ACPA is extending the abstract submission deadline to Monday September 18 at 10 AM Eastern Time due to the enormous impact of both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.  Many ACPA members and other authors have been evacuated or have lost power and/or internet.  The deadline has been moved in an effort to ensure that everyone has the same opportunity to submit.

Professionals are invited to submit abstracts that present new research, developing information or instructional courses on cleft lip/palate and craniofacial anomalies. Only finalized submissions will be evaluated for inclusion in ACPA’s 75th Annual Meeting.

All abstracts will be blinded and peer reviewed. Authors will be notified in December 2017 if the abstract has been accepted for presentation at ACPA’s Annual Meeting. Presenting authors will be required to register for the meeting once registration opens in January 2018.
