DDW staff recently held a Twitter chat about the abstract submission process. Here is a transcript of the chat, which includes answers to some frequently asked questions.
@AmerGastroAssn Can a researcher submit an abstract to #DDW14 that has already been submitted to another meeting?
@DDWMeeting If submitted to a national meeting, no. If international, yes. #DDW14
@ekievazquez Can I submit an abstract that will be presented as a poster on ACP-PR chapter? #DDW14
@DDWMeeting No, I’m sorry. Since it was submitted to a national meeting, it cannot be submitted for #DDW14. PR is considered domestic.
@DDWMeeting We’re receiving a lot of questions via email. We’ll tweet the top with their answers throughout the hour. #ddw14
@DDWMeeting Q: Does #DDW14 allow case studies or vignettes to be submitted? A: Yes!
