Abstract submission

One of the main functions of the SATS meeting is to attract young cardiothoracic scientists and create opportunities for them to practice the abstract process and presentation. The meeting is an excellent event to network with other researchers from the Nordic countries and meet the mentors in the area of research and practice. There is no age limit for submitting an abstract and therefore this is an excellent chance also to present ongoing studies and connect with your peers in exchanging ideas.
