We invite you to submit an abstract and have the unique opportunity to have your work reviewed by experts in the field of endocrinology.

The AACE Annual Scientific & Clinical Congress draws hundreds of abstracts submitted by endocrinologists and other health care professionals from around the world. If accepted, your abstract will be published as a supplement to AACE’s medical journal, Endocrine Practice.

Abstracts may be submitted by AACE members or non-members sponsored by an AACE member.  Endocrinologists, endocrine fellows-in-training, residents in internal medicine, surgery, or pediatrics, and medical students are eligible to apply for membership. You can apply for AACE membership online at https://www.aace.com/membership/join.

Please take a moment to read all of the guidelines prior to beginning the submission process.


Accepted abstracts will be published in a supplement to AACE’s  peer-reviewed journal, Endocrine Practice, available for viewing online.  Abstracts will be accepted for publication only, poster presentation, or oral presentation.  Top scoring abstracts will be considered for oral presentation and ePoster.

Oral Presentations

Top scoring abstracts will be selected for Oral Presentations based on merit and significance to the science and practice of Endocrinology, as well as their creativity and uniqueness. The Oral Presentations will be held on Thursday and Friday, May 17th and 18th. The details will be available online and will be sent by email to those chosen to present.


Select posters will be chosen for electronic poster display, or ePoster.  ePoster format allows for greater exposure of your research by allowing attendees to view posters online during and after the meeting.  ePosters will not take the place of traditional print posters, but will enhance the visibility of posters.
