Abstract Sponsor Guidelines 

  • Abstracts submitted to ASBMB topic categories may be sponsored by full regular members of any of the other EB-sponsoring societies (AAA, APS, ASBMB, ASIP, ASPET) or the official EB guest societies (refer to www.experimentalbiology.org for a complete list). 
  • By agreeing to be named the abstract sponsor, you adhere to the rules and the merit of the abstract submission and presentation. Sponsors of submitted abstracts must confirm that all authors listed on the abstract had a significant role in the research being reported. 
  • The abstract sponsor does not have to be an author on the submitted abstract.
  • Student authors and Non-members must have a regular member of ASBMB, or one of the other EB sponsoring societies, serve as the sponsor of a submitted abstract.
  • A sponsor should be identified and confirmed prior to beginning the online submission process. During the submission process you will have to provide the name, email address, telephone number and society to which the sponsor is a member. 
  • The sponsor will receive notification upon the successful submission of the abstract.
  • Student abstracts are most typically sponsored by the advisor/PI.    
     
  • Active, regular ASBMB members  may serve as the sponsor of their own abstracts and serve as the sponsor of student non-member abstracts.     
     
  • Associate members (postdoc of no more than 5 years), may sponsor their own abstract submission, but may not serve as sponsor of another author's abstract.   
     
  • Affiliate members may not serve as a sponsor, including sponsoring their own abstract.
