Why Submit Your Science to ASE 2013?
The annual showcase of investigators from around the world presenting cutting-edge research on the latest advances in cardiovascular ultrasound is a highlight of ASE’s Scientific Sessions. It offers opportunities for researchers to share important findings with colleagues and interact with leaders in the field. Benefits of abstract acceptance include:

Publication - Accepted abstracts of original work are published in a top-ranked cardiovascular journal, The Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography (JASE).

Awareness - Selected abstracts of original work are promoted to the health and science media in the top 50 markets. Past coverage has included CBS News, Washington Post and cardiovascular trade press, hitting 3.5 million readers!

Visibility - Experts in cardiovascular research see your science, and dedicated viewing times create opportunities to discuss your work with faculty and attendees.

Support - Travel stipends are available for qualified candidates and authors are eligible for low conference registration rates.

International Recognition - Young researchers meeting certain criteria are eligible to participate in the 2013 Arthur E. Weyman Young Investigator’s Award Competition. The winner will be invited to present his/her research at the 2013 European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging and 2014 Japanese Society of Echocardiography meetings.

Special Competitions to Recognize Exceptional Research - Investigators meeting certain criteria are eligible to participate in the 2013 Original Science Competitions, including the Arthur E. Weyman Young Investigator’s Award Competition for young investigators under the age of 40, and the new Sonographer Investigator’s Award Competition for sonographer investigators who served as the primary investigator on their project. All accepted abstracts of original work also compete for Best Poster Prizes, recognizing the best basic and clinical science posters presented at the meeting.

All accepted abstracts and cases will be available online prior to the meeting in the ASE 2013 Original Science Program Planner.

NEWAlso, clinical cases will be considered for presentation in the following category:

Clinical Cases Competition

New in 2013 – Clinical Cases Competition
ASE is encouraging abstract submissions in a new category where a clinical case is described that highlights the key role of cardiovascular ultrasound imaging in diagnosis, clinical decision making, and/or patient management. To apply, authors must submit an abstract based on their case presentation. Please note that the submission site will not accept video (.avi) files. Once the abstract of the case has been submitted, ASE staff will contact the presenting author directly to arrange submission of any accompanying video files. Up to two (2) video files will be permitted with each submission.Only abstracts submitted in the Clinical Cases Competition submission category will be considered. Five finalists will be selected to make an oral presentation of their case to a panel of luminary judges during an educational track session on Monday, July 1. The winner of the competition will then receive $200. Please review the Guidelines for Abstract Preparation and Submission before submitting your work.

Submission Fee
A non-refundable $15 processing fee will be required for each abstract submitted, payable online only. Purchase orders, checks and electronic bank transfers will not be accepted. This fee covers administration and online costs associated with the submission, grading, notification and slotting processes.

Selection Process
Submitted abstracts are peer-reviewed by a panel of graders. Abstract grading is blinded and selections for presentation are based solely on scientific merit.

Presentation Formats
All accepted abstracts of original work will be scheduled a poster presentation to display for one day in the ASE Exhibit and Poster Hall. Authors will be required to attend their poster during the dedicated poster viewing time for the session. Exceptional abstracts of original work may also be considered for an oral presentation during the educational sessions.

Finalists in the Clinical Cases Competition will be scheduled an oral presentation during the educational sessions.

Travel Grants for Abstract Presenters
Travel grants will be available for young abstract presenters with a demonstrated need to assist them in attending ASE’s Scientific Sessions and present their work. Application instructions and eligibility criteria will be provided to presenting authors in their March 15 notification of abstract acceptance.
