Interested in presenting at the ACDS Annual Meeting?  Submitting an abstract through the ACDS submission process, allows individuals an opportunity to present research at the Annual Meeting in the form of an oral or poster presentation.

Please read the abstract submission guidelines carefully. The deadline and space requirements are strictly enforced in order to give all authors an equal opportunity to submit their data in the same amount of space and under the same time constraints.

Be sure to include the specific object of the study, the method used (if pertinent), the results, and the conclusions.
