Background: Seminars and congresses provide an academic atmosphere to present unpublished data and new scientific achievements. In this regard, assessing the quality of such academic events can play an important role in developing their scientific values and identifying their weaknesses. Materials and methods: In this descriptive, cross-sectional study, the abstracts of the two recently held aerospace and submarine medicine congresses were evaluated. Descriptive statistics were used for data analysis. Results: Results showed that the majority of the presented articles (about 90%) were review articles and only about 10% of contributors had submitted original research studies. In addition, the affiliation of the corresponding author in most articles was AJA University of Medical Sciences (64% and 86.7% in the first and the second congress, respectively). Toxicity and occupational medicine were the most frequent subjects (40% and 28.2%, respectively). Conclusion: The results indicated that the quality of abstracts presented in both congresses was not satisfactory. It seems necessary to find a proper strategy to improve the scientific and research quality of such events in future.

Keywords: Abstracts, Aerospace and submarine medicine, Congress
