Abstract Submission

Abstract submission is now closed. Please make sure to register for the conference.

Abstract Information & Submission

All scientific abstracts for the ASV 2015 annual meeting must be submitted electronically to the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) for processing, evaluation, and inclusion in the electronic Scientific Program & Abstracts.

Abstract submission is now closed. We are only accepting registration for the conference.

Abstract Deadline

The deadline for receipt of all electronic abstracts is 11:59 p.m. EST, February 2, 2015. Abstracts received after this date will NOT be included in the electronic Scientific Program & Abstract Book or scheduled for presentation.

  • Abstract Title: The title should be concise and informative. Avoid superfluous words such as "preliminary studies on," etc.
  • Content: The abstract should educate the reader by clearly stating the originality of the work and its specific conclusions. It is NOT appropriate to state: "The results will be discussed." All abstracts will be reviewed by the Program Committee but will not be edited. Carefully proofread your abstract for errors.
  • Tables and Figures: These items are permitted in the abstract.

Abstract Presentation Preference

Check the "Presentation Preference" box on the abstract form to indicate whether you wish to present in a workshop (oral) or poster session. Because withdrawal of an abstract disrupts the continuity of the program, please DO NOT request a workshop presentation unless you are CERTAIN that you or a co-author will present the paper at the meeting.

ASV will notify you via email in mid-April of the acceptance of your abstract for presentation at the meeting.

Selection of Abstracts for Workshops or Posters

All abstracts will be reviewed by scientific leaders in the field of the "#1 Topic Preference" which is to be designated by the presenter on the abstract form. Due to the large number of oral presentation requests, some requests may be assigned to the "#2 Topic Preference" for workshop presentation or assigned to a poster session. Every effort will be made to assign poster abstracts to the poster session of the "#1 Topic Preference." ASV poster sessions are well attended and afford a special opportunity to present and discuss detailed data with a large number of meeting participants. When considering whether to present a poster, it should be appreciated that some research of excellent quality is best displayed as a poster, especially if complex sequence analyses, large data tables, or elaborate figures are required. Also, authors with limited English skills may consider presenting a poster that will allow their research findings to be better understood and discussed.

Poster Sessions

Authors scheduled in poster sessions will be assigned a poster board space for display of illustrative materials such as text, graphs, charts, and tables. The maximum outside dimension of each poster, including the title, must not exceed 4 ft. x 4 ft. (120 cm x 120 cm). Information presented on posters should be readable at a distance of 3 feet. Poster board fasteners will be provided at the meeting. Authors must be present at their posters during the entire length of their assigned poster session (4:00 pm to 6:00 pm).

ASV Members with current full-member status are invited to submit or sponsor scientific abstracts for workshop and poster sessions at the annual meeting. A current full-member is one who has received notification of his/her election to the Society and whose payment of the 2015 membership dues has been received by the ASV Secretary-Treasurer's office. Payment of dues must be up-to-date to maintain current member status. To verify your membership status, access the ASV Membership Directory online at www.asv.org or contact the office of the ASV Secretary-Treasurer, Dorothea L. Sawicki, at Tel: 419.383.5173; Fax: 419.383.2881; email: asv@asv.org.

Non-Members, Associate Members, Graduate and Undergraduate Student Members may submit an abstract to the annual meeting ONLY if a current full-member of ASV sponsors the abstract. Please note that new full members must have received an email confirmation of their full membership from the ASV Secretary-Treasurer's office and paid the 2015 membership dues before sponsoring an abstract. Non-members wishing to apply for membership in the ASV may submit the online membership application form available on the ASV website at www.asv.org.
