    Submission Instructions & Rules
    Before submitting an abstract, please carefully review the submission rules and instructions and guidelines for categorizing abstracts.

    Accepted Abstracts: Poster Presentation
    All accepted abstracts must be presented in 4' x 4' poster form and displayed in The Exchange. Instructions for poster presentation onsite will be included in the acceptance notifications to presenting authors.

    Accepted Abstracts: ePosters
    As an enhancement to the NACFC program, posters will be submitted electronically for NACFC 2019. ePosters allow participants to view the posters electronically at their convenience, only in The Exchange during the conference. This will provide increased exposure to authors’ posters, in addition to the poster discussion presentation time during the scheduled NACFC poster session. Details regarding ePoster submissions will be included in the acceptance notifications to presenting authors.

    Accepted Abstracts: Thematic Poster Sessions 
    Thematic Poster Sessions consist of two key parts: (1) poster presentations of abstracts focused on a central theme followed by a (2) moderated discussion. These sessions are designed to engage the authors and members of the audience in a discussion that ties together ideas from multiple posters in the session.

    Accepted Abstracts: Oral Presentation
    In addition to being presented in poster form, certain abstracts will be selected for oral presentation for specific Workshop sessions. If an author’s abstract is accepted for oral presentation, they will receive notification with further instructions.

    Best Abstract Awards for Junior Investigators
    First (presenting) authors of abstracts who are enrolled in a graduate program or, at the time of the conference, are a post-doctoral or clinical fellow, are eligible to participate in a competition for two awards: (1) “Junior Investigator Best Abstract in Basic Science Award;" and (2) "Junior Investigator Best Abstract in Clinical Research Award." The five highest scoring abstracts will be chosen for oral presentations during the Junior Investigator Sessions, designed to highlight abstracts by junior investigators in the field of CF basic science and clinical research. The candidate with the best overall abstract and presentation will receive the respective award during NACFC. 

    Information about award eligibility requirements will be provided on the abstract submission website during the abstract submission process. If you would like to participate in this competition and you meet the eligibility criteria, select the appropriate option when submitting your abstract(s).
