Instructions for Submission of Abstracts and Process for Review of all Submissions

Please read all instructions before preparing the abstract. Individuals may submit more than one abstract, but no individual may be the primary (presenting) author on more than one paper. The first author must be a student member within the MATA. Each student submission must have a certified member sponsor who is a member of the MATA. All abstracts will undergo blind review.

The top three poster submissions will present their research in a moderated session during the MATA Annual Meeting & Symposium. The remaining accepted submissions will be presented in poster format during or in conjunction with the Annual Meeting and Symposium.
