Introducing ASAM's Call for Abstracts
Members and non-members are invited to submit abstracts for course sessions, workshop sessions, component sessions or papers or poster sessions. ASAM encourages young investigators, researchers and physicians from diverse organizations and populations to submit abstracts. Abstracts should be original, new work with up-to-date data. ASAM welcomes submissions on all aspects of addiction.
A list of suggested topics based on needs assessments of past registrants and members and non-members are provided. Submissions are reviewed by the ASAM Medical-Scientific Program Committee for their quality and interest to conference registrants, as well as for their appropriateness for inclusion in the program based on the suggested topics and needs.
People submitting online abstracts as an individual or for a group of presenters will be considered the “Organizer” and primary contact person for the respective abstract and/or presentation. Organizer duties include submitting and providing all information needed and requested by ASAM.
The Med-Sci Conference goals and objectives for accepted abstracts are; 1) to present the best new scientific research available, 2) to present the best practices, treatments, tools and modalities in all areas of addiction medicine, 3) to bring science into practice and, 4) for learners to be presented with concise, interactive, case-based and/or creative teaching methods.
Call for Abstracts Deadline
ASAM's Call for Abstracts is officially closed. Official acceptance/non-acceptance notifications will be sent to all organizers early December 2012.
Call for Abstracts Notification of Acceptance and Non-Acceptance
All notifications will be sent by email. It is the submitter’s responsibility to ensure his/her email address is correct and current. ASAM is not responsible for confirmations not received due to incorrect contact information. An email confirmation will be sent upon successful submission of an abstract.
All abstract poster/paper presenters will be asked to confirm receipt of their confirmation email and officially accept the invitation to present their abstract. If you do not receive a confirmation email, contact the Education Department (email@example.com) immediately to confirm acceptance or non-acceptance of your submission.
Call for Abstracts Evaluation Criteria
Abstracts will be evaluated based on the submission criteria using a scale ranging from (5) Highest, (4) High, (3) Neutral, (2) Low, (1) Lowest, and (0) Rejected. Abstracts will be blind reviewed by 2013 Med-Sci Conference Program Planning Committee Members, and the average score will be used to rank the priority of the presentation.
