About:

The Northern California Society for Clinical Gastroenterology (NCSCG) invites the submission of abstracts and case vignettes describing clinical, basic science, and/or psychosocial research in the fields of gastroenterology, gastrointestinal endoscopy and surgery, hepatology, and transplant. Our goal is to promote research among trainees currently  interested in gastroenterology and hepatology, stimulate collaboration, and foster the development of ideas for future studies.

 

Authors may submit one or more abstracts and case vignettes of completed work, work-in-progress, quality improvement research or work presented elsewhere within the past 12 months. There is no limit on the number of submitted abstracts per presenting author and there is no submission fee. Submitted abstracts and case vignettes will be peer-reviewed and presented through poster presentations.

 

Additionally, authors of top scoring abstracts and case vignettes will be recognized with a certificate of recognition, complementary conference registration, and eligible to receive a Travel Award (as detailed below) and/or monetary award.

 

Awards:

 

Young Investigator Travel Awards

In order to promote and support fellow attendance and participation at the conference, NCSCG will grant a number of Travel Awards, which will include two complimentary nights (Friday, May 19, 2023, and Saturday, May 20, 2023) at the conference hotel (Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa). Applicants will be chosen based on the quality of their abstract(s).

 

People’s Choice Award

In order to stimulate collaboration and networking, this monetary award allows attendees to vote on which abstract presentation is the most impactful to the gastroenterology and hepatology community.
