How to Submit
Deadline Extended: MARCH 1, 2023
Abstract Submissions are now CLOSED for 2023
Submissions should be made by the presenting author. If the abstract is accepted for presentation at the meeting, the presenting author is required to register and attend the annual meeting.
Presenting Author Requirements
All accepted papers will be published online in the May 2023 issue of the Journal of Reproductive Immunology.
All accepted abstracts will be presented in person at the meeting as either a poster or an oral presentation. Poster presentations will compete for awards during the poster sessions. A limited number of abstracts will be selected for short oral presentations in the breakout sessions. Six Gusdon finalists will be selected as featured oral presentations and compete for the Gusdon award during this special session.
Oral presenters will have a total of 15 minutes including Q&A for their presentation at the meeting and should prepare a PowerPoint presentation in 16:9 format with no more than 12 slides.
IF you are selected to present orally AND are from a country that is currently restricting your travel to the US due to Covid-19, you may contact us to pre-record your oral presentation for live playback at the meeting. Authors will still be required to register for the meeting to present their work via video (registration fee covers additional AV costs).
Gusdon Competition for Trainees
Dr. John Gusdon Memorial New Investigator Award is given annually to a new investigator with trainee status who has made a significant contribution by presenting an outstanding research paper during the annual meeting of the ASRI. This award is given in memory of Dr. John P. Gusdon, a founding member of the ASRI, and an advocate of student participation in ASRI Meetings. When you submit your abstract, please check whether you would like to be considered for the Gusdon Award and provide proof of trainee status by letter from supervisor. View the 2022 Gusdon Finalists
Gusdon Finalists will be judged onsite during the Gusdon session. Awards will be presented at the Awards Dinner on Wednesday evening. All finalists must be present.
