PCSA is collecting abstract submissions for the PCSA Annual Meeting which will be held at The Portola Hotel & Spa in Monterey, February 2-5, 2023. Abstracts will be accepted from June 1 through September 6, 2022 at 10:00 am PDT.
The 2023 PCSA meeting will be held February 2-5, 2023, at The Portola Hotel & Spa at Monterey Bay. The Program Committee encourages abstract submission of your top scientific effort for presentation at the meeting.
Abstracts may be submitted for Podium or Brief-Podium presentation format. All submissions must have at least one PCSA member as author, co-author, or sponsor. Submissions without a PCSA member author or PCSA member sponsor will not be reviewed.
Abstract Submission Guidelines
Abstracts must conform to the exact size and format specified in the Abstract Submission Form.
Abstracts may not exceed 250 words. Abstracts that are too brief or contain insufficient data will not be considered favorably by the Program Committee.
Figures, tables, and images attached to accepted abstract submissions will not be printed in the Proceedings.
Do not use any special characters within your abstract submission.
To enable blinded review, do not reference identifying information in the body of the abstract.
Abstracts using data in a concurrent submission elsewhere or published previously will not be reviewed, with the exception of work submitted to the ACS Surgical Forum.
If you select a Podium Presentation, you may automatically be considered for a Brief-Podium Presentation if your abstract is not selected for the podium.

Each question must have four multiple choice answers. True/false, all of the above, none of the above, both a and b, etc. answer types are not allowed. One question must be formatted as a case-based question. Please include the correct answer when supplying the multiple choices. Access the multiple-choice guidelines here.
