Additional Guidance for Answering 'Presenting Author will be in-person at conference?' in Abstract Submission
For presenters who are unsure of how to answer the question ‘presenting author will be in-person in at conference? yes/no’, we encourage you to be optimistic if you would like to attend and believe this is a reasonable possibility for the presenting author.
If a presenting author for an in-person oral or in-person poster discovers that they are not able to travel to present in-person in Minneapolis, a co-author on the abstract can present instead. If this is not possible, withdrawal of the abstract can be requested.
If you are scheduled to make an oral or poster presentation but then discover that you cannot attend the conference in person, contact us ASAP to change the presenting co-author or to withdraw the abstract.
Why Do I receive Server Error message?
This is usually because you have pasted in text with special characters/symbols or sub- / super-script. If you receive this error message go to step 1 of your abstract and use the Special Character tool and sub-/super-script in the built-in Editor. See image below. We have found that replacing special characters/symbols using the Insert Special Character tool fixes the problem!
