The deadline to submit abstracts is Wednesday, November 1, 2017 11:00am EST/8:00am PST. Authors will receive notifications in December 2017.

All accepted abstracts will be presented in some form during the conference, available on the WOCN website and as a digital supplement of the Journal of Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing. Only accepted Research abstracts will be considered for oral presentations. If your abstract is not accepted for an oral presentation, it will be presented as a poster presentation.

We will be presenting a select number of posters in electronic format (ePoster) this year. The abstract submission process is the same for both traditional paper posters and ePosters. If your poster is chosen for an ePoster, more instructions will follow. Please mark your interest to be considered for this exciting new option on the Title page of the submission process. Click here for more information on ePosters.

Sage Products will provide the WOCN® Society with an unrestricted educational grant to offer a limited number of travel scholarships to support first-time abstract presenters with a focus on Preventative Practices for Wounds. If your submission meets this criteria, you should check off the first-time presenter button and make sure you choose Preventative Practices under the Wound category.
