Abstract Format and Required Information
Please use the sample abstract available here when preparing your submission.

Each abstract should be no more than 275 words, and should fit on a single 8.5x11 page when formatted as specified in the sample abstract. The title and author listing does not count as part of the word total. The abstract must be organized into four distinct paragraphs:

  1. Objective
  2. Method
  3. Result
  4. Conclusion

Please capitalize the first letter of all key words in your title. Do not include supplemental pages, photographs, tables, or references. The abstract should be suitably written for publication in the official program. Since the abstract is frequently the only link between the Program Advisory Committee and the author, care in its preparation is essential.

We strongly suggest you format and save your abstract in an offline word processing program before pasting it into the online submission form. Please use only the Times New Roman font.
