How to Submit Your Abstract
Submitting an abstract online for the ENC is straightforward. You will be asked to enter the following in the online abstract submission form:
- Contact information for the submitting author.
- Title (20 words max), authors, affiliations.
- 120-word short abstract. Please DO NOT embed images and graphical figures in the short abstract. They do not convert for the printed program
- One-page long abstract that may include figures. This may be uploaded as PDF (be sure fonts are embedded) or as Microsoft Word document that ENC will convert to PDF. Please review this sample. Be sure to include the title, authors and affiliations in your long abstract.
When using Adobe Acrobat to prepare a PDF file, specify "Printer Optimized" in the create PDF screen and in Adobe Distiller. Verify that the file will not be locked by opening Adobe Distiller/Job Options/ Security, and making sure that no boxes are clicked. Be sure to embed all fonts. Open Adobe Distiller/Settings/Job Options/Fonts and select "Embed All Fonts."
No abstract will be considered complete until the long abstract has been uploaded.
Abstracts will be reviewed according to the following criteria:
- There must be a fundamental difference between each of the abstracts submitted from a research group.
- The same results may not appear in multiple presentations.
- The results presented in each abstract should add something new to our base of knowledge in either magnetic resonance or a given application area; abstract review will focus on the novel aspects of each submission.
- Abstracts with a substantial commercial content will not be accepted. These papers should be presented in hospitality suites.
