The receipt, evaluation and assignment of scientific abstracts to specific categories for the Annual Scientific meeting or to other meetings for which the SRI assumes responsibility for managing the program will incur a fee. Thus the following policy has been created to provide partial offset to the cost of such efforts.
Effective immediately, each and every abstract submission must be accompanied with a payment of $40 (USD). This peer abstract cost is non-refundable.
Those abstracts submitted without the appropriate payment will not be reviewed. Nor will they be returned to the author.
It is incumbent on each and every author charged with the responsibility of submitting abstracts to be aware of this policy which will be posted on the SRI website indefinitely along with other instructions regarding appropriate abstract format and submission details.
The SRI maintains the right to reject abstracts that fail to conform to these guidelines.
