Abstract Submission

The abstract submission site for the American Auditory Society's 45th Annual Scientific & Technology Conference is now closed.

Types of submissions accepted online include:

PODIUM PRESENTATIONS:
 The podium presentations report results of original basic and clinical research. Research is defined as experimental or clinical work in which data were collected in accordance with scientific standards, and in amounts consistent with accepted scientific practice. Unique case studies, of only the highest caliber, will be considered. If the research involved use of a commercial product, features of the product may be described only to the extent necessary for informing the audience regarding the methodology of the scientific work. This presentation should not be used for purposes of describing features of a commercial product, or for describing marketing or distribution strategies.

GENERAL POSTER PRESENTATIONS: General poster presentations report results of original basic and clinical research.  Research is defined as experimental or clinical work in which data were collected in accordance with scientific standards and in amounts consistent with accepted scientific practice.  If the research involved use of a commercial product, features of the product may be described only to the extent necessary for informing the audience regarding the methodology of the scientific work.  This presentation should not be used for purposes of describing features of a commercial product or for describing marketing or distribution strategies.

NIH-FUNDED MENTORED RESEARCH POSTER PRESENTATIONS: Posters accepted for presentation in this category recognize and promote doctoral (graduate students in Audiology, Hearing Science, Biomedical Engineering or related fields, or medical students working in these areas) and post-doctoral (Otolaryngology residents) mentored research programs by providing an opportunity to present work in a poster format. Posters provide a unique opportunity to receive individualized input from peers and mentoring scientists in the context of a multidisciplinary, small meeting environment. Twenty poster submissions will be selected for NIH-funded travel support. Additional, non-funded submissions will be accepted. 



NIH-FUNDED T35 POSTER PRESENTATIONS:  Posters submitted as a part of the NIH-funded T35 Research Traineeship Program.

NEW INVESTIGATOR PRESENTATIONS:  Posters or podiums accepted for presentation in this category recognize and support new investigators who have completed a doctoral degree (or post-doc training or residency). Applicants with appointments in academic programs should be at junior faculty levels (e.g., instructor, assistant professor).  All applicants must have completed a degree in an area of research falling within the mission of the American Auditory Society.  Applicants must be members in good standing of the AAS. Submissions will be reviewed competitively and selections made by the Program Abstract Review Committee for AAS-funded travel support.
