The Scientific Program Service and Scientific Review Committee will be responsible for selecting oral and poster presentations. Oral presentations will be presented throughout the main scientific session and a short video may be incorporated into an oral podium presentation. Accepted abstracts may be published in the Final Program, on the AHNS website and on the JAMA Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery website.

  • You may not submit abstracts/data or updated versions of abstracts/data that were already submitted for the initial Call For Abstracts for the AHNS 11th International Conference on Head and Neck Cancer
  • No Previously Published/Presented Submissions (Encore Abstracts): The abstract submitted must present original work that has not and will not be presented prior to the AHNS 11th International Conference on Head and Neck Cancer.

The exception to this rule is that a manuscript may be submitted to JAMA Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery for special meeting related consideration only after the abstract has been accepted by AHNS for presentation. Manuscripts may not be submitted to any journals for consideration until after AHNS abstract acceptance notification. If the manuscript has been submitted to any journal prior to AHNS abstract acceptance notifications, the Abstract Submitter, Presenter and Senior Author will forfeit the privilege to submit, present, or be listed as an author on abstracts for the 2024 and 2025 AHNS Annual Meetings.

AHNS Policy on Owner/Employee of Ineligible Companies

The ACCME states "the owners and employees of ineligible companies are considered to have unresolvable financial relationships and must be excluded from participating as planners or faculty, and must not be allowed to influence or control any aspect of the planning, delivery, or evaluation of accredited continuing education, except in the limited circumstances outlined in Standard 3.2."
