Late Breaking Abstracts

SRI Late Breaking Abstract submission closed January 27, 2017. Late breaking abstract notifications were sent by email from Coe Truman, abstract processor for SRI, on February 22, 2017. If you are presenting a late breaking abstract, SRI will extend the advanced registration rate for you. Please complete a paper registration form and send to no later than Wednesday, March 1 to receive the advanced rates. All registrations received after March 1, 2017 will need to be done at the meeting and you will no longer receive the reduced registration rates.

Late Breaking Abstract Submission Guidelines

The purpose of the late breaking submission of abstracts is to give researchers the opportunity to report recently generated research on important basic, translational or clinical discoveries in women's reproductive health. Here are a few guidelines:

  • Research previously presented will not be accepted.
  • Case Reports are not generally encouraged for submission as late-breaking abstracts unless they significantly advance the field of reproductive science.
  • Membership in SRI is not a prerequisite for participating in the program.

Note: The deadline will remain firm and any late-breaking abstracts received after the deadline will not be accepted. No changes or withdrawals will be allowed for late-breaking abstracts.

Four late breaking abstracts will be chosen for oral presentations in our "Hot Topics" session on Saturday, March 18 from 12:15 p.m. - 1:45 p.m. EST. Most accepted abstracts will be poster presentations and will be available for viewing on the SRI meeting website. Late breaking abstracts will not be published in the meeting abstract book or final program.

For technical support while submitting your abstract, please contact or call Coe Truman at +1 (217) 398-1792 Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Central Standard Time.

Prior Publication Policy

  • Late breaking abstracts cannot contain data previously presented at a national meeting within the US at the time of abstract submission. 
  • Late breaking abstracts cannot contain data already accepted for publication in any online or PubMed indexed venue at the time of abstract submission. 
  • Violators will be subject to abstract withdrawal, and may be barred from presenting at future SRI meetings.

Evaluation of Abstracts

Abstracts will be scored based on the following considerations:

  1. Originality/Innovation: Is the idea or approach novel or is the work primarily confirmatory and/or a direct extension of previous work?
  2. Significance/Relevance: Does the work address an important problem?
  3. Objective/Hypothesis: Is an objective, specific research question and/or hypothesis stated?
  4. Methods: Are the methods described? Are the methods employed appropriate to the research question? Were new methods used and validated?
  5. Results: Are the results described clearly and succinctly? Was data evaluated statistically?
  6. Discussion: Is the conclusion supported by the data
