Call for Abstracts

As part of the Coagulation Testing Quality conference, participants are invited to submit abstracts for poster presentation, demonstrating new information related to laboratory diagnostic aspects of hemostatic disorders (bleeding and thrombosis). Goals of the abstract presentations are to educate and inform about research innovations, share ideas and interests, and network with other participants.

Please note that submitted abstracts will not be printed nor published, hence providing the opportunity to present the abstract at another meeting.

Submission Deadline
Completed abstract applications must be submitted by Monday, August 1.

Selection and Notification
A review committee will evaluate abstracts based on each of the following criteria: scientific content, novelty, applicability to conference and session themes, writing quality, and overall scientific merit. Notification of abstract acceptance and commitment for poster display at the conference will be made by Monday, August 15.

Scholarships will be awarded to the top five abstracts submitted from and presented by laboratory technologists. Scholarships consist of receiving complimentary conference registration (one award per abstract); however, scholarships do not cover travel, lodging, and/or miscellaneous expenses. The review committee will award scholarships based on overall scoring of abstracts.

Registration (for abstracts)
Submitters must register for the conference and are expected to assume costs related to travel, accommodations, and registration.
