Abstracts can be submitted by SRS Members and Non-Members.

By submitting to the 29th IMAST, authors are agreeing that at least one author will attend the meeting for which the submission is accepted and will be available to present on the date and at the time assigned by the organizing committees. Authors will be notified of presentation times at the time of or shortly after notification of acceptance and are expected to make appropriate travel arrangements to ensure that at least one of the authors will be in attendance. In addition, presenting authors are expected to register to attend the meetings for which they are accepted by the deadline set forth in their acceptance notification. Submissions for which an author is not pre-registered by the dates set forth with automatically be withdrawn from the program. All faculty within the education sessions are expected to be registered and present live at the meeting venue. Details about registration fees for faculty will be sent with the formal invitation.

All selected authors will be required to complete a formal acceptance process by January 2022 to confirm the invitation to participate in the program.  You will be able to access this acceptance process from this guidelines page as well once notifications have been posted.

Oral Presentation Cancellation & No-Show Policy
If an author or co-author is not able to attend the meeting to present in person, it is expected that the submission be withdrawn in advance of the meeting (by February 1, 2022) so that an alternate paper may be substituted.  In the case of a “no-show” oral presentation, please note that all authors and co-authors associated with the “no-show” paper will be prohibited from presenting any papers at the next two IMAST or Annual Meetings.

E-Poster Cancellation Policy
At least one author or co-author on all E-Posters are expected to register to attend the meetings for which they are accepted by the deadline set forth in their acceptance notification. If this author cancels their registration prior to the meeting, the E-Poster may be withdrawn from the program.

Advanced Presentation Submission Requirement
All presentations must clear a CME review conducted by the SRS CME Committee. Presenters may be required to submit slides for review before the meeting and may be asked to make small or significant changes if a bias issue is found. Failure to address pertinent CME review issues will result in pulling the presentation from the program and a one year ban for abstract presentations and a three-year ban for invited presentations.

All abstract authors will be required to submit a Financial Disclosure Statement and FDA Disclosure Form during the online submission process. In the event that all authors on an abstract have not completed these required forms prior to the submission deadline of November 1, 2021 for IMAST the abstract will NOT be reviewed or considered for inclusion in either the IMAST or Annual Meeting programs. No exceptions will be made.  Education Session submitters will complete these forms later in the review process.

All submitters will be notified via email of the status of their submission(s).  In the event that you do not receive notifications, please log into the submission site at ANY time to view any recent mail regarding your submissions.
