Submission Guidelines

We strongly encourage both oral and poster submissions, and we look forward to hearing about your work!  Please contact this year's meeting chair with any questions regarding the agenda and abstract submission process.

Abstracts submitted for consideration as an oral or poster presentation should be limited to 250 words and must include the following:

  • Title;
  • The presenter's name;
  • Presenter's affiliation;
  • Presenter's physical and email addresses;
  • The names and addresses of any co-authors; and
  • A brief description of the talk, including a distillation of the purpose, methods, results, and conclusions to be presented.

Accepted oral presentations will be scheduled in 20-minute blocks, and presenters should tailor their talk to both allow for a brief speaker introduction and audience questions within that time frame. All presentations should be in MS PowerPoint format, unless special considerations are requested at time of submission.

Accepted poster presentations should be prepared on a display board no larger than 4 ft high by 4 ft wide suitable for mounting to a wall or similar support with pins or Velcro type fasteners. Posters should be visually captivating and readable from a distance of 6 feet.

When your presentation is ready for submission, please use the form provided on the "Submit an Abstract" page. You must be a member of this website to access the form.

Please remember that you must register on this website before you can access members-only pages, including meeting registration and abstract submission!
