Please note that the space available for presentations is limited and the Congress attracts a large number of submissions. Preference will be given to abstracts of the highest quality as judged by the Science, Prizes, Awards and Research Committee (SPARC) of the ASA and NZSA.
The eligibility criteria for ASA and NZSA prize categories are described in the Presentation Formats and Prize Description section. The quality of the abstract is rated based on the content (originality, methods, data analysis and conclusion), the clinical relevance and the quality of the written text.
All applicants, successful or otherwise, will be notified within an appropriate time frame to allow registration during the Early Bird Registration phase.
Please note: Applicants may be offered a presentation format different to that applied for and not all applications may be accepted.
