Abstract Submission Instructions
1. Set up your profile: Fill in your contact information. Here you will be asked to create a password. The password you
create will be used for all future ASBMB Special Symposia Meetings. You will be prompted each time you return to the
site to update your profile before continuing to the meeting page. A confirmation page with your user email address
and password should be kept for future use.
2. View Meeting Overview: Once you submit your profile, enter the welcome page for the meeting. From this page,
select the button to create a new abstract. This page will track each abstract submission and allow you to edit
your submission(s) until the cut off date of August 1, 2010.
3. Submit Abstract: There are no topic category selections for the Transcriptional Regulation by Chromatin and RNA
Polymerase II Special Symposia Meeting. 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 payment screen. A credit card must be provided to pay the one time fee of $30 per abstract.
Each abstract will only be considered for programming once the payment is received. Upon submission
of payment, you will receive a confirmation email. This should be kept for your records.
4. Edit Abstract: Proofread your abstract carefully. Editing of abstracts will be permitted until August 1, 2010.
5. Programming Decisions: All abstracts will be reviewed by the meeting organizer. Abstracts not selected for oral
presentations will be programmed as posters. All posters will compete for two $1,000 "Best Poster Awards."
Status (talk/poster) of the abstracts submitted will be posted on the ASBMB website by mid-September.
