Abstract Acceptance and Programming
Once a presentation has been scheduled, a first author who is unable to make the presentation in person is asked to notify the ASHG office immediately via
e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that a notation can be included in the program addendum.
There is no fee to submit
an abstract. All abstracts must be submitted by Tuesday, June 4,
2013 at 8:00 pm (U.S. east coast time). All submitting authors
will be asked to confirm the following statements: (1) I have
read, understand, and agree to the rules and guidelines; (2) I
am submitting this abstract with the intent of attending the
ASHG 63rd Annual Meeting and presenting; and (3) I confirm that
each co-author has been informed of this abstract submission and
has agreed to all information as it was submitted.
note: Authors who submit abstracts are not
automatically registered for the meeting.
In order to participate in the meeting and make your
presentation, authors must register for the meeting, and cover
the costs of hotel and travel.
After you submit your abstract, you will receive an
immediate on-screen confirmation of receipt. You will not
receive a separate confirmation e-mail. Please print
this information and keep it for your records. You will need
this information when returning to the submission site.
If you do not receive an on-screen confirmation of receipt, then
your abstract was not successfully submitted and it will not be
reviewed or programmed by the 2013 Program Committee.
Deadline has passed.
To make any changes to an abstract (including author changes), return to the
abstract submission site and select “revise my abstract.” You will need
your abstract control number, personal ID number, and the last name of the first
author listed on the abstract. You are not permitted to change the first
author’s name at the revision site (see instructions below).
Abstract First Author Name Change
Deadline has passed.
If it is critical that you change the name of the first author, you must
first withdraw the abstract and then submit a new abstract with the new
name. First authors cannot be changed under the revisions link.
Deadline has passed.
To withdraw an abstract, return to the submission site and select “withdraw
my abstract.” You will need your abstract control number, personal ID number,
and first author’s last name. Withdrawal requests
must be made by June 6, 2013,
5:00 pm EDT. All accepted abstracts will be published in
the ASHG 2013 Meeting Program and cannot be withdrawn from publication after
June 6 (even at the request of the author and/or principal investigator).
Abstracts not withdrawn by June 6 will be reviewed and programmed by members of
the Program Committee.
Abstracts selected for presentation will be available on the 2013 meeting Web site in late August and are published online. At this time, your abstract and all information will become a matter of public record and may be referenced by ASHG, media relations staff, and others. Please review the abstract licensing agreement/copyright policy under the abstract rules and guidelines for more information. The 2013 meeting Web site will include a searchable Program and an individualized meeting itinerary planner after the abstracts have been posted online. Abstract search and printing stations will also be available on-site in the registration area at the ASHG 2013 Meeting.
Abstract Licensing Agreement
In consideration of acceptance of the abstract by The American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG), the submitting author grants ASHG a nonexclusive, perpetual, worldwide license to copy, reproduce and publish the abstract in ASHG's online or print publication of ASHG abstracts and/or other compilations or collective works to be assembled and owned by ASHG (together, "Collective Works") in any form or medium now existing or hereafter created throughout the world.

It is understood that the submitting author and/or third parties with copyrights shall retain copyright in and to the abstract contributed by the submitting author to a Collective Work. The submitting author affirms that he/she is the author and owner of the abstract and holds all copyrights in and to the abstract, or has secured any third party permissions necessary to grant ASHG the above rights.
