Submit a Simulation Proposal

Deadline to submit SIMULATION Abstracts: May 22, 2017 11:59pm EST.

The AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO Experience is the premier networking event for the otolaryngologist–head and neck surgery community. More than 5,500 of the brightest and most talented medical experts from around the globe will convene for this unique once-a-year opportunity to share practical and comprehensive knowledge to advance the specialty.

The Simulation Education Committee will host the second Simulation Showcase and Reception on Monday, September 11, 5:30pm – 7:00pm as part of the 2017 AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO Experience in Chicago, IL.

We invite you to consider showcasing your current simulator and simulation activities. This will be a chance to share your work with colleagues, see what others are doing in the area of simulation, and gain valuable feedback (both formal and informal) on your efforts. “Table top” demonstrations of simulators are preferred, but brief PowerPoint presentations are acceptable for simulators which cannot be easily transported.

New this Year! The top three abstract authors will present their projects at SIM Tank, a miniseminar held on Monday afternoon, where a panel judges will select the most innovative simulation project.

Using the abstract submission site, please provide the following information no later than May 22, 2017.

  • Simulator/Simulation Activity Description (maximum 150 words)
  • Simulator/Simulation Activity Project Goals and Expected Outcomes
  • Demonstration/AV Requirements
