Commitment to Present
Submission of an abstract constitutes a commitment by the author(s) to 1) bring an appropriately formatted abstract poster to showcase in the poster hall, 2) be present in the poster hall at the Welcome Reception and all session breaks to answer attendee questions, and 3) conduct an oral presentation if selected as the winning abstract for the category (i.e. Best of Surgery Abstract). Failure to present, if not justified, will jeopardize acceptance of future abstract submissions. Only the primary author or co-author may present the accepted abstract at the 2020 Advances in IBD Conference.

The conference will withdraw abstracts upon written notification from the submitting author by October 15, 2020. If circumstances prevent attendance, the primary author must arrange for the poster to be in the poster hall and/or presented by a co-author. Acceptance of the abstract obligates the author to present the paper.
