either.
A first and second place award will be given to the top two oral presentations ($250 and $150 respectively) as well as to the top two poster presentations ($100 and $50 respectively).
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 18 deadline. There will be a first place ($500) and a second place ($250) winner. The winners are expected to present their papers at the 2021 annual meeting. The VSS Research & Scholarship Committee will cover reasonable travel expenses to attend the conference.
