Submission Process


  1. Log in to the submission system when your abstract is completed and ready to submit. To log in, enter your email address and the password you chose when you registered with the system.

  2. When you click the “log in” button you will be taken to a screen and asked to add the contact details of the presenting author by clicking on the Update Contact Information tab along the top. Additional tabs will appear once the contact information has been completed.

  3. Click on the Abstract Submission tab along the top. Please read the instructions on this screen carefully. Submitting an abstract is a multi-step process. Each of the tabs on the left hand side of the page will bring up a step in the submission process that needs to be completed. Each step asks several questions

Step 1: Enter the full title of your abstract and select the presentation type for the drop-down list.

Step 2: Select the subject category that best describes your abstract from the drop-down list.

Step 3: List the universities or other institutions with which the authors are affiliated and enter the names of all authors here – including yourself if you are an author – in the order in which you wish them to appear in the printed test. Names omitted here will not be printed in the author index or the final program.
Please ensure that the Affiliation Number next to the Author’s Name corresponds with the Affiliation Number listed above, i.e. all authors from the same affiliations should be numbered alike. If an author is from more than one affiliation, please separate numbers with a comma (no space).

Step 4: Submit abstract via the Abstract Portal.         

Step 5: Please select any awards or travel grants you wish to apply for.

Step 6: Review your submission. Any sections that are still required to be completed are noted in red.

All Steps: Some questions are marked “Required”. We cannot accept your abstract until these questions have been answered.

At any time in the process you can click the Save As Draft button to save your incomplete submission and return to it at a later time.

Final Step: If all required abstract submission fields have been completed you will have the option to submit your abstract at the bottom of the page. If there are any remaining fields or sections to complete you will only have the option to save your submission as a draft until they are completed. You must agree to the Terms and Conditions before you can proceed.
