Abstract submission guidelines


JSCO2022 will hold the new “Frontier” session, aiming to make JSCO’s annual meeting a place where ground-breaking evidence in clinical trials is presented.
We invite you to submit abstracts to the session after reading the session outline and submission guidelines below.


Session outline (planned)

・Language: English only (including abstracts, slides, presentations and Q&A)
・Presentation length: Approximately 10-15 minutes per abstract (including Q&A)
・For each category, discussions will be held with the chairperson, presenters and discussants appointed by JSCO2022.


Abstracts must report new information not previously presented elsewhere.
We encourage abstracts in a wide range of areas, e.g. gastroenterology, hepatology, surgery, urology, gynecology, head and neck surgery, respiratory and rare diseases.
Submitted abstracts that are not selected for the Frontier session will be considered for a relevant international session.
This session will be held in hybrid format, in person and online.
Delegates outside Japan who wish to attend (online) only this session can attend free of charge (pre-registration is required).
