Abstract Format

  • Abstracts must be submitted in word format and be no longer than one A4 page, including title, authors, affiliations and any supporting tables and graphs.

  • Titles are limited to 255 characters including spaces. Do not include abbreviations.
  • Authors must include first name and last name. The lead author should be the presenting author.
  • Affiliations should include associated organisation, city and country. Do not include title or degrees.
  • Your abstract must be a maximum of 2,500 characters including spacing (not including your title and author information or any text within tables or images).
  • Authors may include a combination of up to two tables or images per abstract. They must however be included in the A4 page and be legible
  • Abstracts should be structured with:
    - Aim
    - Method
    - Results
    - Conclusions
    - References
  • Standard scientific abbreviations may be used - non-standard abbreviations should be included in parenthesis after the first use of the full word
  • Present sufficient data to support conclusions - it is unsatisfactory to use statements such as 'data will be presented' or 'results will be discussed'
  • Check spelling and grammar. Submitted material will be published in meeting materials - the abstract should, therefore, contain no errors
  • You should provide information about potential sources of conflict of interest. The intent of this disclosure is not to prevent a speaker from making a presentation, but rather to allow the listener to be fully knowledgeable in evaluating the information being presented
  • The abstract submission deadline is 11:59pm, Monday 29 October 2018 (New Zealand Time) or 11:59am, Monday 29 October 2018 (Greenwich Meantime)
