About the Annual Meeting & OTO EXPOSM
Each year, the AAO-HNSF receives and reviews hundreds of abstracts and proposals submitted by otolaryngologists and healthcare professionals. If accepted, your proposal or abstract will be presented during this premier education event. Further, accepted Scientific Oral and Poster presentations will be published in the Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery journal.
- Members and nonmembers of the AAO-HNSF are eligible to submit an abstract or proposal.
- Abstracts describing original basic science and clinical work related to the broad area of otolaryngology diseases may be submitted.
- By submitting your abstract or proposal, you agree to participate if it is selected for presentation at the Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA.
