Abstract Guidelines

Before submitting your abstract...


Participants who would like to present an oral or poster presentation must submit an abstract for consideration by the scientific program committee.
Authors must strictly adhere to the instructions, otherwise abstracts cannot be considered for presentation.

The submitter is required to ensure that all authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission.

Authors are restricted to presenting only one poster during the meeting. 
Submitters cannot submit more than two abstracts. The preferred type of presentation does not matter, but authors will not be be selected to present two oral presentations, nor will they be selected to present two poster presentations. Authors can only have one oral presentation, and they can have only one poster presentation. When both abstracts are selected for poster presentation, the organization will ask the submitter to remove one poster from the program.
