Abstract Submission Policy

Abstracts derived from papers already published, either in print or in an online format, are not eligible for consideration to present at SER.  Papers accepted but not yet published may be submitted, but in the event that the paper is published in advance of the SER meeting, the abstract will be withdrawn from presentation.

Please use the following guidance to prepare your abstract for online submission:

  1. All abstracts must be submitted, in English, online. Use sentence case for your title.
  2. Do not include references, figures, tables, or mathematical equations in the abstract. Avoid acronyms and, where necessary, spell them out when used for the first time (ORs, RRs and CIs do not need to be spelled out). Select one topic area from the list below, which will be used to organize concurrent contributed sessions. The abstract should not exceed 2,000 characters, INCLUDING spaces. Author information is in addition to the 2,000 characters.
  3. Presentation of specific data and methodologic details assist reviewers in judging the quality of the research and are weighed more favorably than affirmation of known relations. Clarity and brevity of writing will allow evaluation of the importance of the research. Each abstract is scored by two reviewers. An overall acceptance proportion is applied to each subject area. The allocation of papers therefore represents the number of abstracts submitted for the subject areas.
  4. For the general submission the submitting author will be notified by email on or before April 1, 2018 with a final decision. Notifications for Latebreaker abstracts will be sent on or before May 1, 2018. If you do not receive a notification, please contact Ms. Courtney Long ( after these date.
