Call for Abstracts for Poster Presentations

Call for abstracts for poster presentations is now open for the 6th AKU Annual Surgical Conference from 5-7 March 2021, at the Aga Khan University in Karachi. This year's theme is Surgical Education and Training: Developing Standards.

The scientific committee, with national members, will evaluate the abstracts for content and presentation. A few shortlisted abstract authors will be offered an opportunity for an oral presentation and the top three will be the winners.​

Abstract Content:

Abstracts should be 250 to 300 words or less and must briefly state the hypothesis of the study, describe the materials/methods used, report the results, as well as the statistical treatment accorded to the data and summarize the research findings. The summary should not be a traditional 'discussion' but rather a prioritised, bulleted statement that indicate the study's significance, value and clinical relevance in relation to the existing knowledge on the topic. Abstracts may include up to two graphic attachments, i.e. tables, illustrations and pictures.
