Why Submit Your Work to ASE 2016?
“This conference was not only a great opportunity to look at what was happening in a quickly evolving field, but it was the best occasion to present my research. I had the unique opportunity to meet the most influential doctors and researchers in my field and to have a chat with them. This was, probably, the most exciting part of my trip: exchanging perspectives and ideas, leading to a wider understanding about my research.” ASE 2015 Abstract Presenter
“While I have attended a number of cardiology conferences, this one in particular feels collegial and like a true community of physicians who are committed to clinical care and excellent research, and mentoring the next generation of echo researchers.” ASE 2015 Abstract Presenter
“I was able to network with leaders in the field, and begin relationships that will lead to ongoing research and professional collaboration.” ASE 2015 Abstract Presenter

Benefits of Abstract Acceptance
The annual showcase of investigators from around the world presenting cutting-edge research on the latest advances in cardiovascular ultrasound and cases illustrating evolutions in patient care is a highlight of ASE’s Annual Scientific Sessions.
ASE 2016 offers opportunities for investigators to share important findings with colleagues and interact with global leaders in the field. Benefits of abstract acceptance include:
Publication – Accepted abstracts of original work are published in a top-ranked cardiovascular journal, The Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography (JASE) – considered a “Top Ten Essential Journal” for cardiologists.
Awareness – Selected abstracts are promoted to the health and science media in the top 50 markets. Past coverage has included CBS News, the Washington Post, and cardiovascular trade press hitting 3.5 million readers.
Visibility & Feedback – Global experts in cardiovascular research and clinical care will see your work and dedicated viewing times create opportunities for discussion with faculty and attendees. Presenters benefit from this interaction by gaining feedback on current and future projects, while also discovering the latest research results and advances in cardiovascular health.
Support – Travel stipends are available for qualified candidates, and authors are eligible for low conference registration rates.
Acknowledgement of Exceptional Research – Investigators meeting certain criteria are eligible to participate in competitions to highlight exceptional projects, including the Arthur E. Weyman Young Investigator’s Award Competition for young investigators under the age of 40, and the Sonographer Investigator’s Award Competition for sonographer investigators who served as the primary investigator on their project.
International Recognition – The winner of the Arthur E. Weyman Young Investigator’s Award Competition will be invited to present his/her research at the 2016 European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging and 2017 Japanese Society of Echocardiography meetings.
