Important Considerations

No promotional content of a commercial entity may be included (brand/trade/product names, photos, logos, company names, etc.).

If necessary for clarity, a trade/product name may be included parenthetically once in the materials and methods section, but no more, and not in the abstract title. If more than one company makes the product, all applicable trade names are identified.

Any off-label indications should be clearly marked as such. 

ePoster Fee

ASRA does not charge a fee to submit an abstract. However, $65 will be charged for each abstract actually accepted for ePoster presentation. This payment is non-refundable and partially offsets ASRA’s cost for abstract presentation in the ePoster format. This ePoster fee is generally less expensive than printing a poster; printed posters are not accepted (except for the best of meeting abstracts, see award section below).  The ePoster fee will be charged after abstract acceptance and upon online submission of the ePoster. 

Meeting Pre-Registration

Only abstracts/ePosters by attendees who register at least 3 weeks prior to the meeting will be included in the final program and meeting materials. Meeting registration is refundable according to the meeting cancellation policy. 


Only authors listed on the submitted abstract may present onsite during the meeting. Investigators who have abstracts approved for presentation but fail to attend the meeting three years in a row will be prohibited from submitting abstracts for the following two years. 

ePoster Display

All abstracts accepted for poster presentation during the annual meeting will be available onsite each day using ePoster technology. Multiple plasma screens will be available in a clearly identified viewing area. Posters will be grouped by category and subcategory. The ePosters will not be formally moderated during general viewing hours. Authors are encouraged to be available in the ePoster area during the break times for those attendees who may want to ask questions.

Moderated Poster Sessions

Upon submission, authors will have the option to indicate if they would like to be considered for oral presentation during the annual meeting. A selection of posters are chosen for oral presentation during the moderated poster sessions. The maximum number of moderated sessions will be determined by the scientific/education planning committee and project management team based on program organization and meeting space; ASRA will provide as many opportunities as possible. Moderated poster sessions will include one dedicated session for medically challenging cases. All other sessions will be allocated for presentation of scientific abstracts; these sessions will be structured according to category and subcategory as much as possible. The final number of presentations will be based on the quality of submitted abstracts. Posters will be moderated at various times by various moderators. 9 to 12 abstracts will be assigned per session. Each presenter will be allocated maximum 10 minutes per poster (5 minutes presentation and 5 minutes discussion). 

Award Eligibility 

Membership in ASRA is not required to submit an abstract. However, only abstracts submitted by ASRA members will be considered for the best of meeting awards. 

Best of Meeting Abstracts 

The top 20 highest scoring scientific abstracts that have met all ASRA abstract submission requirements and ASRA membership will be sent to the research committee, which will select 3 best of meeting abstracts.  Best of abstract winners are included in the moderated poster sessions and are also invited to give an oral presentation from the podium as part of the excellence in ASRA awards luncheon. Presenters have a maximum of 3-5 minutes and 5-7 slides for their presentation. Slides have to be sent to the research committee chair at least 2 weeks prior to the meeting. A certificate is given to the winners (mailed by the ASRA office after the meeting), winning abstracts are tagged in the ePoster system, and printed posters are displayed in the meeting registration area (award recipients are responsible for providing a 36”x 48”printed poster; ASRA will reimburse up to $100 for printing costs upon receipt submission). Best of meeting award recipients must be present to receive the award and participate in the above presentation activities.  If a winner is unable to participate, an alternative award winner will be selected.

Resident/Fellow Best of Meeting Abstracts and Research Travel Award

Upon submission, resident/fellow submitters have the option of having their abstract considered for the resident/fellow research travel award.  The top 10 highest scoring resident/fellow scientific abstracts will be sent to the research committee chair who will then select 3 to receive an award.
