    The presenting author/s of all accepted abstracts must register and pay the applicable registration fee by Monday 30 September 2024. If registration isn’t completed by this date, the organising committee reserve the right to remove the presentation from the program.

All submitted abstracts will be blind reviewed by at least three reviewers.

In evaluating each abstract, reviewers will be unaware of authors or institutions involved with the work described in the abstract. (Abstracts will be suitably anonymised by the program committee before being sent out to reviewers).

The reviewers will assign accepted abstracts either to oral or poster presentation.

Notification of the outcome of the review and acceptances will be sent to the contact person (this should be the first presenting author) in late September 2024.

Only the contact person will be notified of acceptance or non- acceptance, and it is their responsibility to notify all other authors about the outcome of the reviewers’ decision.

For all accepted abstracts, further details regarding the oral presentation (PowerPoint presentation) and poster presentation (poster size, format, style and layout etc) will be communicated to the contact person as appropriate.

The duration of each oral presentation will be determined by the committee.

Only HA members are eligible for ASM awards
