Abstracts are submitted via the Abstract Manager. Text font/size will be formatted automatically as information is entered, either by copying and pasting or typing in directly. Editing is permitted after upload, and special characters may be selected. There are separate boxes to enter the following:

When you submit your abstract you will be offered the choice of Oral Presentation or Speed Talk.
