Welcome to the OAA Free paper abstract submission site


  • Both members and non-members may submit free papers for oral or poster presentation.
  • Abstracts need not be in their final form before being entered and saved on the site.
  • 'Submitted' abstracts can be modified by the author any time up to the closing date.
  • All correspondence regarding an abstract must take place through this site using the 'contact' link.
  • Abstracts without results and those in which the randomisation code has been broken to allow analysis before the study has finished (without interim analysis being part of the original design) may be accepted at the discretion of the Chair of the Assessors.

Presenting Authors and Supervising Authors

  • The presenting author or, if unable to attend, an appointed alternative author of an accepted abstract must register and pay for the meeting no later than the registration deadline above. Failure to do so will result in their abstract being withdrawn from presentation and not listed or published in either the meeting handbook or, if it has been offered, the International Journal of Obstetric Anesthesia (IJOA).
  • Unless permission is given by the Chair of the Assessors, the presenting author must be one of the original authors of the study.
  • The presenting author may enter as a ‘trainee’ if the abstract is submitted before they start work as a consultant.
  • In the case of a presentation by a trainee, the supervising author (or a nominated substitute) must be present during presentation of the abstract to answer any questions.
