All abstracts are blinded and peer reviewed according to specific criteria. Research in progress is acceptable as long as tentative, data-based conclusions are stated in the abstract. Poster presentations and non-research presentations will be selected on the basis of topic, quality of material, and available space. If a significant number of attendees could obtain or have obtained this information elsewhere, it may cause your abstract to receive a lower rating.

Abstracts will be assessed based on the following points:

  • Is the topic appropriate for ACPA’s Annual Meeting?
  • Is the information well organized?
  • Will the presentation introduce new information?
  • Is the required information listed above included?

Authors will be notified in November 2019 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 2020. View abstract submission for more information.
