CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
You are invited to submit abstracts reporting new research and/or clinical cases for presentation. Abstracts will be reviewed by the ANPA Scientific Program Committee. The decision of the Committee is final. All accepted abstracts will be presented as posters. A subset of abstracts will be selected by the ANPA Program Committee for oral presentation, as well.
On-line abstract submission is open. The deadline for receipt of abstracts is November 3, 2014. No abstracts will be accepted after this date. Decisions regarding acceptance will be e-mailed by early December. Notification of the additional invitation to present orally will be e-mailed by late December.
Please note that by submitting an abstract, authors agree to attend the meeting and present their work as a poster if accepted. Posters and oral presentations must be presented by one of the authors listed on the abstract. We ask that each author present no more than 3 posters. Abstracts accepted and presented at the meeting will be published on-line in the spring 2015 issue of the Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences, the official journal of ANPA.

You may stop an abstract entry at any phase and save it for subsequent submission. After submission, you will receive a confirmation via e-mail. The meeting abstract submission process is different from regular journal submissions so please follow the instructions outlined here. The information you receive on the automated journal e-mail response does not apply to the ANPA submissions. Kelly McLaughlin will contact you shortly after the abstract is submitted. She will request that you complete and send back a conflict of interest form because the meeting participants will receive CME credits for viewing your poster and/or attending your Interactive Session. You can also log-on to Manuscript Central any time to check the status of your manuscript. The Editors will inform you via e-mail once a decision has been made.
