Call for Abstracts

Abstract Deadline: February 14, 2020


As with previous Aspen Lung Conferences, we will utilize the successful format of State of the Art presentations grouped with relevant, short presentations. Each presentation will have sufficient time for discussion to facilitate a lively exchange of new ideas and thoughts on ARDS. There will be seven honorary lectures: the Parker B. Francis Lecture, the Roger S. Mitchell Lecture, the Giles F. Filley Lecture, the Thomas A. Neff Lecture, the Reuben M. Cherniack Lecture, the Thomas L. Petty Lecture and the Marvin I. Schwarz Lecture.

We are particularly interested in attracting translational, basic, or clinical research abstracts related to the broad topics above. Accordingly, we invite you and your colleagues to submit abstracts for consideration for a podium presentation and/or a poster at the conference (abstracts can be similar to those used for ATS). The deadline for abstract submission is February 14, 2020. All who submit abstracts are invited to attend the conference whether their abstract is accepted or not, however, they must register if they plan to attend. 

We will offer three Thomas L. Petty Fellow Travel Awards in the amount of $1,000 each to two fellows whose abstracts have been accepted for podium presentations. 



To Submit Your Abstract:

  1. Review the Abstract Guidelines
  2. Complete the Abstract Submission Form​

NOTE: Time limitations do not allow all submitted abstracts to be presented. In the past, about one third of the submitted abstracts were accepted for podium presentations or poster sessions based on evaluation by a Selection Committee. All investigators will be notified on or near March 31, 2020 about acceptance of their abstracts.
