Deadline for Abstract Submission: Tuesday, 19 October, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. EDT

Submission Areas

There are THREE areas in which to submit an abstract:



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.
