NEW ABSTRACT SYSTEM
We are implementing a new abstract system this year for all abstract submissions. All abstracts are required to be submitted online - no email submissions will be allowed. You may return to this system to edit your abstract at any time prior to the submission deadline.
Dr. John Gusdon Memorial New Investigator Award is given annually to a new investigator with trainee status who has made a significant contribution by presenting an outstanding research paper during the annual meeting of the ASRI. This award is given in memory of Dr. John P. Gusdon, a founding member of the ASRI, and an advocate of student participation in ASRI Meetings. When you submit your abstract, please check whether you would like to be considered for the Gusdon Award and provide proof of trainee status by letter from supervisor.
ASRI also provides several travel awards to trainees who first-author a top-ranked abstract.
Abstracts should be relevant to the main meeting’s theme. Communications will be made with the presenting author only.
If your abstract is accepted for presentation, you will be required to register for the meeting to confirm your acceptance and be included in the journal proceedings.
Begin your abstract with the abstract title, author’s names, and author’s, affiliations. Underline the name of the presenting author. Abstracts should be structured and consist of no more than 500 words, and organized into four paragraphs labeled: Problem, Method of Study, Results and Conclusions. Please see sample formatting below.
ABSTRACT TITLE - Maximum 20 words. Please capitalize the first letter of the first word. The remaining words should not be capitalized. Please do NOT end the title with a period
AUTHORS & AFFILIATIONS - You must enter the names of ALL AUTHORS (including yourself if you are an author) in the order in which you wish them to appear in the printed journal text. You will also need to include their institution, city, state and country. Author names entered in any other section will NOT be printed in the author index or the final program.

All abstracts are presented as posters and compete for awards and short oral presentations (10 minutes) in addition to the poster display. Poster Boards are 4’ x 8’ and are double sided (usable area 46″ x 46″). We strongly recommend that posters be in landscape mode to ensure that your entire poster fits within the metal frame of the poster board. Velcro tape should be used to hang your posters. Pins or thumb tacks can also be used on the poster boards. We will provide additional pushpins at the meeting. Abstract numbers will be indicated on the poster boards. Posters should include the title of the abstract and the names and affiliations of the authors.
