Unveil your research! Abstract submission for Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2017 is now open. Below is some information that will help you to submit successfully.

Submitting Your Abstract

Submitting authors will first need to create a DDW account in order to submit abstracts online. Submitters will use this single account to access all DDW activities like abstract submission, registration and CME. To create an account and submit an abstract, visit the abstract submission site.

Please note that there will be a $60 non-refundable processing fee for every abstract; abstracts are not considered submitted until payment has been received. Authors may pay using Visa®, American Express® or Mastercard®.

Available to help you through the process are the Abstract Submission Guidelines. The DDW site will also provide you with instructions.


After the submission site has closed, successfully submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed and ranked on the basis of scientific merit. Sponsoring society program committees will use these ranking to develop the final meeting program. Abstracts will be selected for oral, poster or video presentation at DDW. If accepted, your abstract will also be published in the online supplement to GIE: Gastrointestinal Endoscopy or Gastroenterology.
