AMP 2013 Annual Meeting

Genomics. Proteomics. Informatics. Optimizing Patient Care.

Abstract submission period is

April 1 - May 31, 2013.

This three-day event will feature more than 25 hours of cutting-edge sessions, a keynote presentation by the AMP 2013 Award for Excellence Recipient, nearly 400 posters, 150 exhibitors, and countless opportunities to interact directly with your colleagues.

The meeting is preceded by one day of Corporate-Sponsored Workshops featuring the latest scientific advances and instrumentation. Corporate exhibits, lunches, and casual social gatherings offer opportunities for networking and further exchange with molecular laboratory professionals. Plan to arrive early to take advantage of this free event.

A special feature of the meeting is the Molecular Pathology Outreach Course, Current Applications of Molecular Pathology: Real Time Updates and Case Studies, a one-day course for pathologists, laboratory directors and technologists who have little experience with molecular pathology testing. Registration for the Molecular Pathology Outreach Course is separate from registration for the scientific sessions.

Scientific Content Up to Date
Submission Info
    1. The Corresponding (Submitting) Author is the individual who submits the abstract and is the contact person for all correspondence from AMP. The Corresponding Author has the following responsibilities:
      • The Corresponding Author verifies that all authors agree to the publication of the abstract in JMD.
      • The Corresponding Author verifies that all authors agree, and any supervisors have given permission, to the presentation of a scientific poster at the annual meeting.
      • The Corresponding Author is responsible for notifying all other authors of acceptance, rejection, scheduling and any other information provided by AMP.
      • The Corresponding Author is responsible for notifying the Presenting (First) Author of the AMP Rules for Poster Display and any other information provided by AMP. Young Investigator Award applicants are responsible for notifying their faculty mentors of the additional rules for poster display for award (see “AWARDS INFORMATION” section below).
      • The Corresponding Author is responsible for compliance with the AMP Scientific Integrity Policy.


    1. The First Author is also considered the Presenting Author and has the following responsibilities:
      • The Presenting Author is expected to register for the Annual Meeting and attend the poster at the assigned time period to discuss the study and answer questions. If the Presenting Author is unable to attend the Annual Meeting to present the poster, every effort should be made to arrange for one of the other authors to present the poster. Both AMP ( and the Annual Meeting Program Chair, Dr. Franklin R. Cockerill ( must be notified. Failure to defend the study within the poster is a violation of the AMP Scientific Integrity Policy and may result in forfeiture of future abstract submission privileges.
      • The Presenting Author is expected to ensure that the abstract poster conforms to the Rules for Poster Display at the Annual Meeting (i.e. poster display size, format, and schedule).


  1. Please note that accepted abstracts that have not been previously published as either an abstract or a paper will be eligible for publication in the November 2013 issue of JMD. Abstracts that have been previously published or that are under consideration as an abstract for another meeting that occurs prior to November 2013 will be rejected. 

  2. IMPORTANT: A disclosure report of relevant financial relationships is required for each author of a submitted abstract. Therefore, we recommend that you collect disclosure information from each author before you begin your abstract submission in order to expedite the online entry process. Each time you add an author's name during the online submission process, you will be asked to complete a disclosure report that is specific to that author. Employees of commercial entities should disclose employment in this section. Noting the company name in the Author Information field is not sufficient.
Editorial Guidelines for Presented Content:

Abstracts that are not submitted properly will receive an administrative reject and will not be reviewed.

  1. Abstracts must be submitted properly. The online system is a database, with data fields (title, author 1, author 2, author 3, etc) that are used to generate the published abstracts. Therefore, pay careful attention to the submission instructions and to the submission process, including spelling, capitalization, author names, etc. Ask for technical support (see link at top of submission screens) if you are not sure.

  2. All abstracts must include the required elements/information listed below; each element must be inserted in its designated text field.
    • Introduction / Background: a brief discussion of the background or rationale of the study and/or the question addressed
    • Materials and Methods: the experimental approach, materials, and methods used in the study
    • Results: the data and results obtained in the study
    • Conclusions: the conclusions and/or implications of the results

  3. Abstract Limits:
    • Number of authors: 30
    • Abstract Title: 200 characters
    • Abstract Content: 400 words -- total for all element fields

  4. You may include Greek letters and special symbols, e.g. ° (degree sign), ® (registered trademark), etc. However, the system will not preserve tables, special text formatting such as bold, italics, superscript, etc. Tables may be included in your poster, but data must be reported in narrative format in the abstract submission.
  1. Only AMP Regular Members are eligible to submit abstracts. Associate Members and non-members must have a Regular Member sponsor their abstract. If you are not a Regular member of AMP, join now to submit your abstract today. You may submit an abstract and apply to join AMP on the same day, all the way to abstract submission deadline.

  2. Your abstract will be rated using four criteria:
    • Originality and Clarity
    • Novelty
    • Scientific Merit/Rigor
    • Appropriate Conclusions

  3. Summary: Grounds for abstract rejection are:
    • Failure to follow directions in 1-5.
    • Abstracts that are not eligible for publication in JMD, i.e., have been submitted to another publication or to another meeting that occurs prior to November 2013.
    • Abstract contains no scientific data or has only a promise of future data.
    • Duplicate abstracts are submitted.
    • Member’s or Sponsor's membership dues are not paid.
    • Sponsor or any author violated any of the AMP rules for presentation at the previous meeting, e.g. the authors failed to present a poster without notifying AMP prior to the meeting.

    The five most common reasons for rejection are:
    • Previously presented/published
    • Poor organization/clarity
    • Does not provide novel information
    • Insufficient scientific quality
    • Insufficient data
