The ASARMD Division’s long-standing practice has been to invite proposals, in the form of abstracts, for papers that you wish to present. Proposals should be no more than 250 words in length and follow the format of a typical abstract, which is to say, offer a formal, albeit succinct, summary of the work to be presented, including conclusion(s) to be drawn. Papers should be suitable for 20-minute presentations and not exceed 3000 words (excluding footnotes).
