Abstract submission FAQs

Where do I submit my abstract?
Submit your abstract via the Abstract Submission Portal. Instructions on how to submit your abstract can be found on the home page of the portal.
Do I need to use a template?
Yes – you will need to format your abstract using the abstract template. This can be found within the Abstract Submission Portal.
How long does the abstract review process take?
The abstract review process begins after the abstract submission deadline has passed. It usually takes around four weeks for the organising committee to review all submitted abstracts and reach a decision. This may take longer if the number of abstracts submitted exceeds expectations.
How will I know if my abstract has been accepted?
We will contact you via email regardless of the outcome.
I need to update my abstract. How do I do this?

Once you have submitted your abstract you cannot replace it in the Abstract Submission Portal. Email your updated abstract to conference@ausimm.com and we will upload it for you.
