Submission Instructions

There are THREE areas in which to submit an abstract:
  1. RESEARCH (view format and subject categories)
  2. JUNIOR FACULTY CLINICAL CASE REPORTS (view format, categories and restrictions)

Each abstract may be submitted in only ONE of these areas. Submission of the same abstract into different categories is not permitted. Submission of one study as several different abstracts is not permitted. If the abstracts in question are not distinct enough to be considered separate studies, or if the same abstract is submitted into multiple categories, all versions may be rejected.

Please review the ISHLT Abstract Submission Policies prior to submitting your abstract.
