• Abstract submissions are now open. Submit your abstract now.

    If you are a trainee or an early-career investigator (within 5 years of becoming an independent investigator) and you'd like to have your abstract considered for a short oral presentation, make sure to submit your abstract no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on April 30, 2018.

    *Important note: You MAY submit an abstract for this meeting which has been (or will be) submitted/presented at another meeting!*


    1. An individual may submit more than one abstract.
    2. An abstract may only be submitted to the Workshop once. Duplicate abstracts (reporting the same data) that are submitted under a different author will not be considered.
    3. Abstracts must be submitted online through the abstract submission process. No fax copies, disks or email submissions will be accepted.
    4. Abstracts must be received by 11:59 p.m. on June 1, 2018. Abstracts received after the deadline will not be eligible. Early-career investigators who have elected to be considered for short talks in lieu of posters must submit their abstracts by 11:59 p.m. on April 30, 2018, and will be evaluated first. Those not selected for talks will be considered for poster presentation along with all other submissions.
    5. Abstract review will be performed after the deadline has passed. 
    6. Once an abstract has been selected for presentation, it may not be revised prior to publication in the meeting program. Typographical errors that do not affect the data presented or accidental omissions of co-authors are not reasons for changes to abstracts after selection. Please proof your abstracts carefully for formatting, spelling, and grammar. Double check all sections of the abstract, i.e. title, authors, disclosures, and abstract body. Material may be updated in your presentation.
    7. The maximum character limit that includes the body of the scientific abstract is 7,500 characters, including spaces. The maximum for the lay abstract is 5,000 characters, including spaces.
    8. An abstract may not contain any illustrations, images, graphs or tables. The abstract must be formatted in text only for publication in the meeting program. Any abstract containing an image, graph or table will not be accepted for review. If selected, presenters may expand their abstract to include tables, graphs and images in poster presentation format.
    9. Presenters should use product-based and generic names wherever possible.
    10. All presenters are required to register and attend the meeting.
    11. Submission of an abstract conveys permission to be printed in the workshop program book.

    NOTE: If you require an expedited abstract review process for reimbursement purposes, please contact Tyler Beck after you've submitted your abstract.
