There are many different ways to prepare an abstract for a meeting. This is the consensus format that we have decided upon for our meeting. Your title should concisely state the overall topic of your presentation using no more than 80 characters. Capitalization is required for the first letter of the title, but is optional for other letters in the title. Below your title, you should list all authors in the order that you want them to appear. You should indicate the presenting author in bold-face type. Affiliations for each author should be indicated by superscript numbers and then listed listed below the author line after the word “Affiliations” and a colon. Please include a blank line space between the author line and the affiliations block. Please separate each unique affiliation with a semicolon. The main text of the abstract should be separated from the affiliations block by a blank line space. Main text of the abstract should be a maximum of 250 words and should provide sufficient detail to understand the background, hypothesis, methods, results, and conclusions of the study. All accepted abstracts will be published in the conference agenda. Please respect the following formatting constraints: Calibri, font size 12, margins (1 inch side and 1 inch top and bottom), single line spacing.
