2017 Late Breaker Abstract Submission Guidelines

Call for Late Breaker Abstracts is August 4th!

Please join us for the ACE 2017 Annual Meeting! ACE invites the submission of late breaker abstracts for consideration for poster presentations at our Annual Meeting, which will be held at the Westin Hotel at the Canal, New Orleans, Louisiana, September 24–26, 2017. You won’t want to miss this event, featuring NIAID Director Dr. Anthony S. Fauci as the keynote speaker.

The theme for this year's ACE Annual Meeting is "The Methods of Translating and Disseminating Epidemiology into Public Health." Ideally, all public health policies and practices should be supported by evidence-based science. Epidemiological studies that have or can contribute to improvements in public health policy or practice and contributions addressing research or dissemination methodologies are desired. Abstracts addressing the meeting theme are particularly encouraged; however, submissions from other areas of epidemiology are also welcome.  Authors do not need to be a Member or Fellow of ACE to submit an abstract.
