Abstract Presentation

At the time of abstract submission, the submitter must identify who will be the presenting author. To be eligible to present, authors will be required to confirm they had full access to all of the data in the study and take responsibility for the integrity of the data, accuracy of the data analysis, and approving the data for presentation.

  • The presenting author need not be the first author, but must be a listed author on the abstract.
  • The presenter is required to speak English when presenting, as this is the designated language of the meeting.
  • Only one presenter is permitted per abstract.
  • Important: The presenting author is the sole point of contact for all abstract co-authors. The ACR will direct all co-author inquiries to the presenting author.

The ACR graciously requests that interested parties please refrain from contacting the ACR directly to obtain information regarding abstract status, notification, distribution, and/or publication dates.
