For program-specific rules, please see the links to the right.
Abstracts must be submitted using the online abstract submission process linked from this page.
Submission by members and non-members are welcome, and participation is open to health professionals in any field. However, some sections require sponsors for papers whose authors do not include a member of the respective section. Please review the specific rules for your particular program by following one of the links to the left.
The text of each abstract is limited to 450 words. Images and tables are permitted. Images will not count toward the word limit, but any words or numbers within an included table will be counted accordingly.
All authors will be required to complete conflict of interest disclosures for CME purposes. This is the final step in the abstract submission process.
An abstract may be submitted to one section or council only. Do not double-submit by altering the title and resubmitting to a second program.
Authors whose abstracts are accepted for presentation will be expected to attend the meeting and make their presentation.
Notification of acceptance or rejection of abstract will be emailed in June.
Authors of accepted abstracts will receive a reduced registration rate for the National Conference & Exhibition and must register by August 1, 2013
Other rules will apply for abstracts submitted to certain programs. Please see the links to the left for program-specific rules.
Instructions for Online Abstract Submission:
Complete the required fields for each step. You will not be allowed to continue to the next step if some required fields are left blank.
At no point in the abstract should words occur identifying either the city or institution submitting the abstract. If such material is contained in the abstract, the abstract will be withdrawn from consideration.
Abbreviations: Use only standard abbreviations. Special or unusual abbreviations should be placed in parentheses after the first appearance of the full word. Numerals rather than words may be used to indicate numbers.
Once you have submitted the title of your presentation you will automatically receive an email that includes a password-protected hyperlink. If you must interrupt the submission process before finishing it, you can resume at any time by clicking on the hyperlink in that email.
