The ANZSN Scientific Program and Awards Committee (SPAC) and the 2020 ASM Local Organising Committee invite the submission of abstracts for original work for consideration as an Award Oral, Mini-Oral or Poster in the ANZSN ASM program.
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 55th 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 28th August 2020. 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, ePoster).
Abstracts will be accepted for the ASM only and will not be accepted for the Nephrology and Transplantation Update Course.
*Note, the SPAC will use this indication as a guide when assessing your submission. The 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 ePoster.
