  • Your last name
  • 3-4 identifying words from your title

This makes the job of the Program Coordinator, Editor and Sectional Vice President much simpler. 

Two examples of abstracts are available as examples:

  1. Two or more authors at the same location
  1. Several authors at multiple locations

Students: If you are interested in being part of the student oral competition, the body of your abstract should contain no more than 250 words or it will be disqualified. Both the abstract samples meet that requirement. See below for assistance in finding the number of words in your abstract (from Microsoft):
