Abstract Submission


Abstract submission is now open. 

The deadline to submit has now been extended to April 23, 2020 11:59 PM PST in response to the ongoing challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

All submitted abstracts should represent original  work. This does not preclude the use of data that has been previously submitted, however, some aspect of the abstract and presentation should be unique. All abstracts will be considered for a poster presentation. In addition, each submitter will have the option to submit their abstract for consideration as an oral presentation during a Special Interest Group (SIG) session. This option is located under the "Award Information" step during the abstract submission process. 

Presenting/contact authors will receive notification of the status of their submitted abstracts by June 2020. If you do not receive an email notification regarding your abstract by July 1, 2020, please send an email inquiry to meetings@myana.org.

All poster presenters are expected to cover their own travel and lodging, as well as the conference registration fees. Pre-registration of at least one of your abstract's authors by September 8, 2020 is a prerequisite for its presentation in the Scientific Program and its publication in the Annals printed and electronic format. Please read the ANA 2020 Abstract Policy and Guidelines for further information.

If you wish to withdraw your abstract or are unable to attend ANA’s 2020 Annual Meeting, please email meetings@myana.org by August 31, 2020
