Please have your coauthors go to https://www.xcdsystem.com/datatrace/abstract/index.cfm?ID=aRalvKo and complete the Mandatory Financial Disclosure Forms.   All co-authors must complete a Financial Disclosure Form in order for you to present at the meeting. It is your responsibility to have your co-authors complete the form.  Disclosure information must be updated yearly.   Your presentation will be removed from the program if all of your co-authors do not complete the Disclosure Form by November 22nd.

All abstract presenters are required to register for the meeting and receive the member registration fee. If you are a Resident or Fellow, please register at the Resident/Fellow registration fee. All withdrawals may be put on a 3-year probationary period at the discretion of the Program Chair and President. All authors and co-authors of any withdrawn presentation will be unable to submit work to SOMOS for consideration, unless there are reasonable extenuating circumstances.

The Financial Disclosure and FDA Forms are not optional. The ACCME requires the Mandatory Financial Disclosure Form be completed by all authors and coauthors in order for you to speak at the meeting. In addition, they require that the 1st or 2nd slide of your presentation include your disclosure statement.  This slide should outline the disclosure information included on the disclosure form.

All PowerPoint presentations must be submitted prior to the Annual Meeting.  Please refer to the Audiovisual Instructions for complete format and download information.
