You must register for the conference before you can submit an abstract. Registration will open in mid-December, 2019.
When your registration is received you will be sent an email message that includes the link for abstract submission. In case you are not prepared to submit the abstract immediately, be sure to save the message and the link for future reference. If you do not receive this email within 3 hours of registering, please check your junk folder and contact us to resend it if you haven’t received the email.
A template will not be provided for submitting abstracts, however submissions will be subject to the following limitations: Title = 30 words; Abstract = 350 words; Authors = 20; Affiliations per author = 2; image files cannot be included. Authors should be entered into the submission screen in the same order they are to be printed in the abstract book. References are not required; if provided they will be included in the word count. You will be asked for 3 key words (not required fields) and your PI’s name and email address in addition to the names and affiliations of all authors. You will be able to return and complete the submission later if you do not have all the required information initially, however the submission must be completed in full by the deadline date. The submitting author will receive all correspondence related to the submission even if the submitter is not identified as the presenting author. Submitting authors are responsible for checking the accuracy of the abstract and author list! You can login to the system any time until the March 15 deadline to make corrections.
The deadline for submitting an abstract is February 28, 2020 (to be considered for oral presentation) or March 15, 2020 (for poster-only). On both dates, the cutoff time is 23:59 Pacific Time (U.S. west coast). You must be registered for the conference prior to submitting an abstract.
If there are multiple oral presentation requests from one lab, the PI will be asked to rank the abstracts (emails will be sent to PIs by Wednesday, March 4). PIs must reply by Monday, March 9 to have their rankings considered by the organizers. In the case of multiple senior PIs on an abstract, only one can be identified as the contact for this ranking.
Decisions about oral presentations will be sent by email at the end of March. All abstracts which are not selected for oral sessions will be accepted as posters. One submission is sufficient – do not submit the same abstract twice for both oral and poster.
If you have any questions regarding abstract submission, please contact Mary McCann at Simple Meetings: RNA2020@nullrnasociety.org or +1-206-706-8118.
