Submission Guidelines

  • Step 1 of Submission Process = DISCLOSURE FIRST
    • You must complete your disclosure form first before submitting an abstract (this step only has to be completed once and will apply to all abstracts where you are listed as an author, coauthor or presenter).

ONCE YOU LOGIN:

    • If the disclosure button is RED, click on it to complete and submit your disclosure form. Once this has been completed, you will be directed to submit your abstract.
    • If the button is GREEN, you have completed this step and already submitted your disclosure form.  You may proceed with your abstract submission.
  • Submission requires full names and valid email addresses for all authors. All abstracts require a presenting author.
  • Maximum word count of 500 for all content sections combined (Purpose, Method, Results and Conclusion).
  • Accepted abstracts will be displayed in the online program in the format entered, therefore capitalize appropriate words. Use capitals for proper names, titles, geographical names, trade names. NO CAPS LOCK.
  • Numbers should be set out as follows:
    1. One to nine in words, with larger numbers printed numerically (e.g. 10, 52, 120).
    2. Use the percentage sign e.g. 20%.
    (not ‘percent’ in words, unless the number is also written in full at the beginning of a sentence).
    3. When a sentence begins with a number, write it out in full (e.g. ‘Eighty-five percent’).
  • Proofread before submitting.
