ORAL | Oral presentations are the highest level of podium presentation achievement. Abstracts submitted as ORAL are required to submit a manuscript to The American Surgeon if accepted for podium presentation. If your abstract is not selected as an Oral presentation, it will automatically be considered for a Quickshot Oral presentation.

VIDEO | Video submissions must not exceed 8 minutes in length, sound is optional and the file must be submitted as a MP4 or MOV format. As part of the video submission process, a written abstract must be submitted. New – accepted videos may now submit to The American Surgeon for publication!

QUICKSHOT ORAL  | Quickshot Oral submissions will be considered for non-podium presentation opportunities.


Abstracts that have been previously presented at a state or local level are permitted to submit to the SESC, contingent that the prior presentation did not result in formal publication. Prior presentation at any national meeting precludes submission.


If you need to make changes to your abstract after you submit/finalize, or if you need technical assistance, please email support@knowledgeconnex.com.
