Abstract Preparation and Submission Guidelines

Abstracts may be considered for oral or poster presentations. Download the Abstract Preparation and Submission Guidelines for more information on preparing and submitting your abstract.

Please note there is a $25 for each abstract submission. This fee helps support AABB's abstract review and presentation model, including the exploration of new technology to promote and share the work of accepted abstracts with AABB Annual Meeting attendees. The abstract submission fee is required and is a nonrefundable processing fee, and not based on approval or attendance at the AABB 2019 Annual Meeting.

AABB is devoted to a continuing process of improving the quality of the science and administrative approaches presented. Dr. Yazdanbakhsh, chair of the AABB Selection of Abstracts Committee, shares more about the revised criteria for selecting annual meeting abstracts in the March issue of AABB News.
