Pediatric Academic Societies Annual Meeting
San Diego Convention Center *SAN DIEGO, USA Visit the Venue to read more
The Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) Annual Meeting is the largest international meeting focused on research in child health. We bring together a variety of groups to—not only discuss original research, which has been the hallmark of the PAS meeting, but to also discuss how this research can be applied to actual clinical practice in pediatrics. This alliance also provides opportunity to discuss other critical issues that affect child health such as public policy and advocacy.
Approximately 3800 scientific presentations are selected each year. Our program includes independent society specific programming and joint programming in areas of mutual interest between the APS, SPR, APA, AAP and other affiliate societies. This meeting is providing an excellent opportunity to celebrate the past and future of the pediatric discipline in this millennium.

The PAS Program Committee is pleased to invite investigators to submit the results of their research for consideration for presentation at a special Late-Breaker Session. The purpose of the Late-Breaker Session is to ensure that the results of very recent, important clinical trials and scientific discoveries are presented at the 2015 Pediatric Academic Societies' Annual Meeting.
To qualify for presentation at a Late-Breaker Session, a clinical trial described in an abstract should be a major one that is likely to have a significant impact on clinical practice and for which the data were not available by the regular abstract deadline of November 11, 2014. Similarly, a scientific discovery described in an abstract submitted for a Late-Breaker Session should represent a major advance in its field with the critical experiment(s) performed after the regular abstract deadline of November 11, 2014.
To assist the reviewers in determining that abstracts qualify for a Late-Breaker Session, submitting authors are required to provide information documenting why their work qualifies using the criteria note above.
Submissions Begin: 8/28/2014

The pride and reputation of the Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) Annual Meeting has always been predicated on the presentation of the highest quality original science. Your support and participation, through the submission of your best abstracts and attendance, is the key to our persistent success and growth. We encourage you to submit abstracts of the highest quality from your own laboratory or clinical research program for consideration. In addition, help support these meetings by also encouraging junior faculty and trainees, as well as others in your discipline, to submit abstracts detailing cutting edge novel investigations that are hypothesis-driven. The PAS Annual Meeting is an outstanding forum for presentations by young investigators
The 2015 PAS Annual Meeting is the largest and most prestigious meeting dedicated to pediatric research and education in the world, bringing together physicians with expertise in all areas of pediatrics.
