Abstracts should include completed analyses and “findings to be presented” abstracts will not be considered.   Eligible research must have been conducted in international settings by international researchers, domestic researchers, or binational teams.

Abstract Mentor Program:

The program is completely independent of the conference abstract review and selection process. The Abstract Mentor Programme is now open and will close on January 22, 2014. Read more about the Abstract Mentor Programme.
