Abstract Sorting Categories

All abstract submissions should include a sorting category. Sorting categories are used to assign contributed abstracts to a session. Each contributed abstract must indicate a Category and Sub-category.  Additionally, a Presentation Type (either ORAL or POSTER) must be selected in order to be assigned to an appropriate session. A Category Type may also be selected. Preferences for a group’s abstract placement must be specified by numerical order or first-author order in the “Special Instructions” field.

Abstract Submission Guidelines

The first author is typically the primary presenting author.

If multiple abstracts with the same first author are submitted, one paper will be assigned to the regular session and all others may be assigned to a poster session. Submission of an abstract is taken as a representation by the submitter that the first author is expected to attend the conference.

Contributed abstract length is < 1,300 characters (about 250 words). Having numerous authors as well as overly long titles, affiliations, and footnotes can push the abstract over the character limit despite being within the limit for the abstract text itself.

To speed up submission know the number of authors and select the appropriate Sorting Category (listed below) and proofread the abstract.

Poster Session boards are freestanding, with a display area measuring four (4) feet high by eight (8) feet wide. Push-pins are provided.

If you encounter any problems submitting your abstract contact the APS Abstract Help Line.
