Welcome to the AAO-HNSF 2022 Call for Late-Breaking Science Submission Site

Submission Deadline Date is June 20, 2022

The AAO-HNSF 2022 Annual Meeting Program Committee recognizes that the results of some exciting research may not have been available in time to meet the general abstract submission deadline, such as COVID-19 related research.

To further enrich the Annual Meeting program, the committee has opened a call for late-breaking abstract submissions seeking ALL research that is novel, innovative, contemporary, and of high scientific significance.

Late-breaking scientific oral presentations will be a series of six-minute presentations followed by two-minutes of questions and answers. Submissions should be either clinical or basic/translational. They are limited to a maximum of six authors, including the presenting and senior authors identified.

Specific Criteria:
  • A limited number of late-breaking abstracts will be accepted.
  • The research must be novel, innovative, contemporary, and of high scientific significance to deserve special consideration after the original abstract deadline.
  • Abstracts should describe either large clinical investigations or high-impact translational research that could not be completed prior to the original deadline.
  • You will be required to answer the question, “Why is this abstract considered late-breaking?”
  • Late-breaking abstracts must not be a revision of an abstract submitted prior to the original submission deadline.
  • Late-breaking abstracts must not have been presented, accepted for presentation, or published at any other scientific meeting or journal at the time of submission.
  • Submitted abstracts are considered CONFIDENTIAL and EMBARGOED from the time of submission. For a study to be eligible for presentation, information contained in the abstract, as well as additional data and information to be presented about the study, may not be made public before the findings have been presented/published in compliance with the embargo policy.
  • All Scientific Oral presentations at the Annual Meeting become the property of the AAO-HNSF. In accordance with AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting presentation requirements, they must be submitted as full-length articles (not just an abstract) to Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery, the official journal of the AAO-HNSF.

Before submitting your proposal, please be sure to read the Submission Guidelines in their entirety, as they will help guide you through the criteria and requirements.

AAO-HNSF encourages submissions that promote gender diversity and include members of underrepresented communities, as well as topics relevant to diversity, equity, inclusion, and cultural competence.
