More About the Conference Proceedings
The ASMS Conference Proceedings is a valuable record of the oral and poster presentations at the meeting. Authors are strongly required to submit their contributions to the Proceedings. Posters and slides from oral presentations may be submitted in their entirety. Alternatively, a summary of the presentation including representative figures (an "extended abstract") may be prepared.
PDF format is required. Refer to the following resources for preparation of your submission:
Remember to Use Standard Fonts. Conversion problems have been known to occur with the use of non-standard fonts. In order to minimize the chance that your submission will contain unreadable/mis-converted text, it is recommended that only standard Windows/Mac fonts be used. (Refer to http://www.msfrontpage.net/fp/ans-standardfonts.htm for additional information about fonts.) A wide variety of alternative software is available for generation of PDF files that should be satisfactory as long as standard fonts are used in the source document.
