  • There is a 300-word limit, excluding spaces, authors, and institutions.
  • The title of your abstract should include significant words that reflect the content of the abstract but not refer to the study results or conclusions.
  • Do not use proprietary names alone in the title or body of the abstract. If necessary, you may include a proprietary name in parentheses directly after the generic name on first use in the body of the abstract.
