  • Each abstract should be a maximum of one page, letter format, including figures and exactly conform to the format of the template provided.
    • Use the editable template by clicking on the section you would like to fill in and start your typing or overwriting.  This ensures that all your data is in the correct format.  Please do not remove the format outlined in the template; abstracts that are different from the format will be returned to authors for revision.  If you would like to insert a graphic, insert it in the text box provided, with an appropriate figure caption.  All abstracts including your recent photo must fit entirely in one page.  Be sure to underline the presenting author.
