See Membership Cost and Criteria:
Students can submit as many abstracts as they like.
A maximum of ONE abstract will be accepted per student for each presentation modality. (e.g., maximum of 1 oral presentation and 1 poster presentation per student). If a student has submitted multiple abstracts and multiple abstracts score high enough to be accepted for presentation, the top-ranking abstract will be selected.
If you indicate that you wish for your abstract to be considered for the student competition and it is not selected, your abstract will NOT be considered for presentation for the general sessions.
If you select ‘oral presentation only’, your abstract will not be considered for a poster presentation. If you select ‘poster presentation only’, your abstract will not be considered for an oral presentation. If the “Either oral or poster presentation’ option is selected, the abstract will first be considered for an oral presentation. If the abstract is not selected for an oral presentation, it will be considered equally with all other abstracts submitted for poster presentations.
