Late-Breaking Abstract Submission Site for SOT 2015 Closes January 12
Author: Marilyn Matevia, HSUS
From SOT, a reminder that the Late-Breaking Abstract Submission Site closes January 12:
“Your abstract must be submitted online by 11:59 pm EST on the posted deadline.
Please select the Late Breaking Submission option in the submission section of the website [https://sot2015.abstractcentral.com/]. (The “Abstract Submission” option applies to the October deadline and is now closed. If you do not see the Late Breaking option, please click on your name on the upper right, then on Access to add the appropriate role to your account.)
An important criteria for abstract submission during this time is that the research must be new and of sufficient scientific importance to merit special consideration after the standard abstract deadline. The abstract should describe high-impact original research that could not be completed prior to the original deadline.
Additional criteria that qualify an abstract to be accepted during this final submission phase include:
• All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Program Committee and held to the same standards used to evaluate abstracts submitted for the original deadline.
• Your abstract should not be a revision of a previously-submitted one that was not accepted unless you received specific communication from the Scientific Program Committee suggesting that resubmission during the late abstract period may be appropriate.
• Scientists who had to wait until after the original October deadline to submit due to funding issues are encouraged to submit an abstract for consideration.
• Not more than one abstract will be accepted by the same presenting author.
All abstracts accepted during this final submission phase will be programmed for Thursday, March 26, from 8:30 am to 12:00 noon. These abstracts will not be printed in the Program, but will be accessible through the SOT Mobile Event App and Online Planner. A PDF supplement of the accepted abstracts will be available to download via the SOT website in early March, prior to the Annual Meeting.”
