Questions? Contact scientific affairs.


  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. Pacific on April 10, 2020. Abstracts received after the deadline will not be eligible.
  5. Early-career investigators who have elected to be considered for short talks in lieu of posters must also submit their abstracts by the deadline, and will be evaluated first. Those not selected for talks will be considered for poster presentation along with all other submissions.
  6. Abstract review will be performed after the deadline has passed. 
  7. Presenting authors may be asked to give short talks to highlight their posters ahead of the poster session as part of the program.
  8. 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.
  9. The maximum character limit that includes the body of the scientific abstract is 2,500 characters. Spaces are not counted.
  10. Abstracts must be properly formatted and organized into four sections identified by the following bolded headers: Purpose/Objectives, Materials/Methods, Results and Conclusions for publication in the meeting program and Red Journal, if selected. An abstract may not contain any illustrations, images, graphs or tables. 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.
  11. Presenters should use product-based and generic names wherever possible.
  12. All presenters are required to register and attend the meeting.
  13. Submission of an abstract conveys permission to be printed in the workshop program book and publication in the Red Journal.
Any questions regarding abstracts may be directed to ASTRO's scientific affairs department.
