Leave a 1-inch margin on all sides. Abstract text should have a maximum of 350 words. Include following sections: Background, Methods, Results, and
Conclusions. It is not satisfactory to state "The results will be discussed . .
." or "Additional data will be presented." Do not cite references in the
abstract. Limit use of abbreviations; define any non-standard abbreviations at first use in parenthesis. Illustrations are discouraged; however, small tables may be accepted.
Please send abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org
by July 1, 2007.
Your abstract will be scored on the following criteria: 1) the scientific merit
of the abstract, 2) the adequate sample size and proper statistical analysis, 3) adherence to instructions, and 4) originality of work. All attempts will be
made to have abstracts reviewed with responses to applicants regarding whether or not the abstract will be presented in platform (oral) or poster form by July 15, 2007.
All abstracts will be printed, collated and available for all to receive at the
September 6-8 conference.
Guidelines for poster session:
Posters must be set up and removed promptly. Pins or thumbtacks will be supplied to mount your poster. Moderators will discuss posters on "walk-rounds" (Date TBA). You are encouraged to be with your poster during this time.
1) Surface of the poster board will be standard size (4 feet high and 8 feet
2) Prepare a headline that identifies your research to be mounted at the top
of the poster board. Include authors and their affiliations under the header.
3) The key is to achieve clarity and simplicity. Do not overload the poster.
Use a coherent sequence (top to bottom or left to right) to guide the viewer
through the poster. Use figures, tables, graphs and photographs when
appropriate; keep text brief. It may be helpful to have materials pre-mounted on
mounting boards. All materials should be legible from a distance of 4 feet.
4) Avoid using abbreviations, acronyms and jargon. Font should be consistent
