  1. Content - Abstracts must adequately describe the research performed so that the quality, originality, and completeness of the work can be evaluated. Only structured abstracts with the following headings can be submitted.

    • Objective: An introductory sentence indicating the objective and purpose of the study

    • Design: A briefly worded description of the study design

    • Materials and Methods: A description of experimental procedures including applicable statistical evaluation

    • Results: A summary of the new data and results

    • Conclusions: A statement of the study's conclusions

    • Support: Identify all sources of financial support for the research or state "None" if applicable.

  2. Abbreviations used in abstracts must be defined. Abbreviations are permitted in titles if they immediately follow the term being abbreviated and are enclosed in parentheses. If used in the text, they should be defined at first mention if not already defined in the title.

  3. ACCME guidelines require generic names be used for pharmaceuticals, biologics, and medical devices. The trade name of the particular product used in a study may be included in parentheses the first time the product is referenced. The trade name may be used if the product is the only one of its general type and use of the generic name would encumber the reader.

  4. Limit the number of authors to six (6) - no exceptions.

  5. In the abstract textboxes, list the presenting author first. Type each authors' first name, initial, last name and affiliation in upper and lower case, in italics, not in bold. The authors' names will be printed in the program exactly as submitted.

  6. Do not identify individuals in the title or abstract body.

  7. Bold the title and type it in all CAPS.

  8. Abstract size limits - the body of the abstract is limited to 2000 characters, which may include one table. Inclusion of a table will replace some character space. Figures and/or graphics are not permitted and will be deleted. Titles are limited to 200 characters and are not included in the abstract body character count. Author names and affiliations are not included in either character count.

  9. Review and selection of abstracts: Abstracts will be reviewed by the Program Nominating Committee and selected for inclusion in the program on the basis of scientific content and significance to the field of reproductive medicine.

  10. Authors assume complete responsibility for the integrity and validity of the data at the time of submission.
