Abstract Submission Guidelines

All submissions will be collected using the online abstract submission system. Accepted abstracts will be presented during the virtual meeting.

Abstract Submission Deadline: August 10, 2020


Authors are invited to submit original research for poster presentation. Poster presentations may report completed work, work-in-progress having less definitive results, experimental designs for which data may not yet been obtained, or historical summaries bearing new insights. Abstracts should clearly reflect basic research, applied research, or technical efforts and not a commercial product.

  • Please limit your abstract to a maximum of 250 words.
  • The title should be as brief as possible but long enough to clearly indicate the nature of the study.
  • At the conclusion of the abstract, identify the source of support especially if it may reflect potential conflicts of interest(s).

  • In addition:

  • Virtual poster presentations will include a high-resolution image that the viewer can zoom in and out to view the details.
  • Presenters will have the option to also upload a 5-minute oral PowerPoint presentation to accompany their poster.
  • Meeting attendees will be able to ask questions to poster presenters throughout the duration of the virtual meeting.
  • The top 8 posters will be included as part of the live events program to present their 5-minute oral presentation and answer questions.
