Dear Colleagues:

The 20th Annual Academic Surgical Congress (ASC) will take place February 11-13, 2025, at the Virgin Hotels Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada. We were so proud of the outstanding 19th Annual ASC this past February and it was only possible with your engagement and each of you submitting your best work. Next February we are excited to gather together and share our work. Our continued growth and success depend on you!

The ASC is always the best venue to hear and discuss the latest scientific advances in all disciplines of academic surgery, and the quality of the meeting depends on the submission of your best work. The breadth of work being presented includes topics in education, clinical outcomes, health services research, as well as basic and translational science. We are actively working to again provide a strong program, which will be engaging and inspiring from start to finish.

The ASC, which is jointly sponsored by the Association for Academic Surgery (AAS) and the Society of University Surgeons (SUS), will accept abstract submissions until the deadline on Friday, August 9, 2024. As in previous years, abstracts will be considered for presentation in full or quickshot oral format. Full oral talks will consist of an 8-minute presentation followed by 4-minutes of discussion. The quick shot talks consist of a 3-minute oral presentation, 5 slides maximum, and 2 minutes of discussion. Please note, we will not accept case studies this year.

Given our record-breaking abstract submission numbers over the past few years-and in order to maximize the number of participants in the ASC - we will continue to limit the number of abstracts that an individual first author may present to TWO presentations. There is no limit to the number of abstracts that may be submitted, and if more than two abstracts are accepted the two highest scoring abstracts will be selected for presentation. Please note that there is no limit on the number of abstracts in which an author may be included as a middle or senior author.

Abstracts accepted for presentation at the ASC are eligible for full manuscript submission to the Journal of Surgical Research (AAS) and Surgery (SUS). To be considered for AAS Awards, manuscripts must be submitted to the Journal of Surgical Research (JSR) by December 1, 2024. Authors must select 'VSI:ASC 2025' as the article type and include a reference to the ASC 2025 meeting in the cover letter just before the references. Otherwise, ASC manuscripts may be submitted to the Journal of Surgical Research (JSR) within 1 year of the ASC (due February 11, 2026) or Surgery by March 7, 2025 for special meeting related consideration.

We hope that each of you will make plans to join us in person in Las Vegas, Nevada next year!

With very best wishes,
