Handling of Abstracts by SSAI 2013 Abstract Committee

The abstracts are evaluated and scored by the SSAI2013 Abstract Committee. The authors will be notified of the acceptance of the abstract by the date displayed below. The accepted abstracts will be published in a SSAI2013 Supplement of Acta Anaesthesiologica Scandinavica, which will be distributed to congress participants. The supplement will also be available as an electronic version to Acta Anaesthesiologica Scandinavica subscribers. However, the final acceptance of the abstract as well as the publication require the congress registration of the presenting author. NOTE! The registration and payment must be made by 28 May 2013.
All abstracts will be presented as posters, preceded with a short oral introduction.

ACTA best abstract prizes

Acta Anaesthesiologica Scandinavica has provided five abstract prizes.
First prize: DKK 25.000 (approx. EUR 3.350)
Second prize: DKK 15.000 (approx. EUR 2.000)
Three additional prizes: DKK 10.000 (approx. EUR 1.500) each
All presenters of an abstract during SSAI 2013 will be considered for the ACTA best abstract prizes.

The SSAI 2013 Abstract Committee will initially score the abstracts. The Abstract Prize Committee will then select the prize winner candidates among the highest scored abstracts, to be presented orally in a special prize competition session. The candidates for prizes will be informed a few weeks before the meeting, to allow sufficient time to prepare an oral presentation.
The final decision is made after the presentations in the oral prize competition session. Thus not only the scientific quality of the abstract but also the performance of the oral presentation will have an impact on the final decision.

ACTA best abstract prize competition session Wednesday 28 August

The ACTA best abstract prize competition session will be on Wednesday 28 August. Each oral presentation has 15 minutes allotted time, divided into 12 minutes of presentation and three minutes of discussion. These timelines must be followed. Standard audiovisual devices are provided.
The winners will be announced and prizes will be handed over in the Closing and Prize Award Ceremony on Thursday 28 August. All competitors are expected to be present.

Abstract submission deadline 17 April 2013 - Early registration date 12 June 2013
