Organizing a Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM) takes a whole lot of time and a whole lot of long-range planning.
Thus, members of the SVS Postgraduate Education Committee (PGEC) have already evaluated the 90 submitted proposals (an SVS record) for educational sessions at VAM 2024. And Program Committee members, who select the scientific abstracts, are looking ahead to the November opening of the abstract-submission site.
Researchers can submit abstracts for possible inclusion from Nov. 15 through Jan. 10, 2024.
“The science is a critical part of the Vascular Annual Meeting,” said Program Committee Chair Andres Schanzer, MD. “While VAM of course offers opportunities for participants to get together for meetings, exhibits, dinners, catching up with friends and casual events, the scientific and educational sessions continue to be a main highlight. We received the most PGEC submissions in the history of the meeting and hopefully will do the same with the upcoming scientific abstract submissions.”
Many VAM sessions feature abstract presentations, including the large-scale plenary sessions; the International Young Surgeons and International Poster competitions; the International Fast Talk and International Forum scientific sessions; the Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Society (VESS) presentations; the “How I Do It” video session; and the Poster Competition.
VAM 2024 will be held June 19–22 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Educational sessions will run across all four days.
