SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

Abstract Preparation
Authors must submit their abstract electronically. This is the ONLY option for abstract submission.

Title: Title should be brief, clearly indicating the nature of the presentation. Title should be in bold font and mixed case font followed by a single return. Do not put a period at the end of the title. 
Example: This is a Properly Formatted Abstract Title

Category: Please select the TWIG category that your abstract falls under. You can select your primary, secondary, and tertiary preference for categories, but only one is required.

Authors: This is where you will enter your authors and it will be separate from your abstract body. Please enter information in the fields provided and the system with format it for you automatically. Complete contact information (name, mailing address, and e-mail) for each author listed on the abstract must be entered before submitting the abstract file.

Disclosure InformationSubmitting disclosures is a step when entering abstract authors. It will be the same step under each individual speaker. In order for your colleagues to properly evaluate the information, analysis and opinions presented in your abstract, it is important that they be informed of potential conflicts of interest pertinent to the research submitted. Therefore, conference management requires that all authors provide any relevant information concerning personal or professional circumstances and relationships that might reasonably be expected to affect the author’s view on the subject. Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Stock options or bond holdings in a for-profit corporation or self-directed pension plan
  • Employment (full or part-time)
  • Ownership or partnership
  • Consulting fees or other remuneration (payment)
  • Non-remunerative positions of influence such as officer, board member, trustee, or public spokesperson
  • Receipt of royalties
  • Speakers bureau

Appropriate disclosure will be stated in the scientific program and the abstract volume. If you do not have anything to disclose, you must indicate this on the online abstract submission form. The disclosure information you provide will not influence the review of your abstract. Abstracts will not be reviewed without proper completion of the disclosure section on the abstract submission form. Disclosure information for all authors is required upon abstract submission.

Keyword(s): Please enter a minimum of one keyword and a maximum of 5 keywords.

Abstract: The abstract should clearly describe the nature of the research and the problem it addresses and be presented in such language as to be understood by scientists representing the multi-disciplinary nature of tissue engineering. The abstract should summarize the purpose/objective of the research, the methodology employed, the results, and the conclusion/significance and will be split into these four categories.

  • The abstract length is limited to 250 words total across all four sections. These areas should not include authors, disclosures, or references.
  • Please no figures or tables in the abstract.
  • References and acknowledgements are not needed in this abstract process.

Presentation Preference: Please choose your preferred method of presentation (Oral, Poster, or Oral or Poster) where indicated. Your preference will be noted by the reviewers. Final determination will be made by the Program Planning Committee.

Publication: All abstracts will be published on the TERMIS-AM website. All authors agree to the submission and the publication of the abstract, if accepted.

Demographics: You can select if you are a Student or Young Investigator here. Please fill out the other demographic information if you feel comfortable. These questions help us promote diversity within our abstract presenters.

You will then have an opportunity to review and edit your work before submitting the abstract.

Submission: The final step before submitting your abstract will allow you the opportunity to review and edit your work and make any needed edits. Once an abstract is submitted no further edits can be made.

Abstract Withdrawals

If the abstract must be withdrawn, the TERMIS-AM office must be notified in writing at least ONE month prior to the meeting via e-mail to amconf@termis.org.

NOTE: ALL PRESENTERS ARE EXPECTED TO COVER THEIR OWN TRAVEL AND LODGING EXPENSES AND PAY THE CONFERENCE REGISTRATION FEES.

Registration Requirements

Accepted authors are expected to pay their own travel expenses and conference registration fee(s). Dates of presentation cannot be guaranteed.

If an abstract has been accepted as a five-minute rapid fire presentation, a poster presentation will also be required.
