2020 AACO National Meeting
Speaker Instructions & Abstract Submission

Thank you for your interest in participating as a presenter at the 2020 AACO National Meeting in Las Vegas.  The Program Planners currently are accepting abstracts -- both for in-person and online presentations.  Please review the information below and use our online abstract submission process to submit your presentation.  

The 2020 AACO National Meeting will take place at Harrah's Casino Hotel in Las Vegas.  The conference will take place from Saturday, November 14 through Monday, November 16, 2020.  CLICK HERE for details about the conference.

At the present time, we are continuing to plan for a normal in-person meeting, as usual.  However, in the event that is not feasible due to health risks, we are planning to offer virtual courses.  In addition, even if an in-person meeting is able to happen, we will consider online "remote" presentations in which the speaker is not physically present at the conference.  If you wish to submit an abstract for this type of a remote talk, please be sure to mark the appropriate box on the submission form.

The deadline for submitting your abstract is June 30, 2020.
