Abstract Preparation and Submission
Free Communication and Poster Presentations
Free communciation sessions will consist of a 10min oral presention plus 5min of question time. There will be two poster sessions at the conference and speakers will be expected to be present at their poster during their allocated time.
Abstract submissions for Oral presentations close 5pm AEDT 23th September 2022.
Further guidelines for oral and poster presentations will be available once abstracts have been accepted and the program is finalised.
Abstracts should conform to the following guidelines:
- Length and format: The entire abstract must fit on a single A4 page with 11pt type. For guidance, this is a maximum of about 800 words. Abstracts should be submitted as a Word document (.doc or .docx format)
- Title: should be in bold and in grammatical English. Avoid abbreviations that are specific to a narrow field. Only capitalise the first letter/nouns (do not use capital letters for the full title)
- Author(s): The name of the presenting author should be underlined and listed first. Author(s) name(s) should be listed in full (First name, initial and Last name). Do not list authors by initials only.
- Affliations: Institute address of author(s) should be ordered according to author list. The address(es) should identify where the work was done but may indicate other institutional affiliations.
For free communication abstracts, where no author is a Society member there must be an introducing member who will be identified in parentheses immediately following the address i.e. (Introduced by ...........).
- Body of Abstract: Abstracts must contain reasons for the work, methods employed, results obtained, and conclusions drawn. The text should not make reference to the talk that will be given. Statements such as "the results will be discussed" are unacceptable. If abbreviations are used, they must be defined at first appearance. S.I. units should be used. Latin and other non-English words should appear in Italics.
- Figures: should be restricted to one and referenced in the body of the abstract.
- Tables: should be restricted to one and referenced in the body of the abstract.
- References and Citations: Articles cited within the abstract must be listed after the text, alphabetically by the authors' surnames, then chronologically if necessary. The reference must include all authors' names, year of publication, optional: title of article, abbreviated title of the journal using the standard PubMed form in Italics, volume number in bold, and first and last pages of the article. For a book, include the title, editor, edition if applicable, specific page references if applicable, city of publication and publisher.
- Animal Experiments: Note that Domestic rule 11(5) states that "All abstracts that deal with animal experimentation in vivo should include the names, doses (where applicable) and modes of administration of all anaesthetic, tranquilizing and muscle relaxant drugs employed". Users of in vitro materials should make it clear that tissue was removed from anaesthetised or dead animals. The inclusion of such information is for the protection of authors and the Society.
