Abstract Formatting Instructions
- File Formats Accepted: Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) file.
- File Names: Files should be named with presenting author's last name and an abbreviated title of the abstract. (Example: KemeraitRC-Peanut Rx). Using this format makes it easier for APRES staff to organize the meeting sessions.
- The abstract should be prepared in good scientific form and READY FOR PUBLICATION. Abstracts are printed directly from your submission into the published Proceedings. Abstracts will be reviewed for proper formatting, typos and grammatical errors prior to publication. Submissions requiring major revision will be returned to the author(s).
- Format of the abstract:
- Only one (1) paper with the same APRES member as senior author will be accepted for an oral presentation. An invited paper for symposia does not count against the (1) paper limit for senior authors.
Graduate students may compete in only one of three awards competitions: Bailey Award (Best Oral Presentation at 2022 Meeting); Joe Sugg Graduate Student Competition (Oral Presentation); or, Graduate Student Poster Competition. Please indicate when submitting your abstract, which competition you are entering and if you are a Masters or PhD student.
- Oral Presentations: Time Limits and Equipment: Presentations and discussions of papers must fit within a 15-minute time period. Only LCD projectors will be provided or allowed for paper sessions. Presentations should be prepared and saved in PowerPoint (.ppt or .pps) format. Presentations should be submitted prior to the meeting, or saved to a USB flash drive and given to the Technical Program Chair at registration for pre-loading. Presentation files need to be loaded the day prior to the presentation, not loaded in the room on same day as the session.
- Poster Presentations: An area with display boards will be provided for mounting the requisite 30” x 40” posters. Authors may display more than one poster. Optional: Authors may also provide a Pre-recorded, narrated PowerPoint presentation and pdf poster image for inclusion (post meeting) on the APRES YouTube channel.
All Authors (oral presentations and posters) will be notified by May 5th if their abstract has been selected for presentation at the 2023 APRES Annual Meeting. An abstract with no content or simply “TBD” will not be accepted. The May 31 revision deadline is to revise an existing abstract, not buy time to prepare the abstract later.
An abstract accepted for presentation at the 2023 APRES Annual Meeting must be presented at the meeting (via oral presentation or poster) to be included in the 2023 Proceedings of the Annual Meeting.
Thank you for your interest in presenting your research at the 2023 APRES Annual Meeting.
