Abstract Submission Fee Policies

Abstract Submission Fee

The abstract submission fee is a non-refundable processing fee for each abstract submission based on your membership status at the time of submission. Payment of the fee is not based on acceptance of your abstract submission.

    • ASHG Member Abstract Fee: $0
      • As a member benefit, there is no abstract submission fee for current 2023 ASHG members.
      • To access member rates, login to the submission site using the same email address in your membership profile. If you have trouble logging in, please contact membership@ashg.org.
    • Non-Member Abstract Fee: $50 USD
      • Become a member prior to submitting your abstract to immediately waive the fee.
    • Resource-Limited Country Abstract Fee: $0
Revising Your Abstract

An abstract submission is not considered complete until the submission fee is paid. After paying the submission fee, you can still update your abstract until the deadline: Thursday, June 8, 2023 at 8:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time.

Payment Method

Payments for abstract fees are by credit card only (i.e. Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express) in the abstract submission system. We do not process checks, purchase orders, or wire transfers. There can be no exceptions. If you require an invoice before paying your fee, please contact meetings@ashg.org.

    • Assuming the charge was successful, you will see a new page with a button to click “Continue.” (If there was any issue, you will see information about the reason the payment was not accepted.)
    • You will then be taken back to the Payment step with receipt information showing at the top of the screen. Save or print this screen for your records. You will also receive a copy of your receipt via email.
Registration for Presenters

The abstract submission fee does not register you for the meeting. Separate meeting registration fees apply. All presenters must register to attend ASHG 2023. Registration will open in mid-May.

Withdrawal Policy

Reminder: Do not withdraw a paid abstract submission to make edits or submit a new abstract. Refunds will not be issued for abstracts that are withdrawn, and payment will be required for any resubmissions. Contact ASHG’s Scientific Program Team for assistance with editing or transferring an abstract to an alternate session if needed.

Cancellation/Refund Policy
  • The abstract submission fee is non-refundable. No exceptions.
    • Refunds will not be provided if an abstract is rejected or withdrawn or for any other reason, including visa denial. Payment of the fee is not based on acceptance of your abstract submission.
    • The fee will not be reimbursed or refunded if you become an ASHG member after you’ve submitted an abstract. You must be a current member prior to submitting. Click here to join or renew membership.
