5 Tips to Assist You with the Abstract Submission Process
- Read the 2015 Call for Abstracts guidelines thoroughly prior to beginning the abstract submission process.
- Use mixed case instead of all caps in the abstract title. Do not use acronyms or place a period in the abstract title.
- Keep in mind that the total abstract character limit is 2,750 characters, and each uploaded table and/or graphic file will decrease the character count by 250 characters from the total limit allowed.
- Use a common font type, such as Arial, Calibri or Helvetica, when composing the body of your abstract to avoid reformatting issues.
- Complete your abstract submission before the deadline date to avoid any unforeseen technical issues or other errors. (Note: The abstract submission site closes at noon Eastern on Tuesday, June 23, and will not reopen.)
