Abstract Submission Instructions

Submission Checklist

Before you start the submission process, be sure you have the following:

  • Co-author names and institutions

  • Abstract title

  • Abstract text (must be fewer than 500 words)

  • Your selection (s) for the abstract’s submission topic

  • Five descriptive keywords

  • Preference for full talk, speed talk, and/or poster presentation

Abstract Submission Details
  1. By submitting an abstract, you agree to attend the meeting (in person) and present your work, regardless of the format assigned (oral, speed talk, or poster). Please use the same e-mail you registered with to submit your abstract. We understand that plans sometimes change for unavoidable reasons, but we ask that if you cannot attend, you designate a co-author to present in your place. 

  2. Presenting authors must register for the meeting by April 1st. If you do not register by this date, your presentation may be canceled. 

  3. Abstracts will appear online exactly as submitted and in the printed book. The submitting author may make revisions and corrections via the draft program. All revisions must be made no later than the revision deadline of May 15th 2024. Please proofread your text carefully before you submit your abstract.

  4. All accepted abstracts will be scheduled either as a full presentation, speed talk, and/or poster presentation at the discretion of the NAFGS organizers and scientific committee. Because full oral presentation requests may exceed available slots, authors should be prepared to present a speed talk and/or poster if their abstract is not selected for a full presentation.

  5. Target timing for accepted talks will be finalized once submissions are received and processed.  Full length talks will be between 15 and 20 minutes while speed talks are typically < 5 minutes. 

  6. The organizers reserve the right to decline any submitted abstracts that lack scientific content or merit or submitted abstracts that merely announce the availability of a resource or service.

  7. By attending the conference, you grant NAFGS the right to use your photograph, name, and likeness for use in NAFGS educational or promotional materials.

  8. Oral presentations will be recorded and made available for on-demand viewing through public channels (following approval from each presenter).
