Abstracts will be peer-reviewed for presentation at the two-day event on October 27–28, held in conjunction with ACEP’s annual conference, ACEP14, in Chicago. Abstracts will be accepted that are judged scientifically valid and that yield important information that will ultimately affect patient care. Abstracts submitted or the resultant manuscripts must not appear in a referenced journal before publication of the meeting abstracts in the October 2014 issue of Annals of Emergency Medicine and must not have been presented at a national meeting.
New this year, all abstracts will be presented electronically. The top 20 will be selected for oral presentation in plenary-type sessions. Other accepted abstracts will be presented in topic specific small group sessions.
The Research Committee will review abstracts blinded to authors. Notification letters will be sent on or before July 1. The committee cannot give notification information by telephone.
The Emergency Medicine Foundation (EMF) will present an award at the Research Forum to the outstanding established researcher and a special award to an outstanding young investigator. An annual Excellence in Research Award (Best Paper) will be presented to an investigator based on the abstract, presentation, discussion, and subsequent of research manuscript. An annual Best Presentation by a Young Investigator Award will also be chosen. Investigators at the assistant professor level or below with fewer than five years of faculty appointment may request that their abstracts be considered for review in the young investigator category.
The Research Committee will also present awards for best medical student paper and best resident paper. The Best Medical Student Paper Award will be given to a medical student who is the primary investigator of an outstanding abstract presentation. The Best Resident Paper Award will be given to a resident who is the primary investigator of an outstanding abstract presentation. All four awards will be presented at the Research Forum. Note that presentation at an ACEP Scientific Assembly by EMF grant recipients does not constitute previous presentation at a national meeting.
