Abstract Submission Guidelines:

  • The abstracts must be submitted electronically via the NCPS website online submission form.
  • Membership or registration for the annual meeting is not required at the time of submitting the abstract for review. For each poster, however, there needs to be a unique presenter (i.e., one registered presenter per approved poster).
  • Abstracts must be submitted in English, on one page (250-word count) and use a structured format which includes sections for Background, Design/Methods, Results, and Conclusions. Conflicts of interest and funding source for the study need to be added to the end of the abstract and bottom right corner of the poster. (Does not count towards word count.) If there were none, then explicitly state “none.” CLICK HERE to view example abstract. Remove authors and affiliations from first word file submissions for anonymous review by committee.
  • Abstracts should include any pertinent disclosures regarding the research.
  • Abstracts should include relevant background, well-described methods including specifics of parameters, study results including number of subjects and relevant statistics, and a clear statement about the novel, unpublished findings that will be presented.
  • Avoid making conclusions that are not supported by specific data presented. Instead provide what the data specifically supports, and what is required in the future to confirm or refute.
  • Abstracts that do not include data or indicate “results will be provided later” will not be accepted
  • Each abstract/poster shall have at least one presenting author identified who must register and be present during the poster session to discuss the work with the attendees.
  • Co-authors must be entered at the time of submission. They cannot be added after the abstract is submitted.
