Read detailed guidelines on preparing your submission

Two-Abstract Rule

  • You may submit two volunteered abstracts, as long as one of the abstracts is for a poster presentation.
  • Each submitted abstract must be different in content.
  • If you are invited to submit an abstract in a Pardee Keynote Symposium, Special Session, or a topical session, the invited abstracts do not count against the two-abstract rule.

Poster Presenters

  • You will be provided with one horizontal, free-standing 8-ft-wide by 4-ft-high display board and Velcro for hanging your poster at no charge.
  • Electricity is available for a fee.
  • AM session: Posters will be displayed 9 a.m.–1 p.m., with presenters present 11 a.m.–1 p.m.
  • PM session: Posters will be displayed 2–6 p.m., with presenters present 4–6 p.m.
  • All live poster presentations will take place in person in Denver.
  • If you are unable to attend the meeting in person, you may upload an ePoster which will be viewable online to all registered attendees. You must be registered for the meeting in order to take advantage of this option. 

Oral Presenters

The normal length of an oral presentation is 12 minutes plus three minutes for questions and answers. You must visit the Speaker Ready Room at least 24 hours before your scheduled presentation. All technical session rooms will be equipped with a PC Windows 10/MS Office 2013. Presentations should be prepared using a 16:9 screen ratio.

If you are unable to attend the meeting in person, you may present via Zoom. You must be registered for the meeting in order to take advantage of this option. Plus, you must attend the session and present during your scheduled time. 

Hybrid Events

GSA is planning an in-person meeting in Denver, Colorado, USA. We will be offering an online component to all technical sessions, in addition to the GSA Presidential Address, Pardee Keynote Symposia, and the GSA Noontime Lectures.


Abstracts Submission: Expected Behavior

The submission of an abstract implies a sincere intent to present the submitted research during the meeting. Authors and presenters are expected to display integrity in disseminating their research; adhere to the content and conclusions of abstracts as submitted and reviewed; remain gracious by offering collaborators the opportunity for recognition as a co-author; make sure that listed co-authors have made a bona fide contribution to the project, are aware of their inclusion, and have accepted that recognition; and be diligent in preparing a polished product that conveys high quality scholarship. GSA strives to promote diversity among conveners and presenters when organizing panels, keynotes, and other invitational sessions.
