Call for Abstracts


Deadline is Friday, July 24th at 5:00 PM- submissions are now closed

In response to the unexpected circumstances associated with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the NYACP Executive Committee has DECIDED to TRANSITION THE IN-PErson conference to a virtual experience. We will be accepting abstracts for the opportunity to Present your E-Poster VIRTUALLY This Fall!

2020 NYACP Annual Scientific Meeting - Virtual E-poster Presentations!

NYACP has made the safe decision to adjust the onsite Final Poster Presentations to virtual online final E-poster presentations through Zoom Meetings.

Online abstract submissions and preliminary judging are the same.

Final Judging:  If you are chosen to present your E-poster, live dates to present are either Thursday, September 24 or Thursday, October 1, 2020. You will be presenting live and online to a team of judges.

Since we do not have the opportunity to showcase physical posters this year with our Annual Meeting, we request that each accepted poster presenter upload a slide with a digital version of your poster. You will have 8-10 minutes to present your work to faculty judges live via web-conference.

The winners will receive a trip to present in person at ACP's 2021 National Competition in Orlando in May, 2021.

Online submissions are now open - deadline is July 24th at 5:00 pm.

Your Program/Clerkship Directors will be notified of competition results the week of
September 11, 2020.

NYACP staff WILL NOT notify individuals of the results.

For questions, call the Chapter office at
(518) 427-0366.

Rules and Regulations | top


  • Only one abstract may be entered with each payment of $30. Our system will detect multiple entries. If you have not paid for both entries, all of your abstracts will be disqualified.
  • Do not share the abstract submission link, we will disqualify all abstracts that are sent in without payment.


NO edits are allowed on submitted abstracts. Please be sure that all errors are corrected before submitting. And your program director has reviewed and approved your abstract.

Up to 2 abstracts may be submitted, both require the $30 processing fee. A maximum of 2 Abstracts (regardless of category) may be submitted per person. If 2 abstracts were submitted, and both were accepted, only one can be presented at the competition, by the first author, the other abstract  can be presented by the second author.  If the first author is not available to present, then the second author can present the accepted abstract.

If you make an error on your abstract you may submit a revision but a separate $30 processing fee is required for the new submission and this will be considered as two abstract entries, however, we will replace the first abstract with the second entry.
