IMPORTANT Please read instructions below before submitting your work.  

The Scientific Program Committee is now accepting abstract submissions for papers and posters for the 75th Annual Meeting to be held virtually on Friday, September 17 to Sunday, September 19, 2021.

Abstracts for the general scientific program and the Poliquin Resident Competition will only be accepted via the link above.  Presentations for the general program include scientific papers and posters only.  This year, workshops will be managed by the CSOHNS Sub-specialty groups. The entire program, including the abstracts, will be published on this website.

The deadline for all abstract submissions is THURSDAY, JULY 15, 2021.

All submissions to the general program will be reviewed by the Scientific Program Committee, chaired by Dr. Vincent Lin.  No names and/or affiliations should be included in the title or body of the abstract – if these are present, your abstract will not be reviewed.  Maximum abstract length is 250 words in the structured format (background, method, results and conclusion).  All submissions must include learning objectives.  Guidelines on how to write learning objectives are available on this website at https://www.entcanada.org/education/active-members/

All authors are required to complete the Disclosure Declaration.  This delaration is included as part of the online abstract submission form.
