3. Submit Abstract: There are no topic category selections for the Recent Advances in Pathogenic Human Viruses Symposium.
To successfully submit an abstract for consideration you are required to complete the following three steps:
STEP 1: Select your programming preferences. All abstracts should be submitted as Volunteered Abstracts, unless
otherwise communicated by the ASBMB office. You are required to enter your abstract title and body text
(maximum of 2000 characters including spaces and punctuation) in order to save and proceed.
In Microsoft Word, select and copy your abstract: Command-A then Command-C (mac user) or
Ctrl-A then Ctrl-C (windows user). On the abstract submission page, click the clipboard icon at the top
left above the text box to paste the abstract into the box. Html tags and special characters will be retained.
You may also type directly into the text box (plain text only).
STEP 2: Enter the authors and affilations in the order they should be listed in the program.
As the instructions note on this page, the first author must be the presenting author. You are only allowed to
have one presenting author for each abstract. You cannot reorder the authors once entered into the system.
If a change is required, you may delete authors and re-enter in the proper order.
STEP 3: The final step is the confirmation screen. You will be provided the option to print a copy of the confirmation.
You will also receive a copy of the confirmation by email. This should be kept for your records.
4. Edit Abstract: Proofread your abstract carefully. Editing of abstracts will be permitted until April 30, 2011.
5. Programming Decisions: All abstracts will be reviewed by the meeting organizers. Abstracts not selected for oral
presentations will be programmed as posters. All programming notifications will be sent by May 20, 2011.
