General Guidelines

An abstract must contain sufficient information so that if published it will be a complete report independent of presentation. The text should not contain statements alluding to results or conclusions not presented within the text. 

Submission acknowledges consent to publication of the abstract in the Meeting proceedings publication and Meeting app. The presenting author will be required to register for the Meeting in order to ensure their abstract(s) is included in the final programme. 

All abstracts must be prepared according to these guidelines and the Society Specific Guidelines. 

There is no limit to the number of abstracts that may be submitted by an individual. However, splitting of a body of work into multiple abstracts is discouraged and consolidation into one abstract is preferred.

If you are submitting an abstract for both TSANZ and ANZSRS, you will need to make two separate submissions of this abstract, one for each meeting.
