What's New for 2020

#ReSS20 is a 100% virtual experience.

After months of thorough, thoughtful review and discussion, and with a continued commitment to the health and safety of participants and staff, the American Heart Association will present the Resuscitation Science Symposium as a 100% virtual experience in light of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We also are looking towards the future to ensure that we continue to support your work when we return to a state of normalcy because the dissemination of science and new learning must always continue.

Submitting Abstracts

The AHA has moved to a single sign-on process for submitting abstracts and disclosures.

Abstract submitters must have a username and password on professional.heart.org to complete their abstract submission when submitting to any AHA scientific meeting.

If you do not remember your Professional Heart Daily login information or need to update your personal profile, do not create a new account. Please reach out to AHA Customer Service for assistance:

AHA Customer Service:
(888) 242-2453 (Inside U.S.)

Hours of Operation: Monday-Friday (8 a.m. – 5 p.m.) CT

The AHA is now required to collect financial disclosures from all abstract submitting authors and co-authors.

As the submitting author, please be prepared to provide all co-author emails.

Co-authors without a complete disclosure will receive separate correspondence to submit this information.

ReSS Awards

The ReSS Best of the Best Abstract Awards will be presented for the top-scoring abstracts submitted to the Resuscitation Science Symposium. To be eligible to receive one of these awards, attendees must have submitted an abstract to ReSS 2020 during the regular submission process that is related to either cardiac or trauma resuscitation science, receive a top score for that abstract and be a member of the American Heart Association.

The ReSS Young Investigator Awards will be presented for top-scoring abstracts submitted to the Resuscitation Science Symposium. Awards will be given for abstracts pertaining to both cardiac and trauma resuscitation science. To be eligible to receive one of these awards, young investigators (researchers/clinicians within the first five years of their appointment) must have submitted an abstract to ReSS 2020 during the regular submission process, receive a top score for that abstract and be a member of the American Heart Association.

The Ian G. Jacobs Award for International Group Collaboration to Advance Resuscitation Science recognizes international collaboration among individuals over an extended time that has resulted in major contributions to fundamental or clinical science related to cardiac arrest or traumatic injury.

The Lifetime Achievement Awards in Resuscitation Science were established by the Emergency Cardiovascular Care Committee in 2003 to honor scientists for their outstanding contributions in resuscitation science.


Additional awards sponsored by the Council on Cardiopulmonary, Critical Care, Perioperative and Resuscitation (3CPR) are listed below. Please visit each award page for eligibility criteria. For questions, please email: Council.Awards@heart.org.

Max Harry Weil Award for Resuscitation Science
Candidates must be working in any area of research relevant to 3CPR ranging from the whole spectrum of molecular and clinical resuscitation science to molecular and clinical studies of the normal and diseased pulmonary circulation.
Award Application Window: April 15–June 19, 2020 at 8 p.m. (Central Time)

We know that many of you are fighting, both personally and professionally, on the front lines during these uncertain times.

The AHA is committed to supporting your life-saving efforts with COVID-19 resources, research funding opportunities and disseminating the latest in cutting-edge resuscitation science and clinical practice.

We also are looking towards the future to ensure that we continue to support your work when we return to a state of normalcy because the dissemination of science and new learnings must always continue. In the interim we want to stay connected to the people that we care about as well as news, information, and education.
