The ASDP Call for Abstracts offers three categories of abstract submissions for participants interested in presenting their abstract(s) in an educational session at the Annual Meeting.
The General Abstract category is open to all physicians who practice dermatopathology, including residents and fellows. Abstracts will be selected for either oral or poster presentation.
The Duel in Dermatopathology is an oral abstract competition designed especially for residents in dermatology and pathology. Duel abstracts not selected for the competition will be automatically considered for poster presentation.
The Dermatopathology Fellows Abstract category is open to fellows in a dermatopathology training program. Abstracts will be selected for either oral or poster presentation.
There is no limit on the number of abstracts per submitter. All abstracts should be written with the goal of bringing new or updated information to attendees or providing an organized review of older data. The Continuing Education and Research Committee will select all abstract presentations through a blinded review process. Abstract criteria are subject to annual review.
Abstract Submission Criteria
Abstract submissions must adhere to the published submission criteria:
Abstract content must not have been accepted for publication, published or previously presented at another meeting. If work has been published at the time of presentation, this information must be disclosed at the time of presentation.
The same abstract may not be submitted in more than one category. Submissions in the General, Duel and Fellow abstract categories will be automatically considered for a poster if not accepted as an oral presentation. Submissions to the General abstract category may be made as “poster-only” for those not wanting to be considered for oral presentation.
The subject material must be dermatopathology-related, medically and scientifically valid, and should contain new information not previously reported or novel information about the pathophysiology or diagnosis that enhances the understanding of the disease.
Abstract titles must be clear and accurately reflect the content of the abstract.
The abstract must adequately summarize the key scientific content of the presentation.
The hypothesis should be clearly stated.
Scientific methods must be sound and clearly articulated.
Appropriate data and observations should be clearly presented.
Results must be clearly presented and conclusions must accurately reflect the results and directly address the hypothesis.
Institutions and personal or institutional identifiers must not be referenced in the abstract.
Potential conflicts of interest must be disclosed at the time of abstract submission and presentation, and must not introduce bias in the study design.
The content must be free of grammatical and spelling errors.
Non-scientific abstracts will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Abstracts will be evaluated based on the submission criteria using a seven-point scale ranging from poor (1) to outstanding (7).

exceptional teaching value
strong data and conclusions
well-written, with good detail and organization
unusual or rare content
