1. Do I need to be a member of IADR to submit an abstract? No. However, IADR members receive a reduced registration rate. Your membership must be paid for 2020 in order to be eligible for the reduced member pricing.
2. How do I know if my abstract was successfully received? In Step 5 of the submission process, you will be asked to review all information you have entered for your abstract. If there are any incomplete steps, you will not be able to submit your abstract and it will remain in Draft status until you reach full completion. You will be able to view a proof of your abstract in this step. You must click Submit button. You will also receive a confirmation email from the system following successful submission of your abstract. This confirmation will also be available in your ScholarOne Abstracts Message Center.
3. Is there a word limit imposed on abstract titles? Yes, all abstract titles must be 10 words or less
4. Can I change my Scientific Group/Network to a different group after I complete my submission?
Yes, you may return to your submission at any time prior to the abstract deadline to transfer your abstract to a different group by returning the completed abstract to Draft and editing the Scientific Group/Network selection in Step 2. Be sure to save your changes and resubmit your abstract. Draft abstracts will not be reviewed.
5. What is the abstract deadline? April 23, 2020.
7. Can I make changes to my abstract text after the deadline? No. IADR does not permit modifications to abstract text after the deadline under any circumstances. It is very important that you submit an error free abstract text.
8. If I forget to add an author, can I do so after the abstract deadline? Yes, you can still add an author if necessary by emailing the [email protected]. However, please make every attempt to add all authors during the abstract submission process. We cannot guarantee to make the change (due to workload).
9. Can I submit more than one abstract (excluding session proposals/keynotes) as an abstract presenter? No. IADR permits authors to submit one abstract only as a presenting author. You may be listed as a co-author on more than one abstract. If you submit more than one abstract as a presenter, you will be asked to delete one of the submissions. If your response is not received, one of the submissions will be automatically deleted and will not be reviewed.
10. When I submit my abstract, how do I indicate my mode preference? You will be asked to submit your presentation mode preference at the time of submission (oral, poster or no preference). IADR makes every attempt to provide you with your first choice, but there is no guarantee as a number of programming factors must be taken into account during the programming finalization process. The Group Program Chair makes the final decision regarding presentation mode.
11. Should I put the abstract title, authors and affiliations in the text of my abstract? No. These items will be collected separately during the abstract submission process. References are not collected.
12. Is there a limit on the number of co-authors that I can add to my abstract? No.
13. Can I submit previously published or presented work? No, all abstracts must be original research. Abstracts cannot be submitted if the research represented by the abstract will be published and/or presented at any other national or international meeting prior to September 21, 2019.
14. If I make a mistake during the abstract submission process, do I need to start a new submission?
No. You can make changes to your abstract submission at any time prior to the deadline by logging into your ScholarOne Account and return the abstract to Draft and selecting to Edit Draft. Se sure to save your changes and resubmit your abstracts. Draft abstracts will not be reviewed.
15. Will IADR list my department in the Program Book? No. IADR will only list the affiliation/institution of the presenting author in the Program Book due to space limitations. Please make every attempt to list your department/branch separately from your affiliation/institution record.
16. Will IADR edit my abstract? No. Once you submit your abstract, it will not be edited in any way for content. Typographical or grammatical errors that appear in your abstract submission will also appear in the final online Scientific Program. Abstracts may be formatted only to follow IADR publication guidelines or requirements.
