Can you edit your proceedings submission (replace your PDF)? Yes, as long as this is done by November 22. To replace your already uploaded PDF. Return to abstract site and click your abstract title. A window will appear allowing you to delete a submission and update.

Note to Submitting Authors of Orals and Posters: ASMS will substitute a PDF of the slides from a speakers talk if the speaker fails to submit to the Proceedings in one of the formats above. For posters we will reverse export file from the mobile app, if there is no upload in mobile app, then your poster will be withdrawn from the program. Please take action on your own, the upload of 100's of missing files is time consuming and delays the release of the Proceedings for all.

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).
