One of the ways ACEP pushes for the advancement of emergency physicians is by encouraging and promoting innovative research that makes an impact on daily practice. Whether you’re an investigator, participant or consumer, there is a role for everyone.

Research Forum

It’s time to submit your ACEP24 Research Forum abstracts! The Research Forum, held annually in conjunction with the ACEP Scientific Assembly, is emergency medicine’s premier research event. The Research Forum typically selects more than 400 abstracts per year, presented live during the event. To be considered for the 2024 ACEP Research Forum, which takes place Sept. 29 - Oct. 2 in Las Vegas, submissions are due by April 30.
