Login using your ACC username and password. Please do not create a new ACC account if you already have one. Only one account is allowed per user in order to offer you high-quality services. Contact the Resource Center at resource@acc.org or 800-253-4636, ext. 5603, if you are unsure whether you have an account. If you do not have an ACC account — don't worry it's EASY and FREE!

Once you login using your ACC username, your name and ID number will automatically prepopulate the submission system; the name and ID number must match and are not editable. The submitting author’s name MUST be the author who will present the abstract/LBCT/challenging case if selected. Notification of acceptance will be sent to this person. During the acceptance process in January there will be an opportunity to change presenter author information, if circumstances warrant.

There are ten major steps necessary to complete the ACC online submission system, which you can review by expanding the accordion below. The steps are listed in the order you will find them in the system. Please proofread and spell-check your submission carefully.

  Ten Steps for Completing Your Submission
  1. Select an activity for your submission. Investigators should submit each piece of research to only one activity: Abstract, Cardiovascular Team Case, FIT Clinical Decision-Making Case or Interventional Challenging Case. If you submit the same abstract or case to more than one activity, only the most recently completed submission will be saved.
  2. Agree to the terms and conditions for submitting an abstract, LBCT or case and create a title.
  3. Select a category relating to the topic of your submission. Note: Be sure to view all categories listed before making your selection!
  4. Enter up to two keywords (this is not required for challenging cases).
  5. Enter your institution information.
  6. Enter your author information.
  7. Enter or upload the body of the abstract, LBCT or case as applicable.
  8. Enter your preference to present this abstract in a poster presentation format (not required for YIA, LBCTs or Challenging Cases, as all are presented orally).
  9. Enter your payment information for the processing fee (not required for YIA).
  10. Review your work! Make sure all steps are complete and print a copy of the submission for your records. You may go back into the system and edit a submission until the deadline. There will be no edits allowed after the submission deadline.

Please note: The author entering the submission must file disclosures prior to submitting the research on the ACC's Disclosure Website. Again this year: Abstracts will be considered “complete” without lead investigator disclosures and will go to review as long as all other submission elements are complete. You do not need to take any action at this stage: ACC staff will contact lead investigators separately to obtain these disclosures as a condition of submission. All lead investigators must disclose by January 17, 2017. Failure of lead investigators to provide disclosure information by January 17, 2017 will result in the removal of an accepted abstract from the program.
