Abstracts and Awards - Resuscitation Science Symposium 2021
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.)

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.

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 2021 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.
