Submit your work to ABS 2020

Abstract Submission

The online abstract submission deadline has been extended!
New Deadline is June 17, 2020 by 11:59 PM Central Time

Presentation Options

  • Pre-recorded 6-minute talk presentation, with an invitation to participate in a live Q&A/discussion session scheduled during the program.
  • Pre-recorded 3-minute lightning talk (comparable to presenting a poster)

Abstract Submission Guidelines

  • To be considered for any of the above presentation options, an abstract must be complete and submitted online by the posted deadline.
  • Abstracts cannot be submitted until meeting registration (including payment) is complete.
  • The abstract itself should be less than 1200 characters including spaces, but excluding title, authors, and affiliations (about 200 words).
  • 6-minute talk sessions will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis with preference given to students and post doc registrants. If a talk slot is not available a 3-minute lightning talk will be assigned.
  • Please complete your submission carefully. All abstracts must be in final form. No typos or other errors can be corrected after the deadline.
  • Abstracts will not be considered unless all required fields are completed. Authors may edit abstracts online as long as they meet the submission deadline.
  • Registrants may submit one science abstract for a talk or lightning talk, as well as one education/teaching lightning talk.
  • Presenters will be allowed to include one figure (image or data table). Figures will be collected with the final program content/presentation recordings.

Author Notifications

  • Abstract notifications will be available around July 1 and sent via email to the submitting author.
  • Remember 6-minute talks are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. All others will be assigned as a 3-minute lightning talk.
  • Those selected for a 6-minute talk will be asked to participate in a scheduled live Q&A/discussion session during the program dates.
