ASGBI call for abstracts 2017 – now open!!




The Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland is hosting its next annual International Surgical Congress from Wednesday 3rd to Friday 5th May 2017 at the SECC in Glasgow. This will be the eighth time in the Association’s history that the annual meeting will be held in Glasgow. Scotland’s largest city is lively, full of character and is renowned for the friendliness and fun of the local population. With excellent access by train and air from all parts of the UK and abroad, Glasgow is an excellent venue to host the 2017 meeting.   As in previous years, we will be teaming up with other sub-specialty surgical associations to put on an exciting and topical Scientific Programme, and will be hosting the Association of Trauma & Military Surgeons Annual Scientific Meeting, to form Glasgow Surgical Week under the theme of ‘Safer Surgery’.   The ASGBI and ATMS categories for 2017 are listed below. Please only submit an abstract to ONE conference.

Why submit your abstract?

If all that Glasgow Surgical Week has to offer isn’t quite enough to entice you to submit, just remember that you could be presenting your paper at what is believed to be the largest annual gathering of surgeons this side of the Atlantic. Your abstract will also appear as a citeable reference in the online British Journal of Surgery Congress Supplement, something which will greatly enhance any CV.
