Submit Your Science

The ACC’s Annual Scientific Session brings together leading cardiovascular professionals from around the world to discuss and debate the latest science and research. And abstracts and cases are an important component of the scientific program — they are a vital channel for sharing important scientific research.

At ACC.19 you will have the opportunity to share your research with nearly 12,000 colleagues from around the world. In addition, accepted abstracts will be published online in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, one of the top-ranked cardiovascular journals in the world!

With more than 250 reporters representing over 20 countries expected at ACC.19, your research will have global reach! In 2018, abstracts were featured in articles from The Wall Street Journal, Associated Press, TIME magazine, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, CBS News, Reuters, Forbes, Huffington Post, Daily Mail and many other media outlets worldwide. Late-Breaking Clinical Trials, general abstracts and other meeting activities were covered in more than 2,300 unique articles, creating billions of media impressions.

The ACC accepts submissions in a wide variety of submission categories — abstracts in 43 categories, FIT Clinical Decision-Making Cases, Cardiovascular Team Cases and Interventional Challenging Cases — so everyone on the care team can be part of ACC.19! The ACC is currently accepting submissions for the Young Investigator Awards. Don’t miss your chance to share your science!
