Authors are invited to submit original emergency medicine research in a variety of categories, and will be strongly encouraged to identify the most appropriate category for the abstract at the time of submission. Only reports of original research may be submitted.  The data may not be published in a manuscript or e-publication prior to the first day of the Annual Meeting, except in abstract form when associated with a presentation at a non-emergency-medicine national conference, at CORD, or a regional SAEM meeting.  Abstracts for which data is not yet available will not be considered. We are pleased to announce that the abstract scoring criteria are publicly available for review.  

Abstracts accepted for presentation at the 2018 SAEM Annual Meeting will be published in the Academic Emergency Medicine (AEM) online supplement. SAEM strongly encourages authors to submit the full manuscripts that follow successful abstracts to AEM. AEM will notify authors of a decision regarding publication within 60 days of receipt of a manuscript.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at education@saem.org. We look forward to your abstract submissions for the SAEM 2018 Annual Meeting!
