Withdrawal Policy

Acceptance of the abstract by the review committee obligates the author to be present. If circumstances prevent attendance, the author must arrange for the poster to be presented by a substitute, preferably a co-author. If you wish to withdraw your abstract, you must submit your request in writing by July 12, 2021 to Caitlin Eastman at ceastman@naccme.com including the abstract title and first author. Failure to comply may result in ineligibility for future AMP meeting abstract submissions as first author.

No-Show Policy

On rare occasions, presenters scheduled to present their poster fail to show up and have not notified AMP of the change in plans. When presenters do not appear to present their poster, the planning efforts of the Abstract Committee in providing a quality program are diminished significantly, there are significant cost implications, and the audience is unnecessarily disappointed with empty poster boards. Staff will audit all posters for no shows and this may result in ineligibility for future AMP meetings.
