Call for Abstracts

We have limited spots available for consultant talks and registrar talks. All submitted abstracts will be considered for either a poster or oral presentation.

You are  invited to submit your abstracts for consideration in the final program of the APRASSA Congress and  ISAPS Symposium  2024. You have the choice to submit either an oral or poster presentation. Both presentation formats hold equal significance, but opting for a poster session allows us to accommodate more presenters.

Please note that depending on the number of abstracts received, the program committee may allocate some presentations to the poster session. Candidates selected for a poster presentation will receive detailed specifications for their posters.

We appreciate your participation and look forward to receiving abstracts for the APRASSA 2024 Congress.

The abstract deadline has been extended to 17 June 2024.
