Record number of abstracts submitted to the Global Spine Congress in Toronto

The Global Spine Congress (GSC) did it again! The number of abstracts submitted for the next GSC taking place in Toronto from May 15-18, 2019 has once again exceeded abstract numbers from last year.

08 October 2018

In total, 1,501 abstracts were submitted—this is a 36% increase in abstracts submitted over last year.

See below how each region of the world contributed to the total number of abstract submissions and which are the most popular abstract topics.

Abstracts accepted for the GSC appear in a special supplement to the Global Spine Journal—a great opportunity to have your work viewed in an internationally renowned spine publication.

During the GSC, accepted abstracts will be invited for oral or ePoster presentations at a select number of sessions.

The GSC in Toronto is expected to gather over 2,000 participants and is excited to have the congress return to North America for its 10-year anniversary. The GSC is a great venue to network with spine professionals from around the world, career development opportunities, and access to the world's best research and clinical experts.
