2.0 What does the Abstract Submission Process Involve?

The abstract submission process begins online!

Please read the instructions on this page carefully. Submitting an abstract is a multi-step process. Each step requires answering questions. Some questions are marked “required” and you may not complete your submission until these required questions have been answered.

You may save and end at any point through the process when writing a new abstract by pressing ‘NEXT’.  Your submission will be held and saved in temporary storage until you return later and complete all required sections. When you log in again, you may click on the abstract title and resume abstract edits. (See 3.0 How do I edit an abstract?)
