Abstract Submission 

Submission Instructions

To successfully submit an abstract for consideration you are required to complete the following 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 (max. of 250 characters)
                     and body text (max. of 2000 characters including spaces and punctuation). 
                               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.  
                              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 and select if they are a presenting 
                    author.  As the instructions note on this page, atleast one author must be selected as the presenting author.  
                    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:  Review Abstract.  Click the link to view a PDF copy to view your abstract.  Proofread carefully.  This is how your
                     abstract will appear in the program.  You may choose to edit the abstract or continue to the payment screen.    

   STEP 4:  A one time non-refundable $30 fee is required to submit your abstract.  Your abstract will not be saved until you 
                    submit your payment.  Payments must be made online by credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express). 

   STEP 5:  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. 

Edit Abstract: Once you have submitted your abstract and paid the abstract submission fee additional editing of 
abstracts will be permitted until August 1, 2012.  Please return to the system and click the edit button next to the abstract.
You may also click to download a PDF copy of your abstract payment receipt.   

Programming Decisions:
All abstracts will be reviewed by the meeting organizers.  Plenary Lectures will be notified by Tuesday, May 1, 2012.  Poster Abstracts will be notified by Friday, August 30, 2012.  All abstracts not selected for oral presentations will be programmed as posters (or until the capacity is reached).
