Please prepare your submission in accordance with the requirements listed below:

  • Abstracts must be typed in the 'abstract text' box, no more than 250 words, single-spaced. Do not indent headings.
  • Abstracts should be proofread prior to submission. Abstract data cannot be altered after the submission site is closed. Title and authors may not be changed. 
  • Abstracts must be original work and should not have been published previously. 
  • The initial aspect of the abstract should contain the title and the author(s) name and respective site(s) of the study. Single space all typing.
  • The primary author, one and only one author required for each abstract, should be identified by selecting the 'Primary Author' option from the 'author type' drop down list.  The role of any additional authors (maximum of 4) should be identified by selecting the appropriate 'author type' as the author is added to the submission. Only the primary author will be listed in the meeting program.
  • The text should be structured to describe the objective of the study and results of your work. It should include the following headings:
    • Introduction: a brief statement about the purpose of the study/project and the current state of research in the field.
    • Methods: the method(s) of study or data collection used.
    • Results: a summary of the study results including sufficient details to support your conclusions.
    • Conclusions: a statement explaining the significance of your work and the implications for further research. 
  • If you are presenting a case study, begin the abstract with the words "Case Study" and you may exclude the structure above. 
  • Use only standard abbreviations. Use numerals to indicate numbers except at the beginning of sentences.

*Please note, if your abstract is accepted, you will be required to send one powerpoint slide in a video file so it can be uploaded into our virtual poster system. Details will be available once accepted. 

**Also, medical student posters ARE NOT available for the Donald F. Richardson Memorial Paper Award (you might see this on the abstract submission page). Please ignore the Donald F. Richardson Memorial Paper Award as this is only available for ACOG Junior Fellows.
