Submission

All extended Abstracts will be submitted via the Abstract Manager. Text font/size will be formatted automatically as information is entered, either by copying and pasting or typing in directly. Editing is permitted after upload, and special characters may be selected. There are separate boxes to enter the following:

  • Title: Use Upper and Lower Case ("Title Case")
  • Each author's name
  • Contact information for corresponding author
  • Abstract text with references and captions
  • Two figures (separately)
  • One table

When the abstract text is uploaded, you may decide to treat as a one-part abstract, or you may use divisions such as Introduction, Description, Results, Conclusions, and References, but this is not required.

Speed Talks

Speed talks are not listed as an option when you submit an abstract. During review, the Technical Committee will determine which oral or poster abstract submissions are the best fit for the speed talk sessions. Presenters will then be offered this opportunity when they are notified of acceptance. If selected to give a speed talk, you must prepare both an oral and a poster presentation.

Preparation

  • Presentations are 5 minutes.
  • Presentation slides should be created at a 16:9 ratio.
  • Bring your slides on a flash drive and deliver to the session chair. Label the drive with your last name and arrive 15 minutes before the session. An audiovisual person will be available to upload your slides.
  • A speaker ready room will be available for practicing beforehand. The room will be open 30 minutes before the first presentation and until the final session of each day.
  • For the current schedule, refer to the technical program (to be posted soon).
  • For poster requirements, refer to the poster presentation section above.
