|Annual Meeting Program: AFS Style|
Long (500-word) abstracts are read only by the review committee to determine which proposals will be included in the program. Because they are not published, they do not have to conform to any particular style beyond the norms of readability. Because they are subject to blind review, they should not include any information that will identify the presenter of a paper.
Short Abstracts: Individual Presentation
Short (100-word) abstracts for individual presentations are published alphabetically in the Annual Meeting program book. In its final form, each program book abstract includes the name of the presenter(s), institutional affiliation, presentation title, and the text of the abstract.
Annual meeting proposal forms will ask for each component separately: i.e., a text box each for name, affiliation, title, long and short abstracts. Do not put authors or titles in the abstract text boxes. (Note: Co-presenters may be named at the start of the short abstract text if there is no room on the form: eg, in the short abstract text box, "co-presenter Jane Doe, State University. Abstract text.")
Short Abstracts: Sessions
Short (100-word) abstracts for pre-organized sessions are published together in the program book in order by slot-ids, which are assigned after all sessions have been scheduled. The slot-id essentially designates the time and place of the session. The program book abstract will include only the slot-id, presentation title, and short abstract text.
Annual meeting proposal forms will ask for each component
separately: i.e., a text box each for title, long and short
abstracts. Do not put the title in the abstract text boxes.
