Trainees, students, and postdoctoral fellows are eligible to have their abstracts reviewed for poster awards. Please indicate on the submission form if you would like to be considered.

Note: You will be able to edit your submission until December 1, 2023.

Formatting: (See below for example)

Only the first author's affiliations should be included at the end of the author list due to space limitations for publication in the Journal of Pain.

Double-check the spelling of all author names and make sure all authors are included.

Present the complete name of the first author’s affiliation. National Institutes of Health vs. NIH

The abstract should be written all in one fluid paragraph without subheadings or indentations.

No figures or tables are permitted.

Capitalize each word in the title; abbreviations are not permitted.

If possible, please avoid using special characters in the text. (mean age§SD=39.43§12.58)

Refrain from including numbered references/bibliography. Authors who wish to cite specific research may do so parenthetically, such as (Palermo, 2019).

Funded sources may be included at the end of the abstract. Example - Funding: RO1AGO4891.

NOTE: You'll need to insert the text of the abstract in the submission portal and upload a Word document of your abstract.

Please organize the body of the abstract as follows:

1. A statement of the purpose of the study.

2. An outline of the methods used.

3. A summary of the results is presented in sufficient detail to support the conclusions.

4. A statement of the conclusions reached. It is not satisfactory to state that “the results will be discussed.”

NOTE: Abstracts submitted that DO NOT FOLLOW these formatting guidelines will be rejected and sent back to the primary contact.
