  • ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE: SUNDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2012 This deadline applies to all submissions, whether for paper or poster. Notifications concerning acceptance or rejection will be made in mid-to-late January 2013.
  • ABSTRACT GUIDELINES Guidelines for preparation of abstracts differ substantially from those given in previous years, so please read this information carefully. Abstracts should be submitted as a one-sided, single-spaced page (8.5"x11"- not A4), 1-inch margins all around, and in Arial 11 point font. Format must be PDF. Do not include author names, affiliations, or other identifying information. The content can be whatever combination of text, figures, tables, charts, and graphics enables you to communicate your ideas effectively, but all content must conform to these specifications and be clearly legible. All abstracts will be screened by our committee before they are sent out for review. Reviewers will also be asked to inform us of any abstracts they feel violate the guidelines. Abstracts will be submitted electronically through an external website.
