The ANZSN Scientific Program and AwaRds Committee (SPARC) and the 2021 ASM Local Organising Committee invite the submission of abstracts for original work for consideration as an Award Oral, Mini-Oral, Lightning Talk or Poster at the 2021 Online ANZSN ASM.
Associated with the abstract submission process, financial Members of the Society are encouraged to nominate for an ANZSN Award. The Awards to be presented at the 56th ANZSN ASM will acknowledge the outstanding research contributions and achievements of our Members across both clinical and basic sciences.
Abstract submission STRICTLY closes 11:59pm Australian Eastern Standard Time on Friday 23rd April 2021. There will be no extensions.
All submissions must be made via the online Abstract Submission Portal. You must follow the correct process (format, word length) for the submission of your abstract. Incorrectly formatted abstracts and those over 275 words will be automatically rejected. The ANZSN ASM attracts a high volume of submissions and you will not be contacted to resubmit your abstract if it does not fit the requirement.
All accepted abstracts will be published in the Nephrology journal as received at the time of submission. Authors will not have an opportunity to revise their abstracts.
When you submit your abstract you will be asked to indicate your preferred* presentation format (Award Oral, Mini Oral, Lightning Talk, Poster). The Scientific Program and Awards Committee (SPAC) will use this indication as a guide when assessing your submission. SPAC will assess all submissions based on merit and may accept your abstract in a different category to your nominated format. For example, should a Mini-Oral submission not be accepted the SPAC will endeavour to accommodate the abstract as an Lightning Talk or Poster.
*At its absolute discretion, the Scientific Program and Awards Committee may determine that no Award will be made in a designated Award category or Award year.
Select this presentation type if you wish your abstract to be considered for one or more of the ASM Awards categories listed below. You MUST be a current financial member of ANZSN to be able to nominate for any of the below awards. To join or check your membership visit the ANZSN website here.
