The following types of abstracts are eligible for submission:
- Abstracts containing basic, clinical, or translational research findings in the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy or gastrointestinal surgery may be submitted.
- Abstracts featuring case reports or clinical vignettes may be submitted. Please note that case studies may not be submitted as late-breaking abstracts.

- Abstracts that have been submitted to DDW in previous years, but not accepted for presentation, may be submitted.
