Use the editable template by clicking on the section you would like to fill in and begin typing or overwriting.  This should ensure that all your information is in the correct format.  Please do not deviate from the formatting outlined in this template; abstracts that deviate from this format will be returned for revision. The first page should include the text only and second page should show the figures.


Save the abstract with the filename “Lastname.doc.”  Create a PDF version of the same file named: “Lastname.pdf”.  These files should be identical and should conform exactly to the format of the template.  If you do not have the ability to create PDF documents, submit an MS Word-formatted document and we will create the PDF document for you.


Submit the abstract in the MS Word or PDF format through the On-line Abstract Submission in the website.
