Eight awards will be presented for best posters:

  $1,000 each for the top 3 posters; and,

  $500 each for the next 5 posters.

Oral Abstract Presentations

General Sessions will include a number of oral abstract presentations during the 2021 annual meeting. Abstracts considered for oral presentation will be drawn from a select group of outstanding submissions. These Oral Abstract Presentations also will be considered for "best poster" awards.

Submission of isolated case reports and hypotheses unsupported by data is discouraged. SOHO reserves the right to reject any abstract for failure to comply with publication guidelines.

All those accepted for abstract/poster presentation will receive a complimentary registration. Note that reimbursement for travel and hotel expenses is not provided.

Abstract submissions must be made electronically through the Online Submission Page and uploaded in Microsoft Word format. Do not include tables, illustrations, graphs or figures with the abstract. Note, the abstract submission deadline is June 1, 2021!
