ASET's 60th Anniversary Annual Conference will take place in Kansas City, MO on August 15-17, 2019. We are seeking abstracts: both platform and poster for presentation at this event! Read on!
What is an abstract and why should I consider authoring one?
An abstract is a short descriptive statement that explains a larger work or presentation. The ASET annual conference program includes platform (oral) and poster abstract presentations. An abstract presentation provides an opportunity to share innovative ideas, new techniques and interesting case studies.
When completing an abstract application form for the ASET annual conference, you are required to include a 100-200 word abstract to be included with the application. The abstract is essentially a proposal that explains what you intend to present. The ASET Program Committee will review all abstracts to ensure that content is appropriate and there is no conflict of interest. Once accepted by the program committee, I will notify you of acceptance, and I will assign you a presentation time if a platform abstract. Platform presentations slots are 30 minutes long. We recommend that you end your presentation with 5 minutes to spare, to allow time for questions.
For poster abstract presenters I will provide a schedule of poster viewing times. We ask poster abstract presenters to stay with their posters during these official viewing times, to interact with attendees and give them time to chat with you about your topic.
What are the advantages of presenting an abstract?
· You will get free meeting registration for the day of your presentation
· Your abstract will be published in the December issue of the ASET Journal, “The Neurodiagnostic Journal”. This means that your abstract will also appear in larger bodies of scientific data, such as PubMed. You will be a “published author” and can be included in your curriculum vitae.
· Your audience will benefit from the sharing of information and opportunity to hear new ideas and network to provide the best neurodiagnostic services possible.
· You’ll have an opportunity to try public speaking with a very short presentation, sharing something you know, to build your confidence in a supportive environment.
Tips for writing an abstract:
Be concise: you only have 100-200 words!
Answer these questions:
· What is the importance or reason for your research, project or case study?
· What problem does this work highlight and attempt to solve?
· What methods did you use?
· What were your results?
· What are the implications or advantages of your work?
I encourage you to complete an abstract application prior to the March 15 deadline for submission. You can access the on-line application version at our website, and you can upload the abstract during the application process. We cannot consider including abstract applications unless an abstract is attached. Please use this link: ASET 2019 abstract application
