#OTOMTG22 Call for Science

December 6, 2021 – January 28, 2022

Each year, the AAO-HNSF receives and reviews thousands of abstracts and proposals submitted by otolaryngologists and healthcare professionals. It is the goal to ensure the education programs offered at the Annual Meeting are engaging, significant, relevant, and of high quality, leaving attendees feeling equipped with the knowledge, tools, and resources to advance patient care and implement real change within the otolaryngology-head and neck surgery community.

Several topics were identified in a comprehensive gap analysis, and clear learning needs have been identified for each of these topics. Abstracts addressing one or more of these topics will be given special consideration during the review and selection process.

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 that are applicable to each of the submission categories.

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.

This timeframe is inclusive of all program formats:

  • International Symposium
  • Expert Lectures
  • Scientific Oral Presentations
  • Scientific Posters
  • Master of Surgery Video Presentations
  • Panel Presentations
