You must register for the conference before you can submit an abstract.
When your registration is received you will be sent a confirming email containing a link for abstract submission. In case you are not prepared to submit the abstract immediately, be sure to save the message and link for future reference. If you do not receive this email within minutes of registering, please check your junk folder then contact us to resend it.
Abstract submission deadlines are March 1, 2021 (for oral consideration) or April 15, 2021 (for poster-only). On both dates, the cutoff time is 23:59 Pacific Time (U.S. west coast). You must be registered to attend the meeting prior to submitting an abstract.
A template will not be provided for submitting abstracts, however submissions will be subject to the following limitations: Title = 30 words; Abstract = 350 words; image files cannot be included. Authors should be entered in the same order they are to appear in the program. You will be asked for 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 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 April 15 to make corrections.
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 March 5 and PIs must reply by March 12 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 in early April. All abstracts which are not selected for oral sessions will be accepted as posters. One submission is sufficient – please do not submit the same abstract twice for both oral and poster.
Questions regarding abstract submission should be sent to Mary McCann at Simple Meetings: RNA2021@nullrnasociety.org or +1-206-706-8118.
