Submitting your abstract. Record your personal details on your own ‘dashboard’. If you have already completed it for your registration or another ASN event, you will not have to repeat this, just login to your ‘dashboard’.
As you complete any section of the ‘dashboard’, you will receive a confirmation email.
You can use your email and password to access your abstract submission at any time, and can edit it and observe its selection status from your dashboard.
The presenting author must be the person submitting the abstract and they must do this from their own ‘dashboard’.
You can cut and paste your abstract in several simple steps. The benefits of this system are many but include:
i. Allowing you to preview your abstract and make modifications to your satisfaction.
ii. Ensuring you know your lodgement is completed as you will receive an immediate email confirmation
iii. Ensuring accurate indexing of all authors in the abstract book
iv. Ensuring consistent presentation of all abstracts in the proceedings (overarching formatting is imposed).
Before You Start
* Are you using one of the following browsers
INTERNET EXPLORER (ver 5.5 or newer)
NETSCAPE (ver 7.4 or newer) or
MOZILLA (ver 1.3 or newer)
If not the screen will tell you if it detects you are using the wrong software and you would be better to change to a computer with one of them installed.
* Have you got your abstract open and running on your own computer? – you need to be able to cut and paste it onto the web. (Note that keypad short cuts do not work with Mozilla, you need to use the menu, edit, paste command to paste in text to your submission).
* Is your abstract text less than 350 words – it will not allow you to paste larger submissions. The word count does NOT include your title, authoring or cited references
WHEN YOU'VE FINISHED THE SUBMISSION
You will receive a confirmation email with your Abstract Submission Reference Number. You can view or edit your abstract by returning to your dashboard
If you do not receive this confirmation email, please contact ASN Events .
YES - YOU CAN MAKE CHANGES AFTER YOU HAVE SUBMITTED!!
Changes can be made to your abstract until the scoring process begins. Just return to your Conference Dashboard and select the Edit option under Abstracts. The edit option will no longer appear once scoring has commenced.
Notification of programming decisions will come from the secretariat about 6 weeks after the expiry of deadlines and the working program will be posted to the web site. It will also appear on your own ‘dashboard’. The notification will include specific presentation instructions but in the interim, those preparing posters should note the maximum size allowed is 100cm wide by 120cm deep. Velcro will be available to fix the poster to the boards. Computer data projection is the preferred presentation method for orals. You must be a registered and paid up delegate in order to present your work at the conference.
A couple of weeks before the meeting, the final program will be published to this web page along with hyperlinks to the abstracts.
