Guidelines and Platform Instructions

These instructions/guidelines have been prepared as an aid for organizers to:

  • Provide an understanding of the duties that are required
  • Minimize organizational problems
  • Maintain uniformity in quality standards

We’ve developed a series of platform instructions and guidelines to prepare and assist members during their term. The guidelines and platform instructions have been grouped by the three (3) core tasks: 1. Call for Abstracts, 2. Paper Review Process, 3. Onsite Protocol.

Documents include:

  1. Call for Abstracts
    1. Guidelines for Approving Abstracts
