Abstract Manager

Extended abstracts are submitted and managed using the online Abstract Manager. During submission you may choose to give an oral presentation, present a poster, or either (abstract reviewers will make this decision and determine which presenters should be offered the option to give a Speed Talk). Once submitted, edits may still be made until the closing of submission. Presenters may submit two extended abstracts as the lead author, although they may be listed as co-authors of other presentations.

Talk Types

  • Oral Presentation: 20 minutes (15 minutes for presentation + 5 minutes for questions)
  • Speed Talk: 5 minutes (requires both a presentation and poster)

Extended Abstract Requirements

  • Microsoft Word file (single spaced)
  • Submitted in English
  • Maximum of 1,000 words (including references and figure captions)
  • Maximum of 1 table and 2 figures
    • Do not embed table or figures in the text; they should be uploaded separately.
    • Tables: Word or Excel files only
