General Guidelines

TSANZ Late-breaking Abstract Submissions have closed. You’ll find further criteria and can submit via the participant portal.

The closing date for TSANZ late-breaking abstracts was Friday 18th January 2019

An abstract must be submitted using the TSANZ abstract template or the ANZSRS abstract template.

An abstract must contain sufficient information so that if published it will be a complete report independent of presentation. The text should not contain statements alluding to results or conclusions not presented within the text. An abstract should be no longer than 300 words (excluding headings, title and author information) and fit within one page (including graphs and tables). 

Submission acknowledges consent for publication of the abstract in the meeting proceedings publication and meeting app. The presenting author will be required to register for the meeting in order to ensure his/her abstract(s) is included in the final program. The deadline for presenting author registration is 1 February 2019.

All abstracts must be prepared according to these guidelines and the society specific guidelines.

There is no limit to the number of abstracts that may be submitted by an individual. However, splitting of a body of work into multiple abstracts is discouraged and consolidation into one abstract is preferred.

If you are submitting an abstract for both TSANZ and ANZSRS, you will need to make two separate submissions of this abstract, one for each meeting.



Before submitting an abstract, please ensure you read the ANZSRS society specific guidelines.

Please download the ANZSRS abstract template to use for submission. An example abstract submission may be viewed here.

Please visit ANZSRS awards criteria for more information about the ANZSRS New Investigator Award. The application form must be submitted to be eligible.
