More About the Conference Proceedings

The official 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:
  1. Guidelines for Preparation of "extended abstract"
  2. Guidance for Generation of PDF (for Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft products).
