26th Annual Canadian Society of Echocardiography Hybrid Weekend (CSE 2024) | Hotel Bonaventure, Montréal | April 19-21, 2024


Trainees, sonographers, and echocardiographers within 3 years of completion of their training are invited to submit an abstract. The first or senior author must be a CSE member. There is no processing fee for abstract submission. CSE 2024 will be a hybrid meeting, all accepted abstracts MUST be presented in person in Montreal. The presenter of each selected abstract will be granted free conference registration; the abstracts will be judged on-site and presenters will be eligible to receive a $500.00 prize for each of the categories of original research and clinical case presentations. In addition, two abstracts will be selected for oral presentation, and the presenters of those will each be awarded a travel bursary.
Submission of an abstract constitutes a commitment by the author(s) to present in-person if accepted. Failure to present the accepted work could jeopardize future acceptance of abstracts by the CSE. We recommend that authors await notice of outcome before registering as successful abstracts will qualify for a free registration.
