Abstracts 2021

The extended Abstract Submission deadline of Wednesday, April 14, 2021 has passed and the submission site is now closed.





All submitted abstracts should represent original work. This does not preclude the use of data that has been previously submitted, however, some aspects of the abstract and presentation should be unique. All abstracts will be considered for a poster presentation. 

Primary presenting author/primary contact authors will receive notification of the status of their submitted abstracts by June. If you do not receive an email notification regarding your abstract by June 30, 2021, please send an email inquiry to meetings@myana.org.

All presenting author/primary contact authors are expected to cover their own conference registration fees. Pre-registration of at least one of your abstract's authors by September 17, 2021 is a prerequisite for its presentation in the Scientific Program and its publication in the Annals printed and electronic format. Please read the ANA 2021 Abstract Policy and Guidelines for further information.

If you wish to withdraw your abstract or are unable to attend ANA’s 2021 Annual Meeting, please email meetings@myana.org by August 31, 2021
