General Instructions:

Abstracts relevant to any of the SLAS2012 tracks are requested and will be reviewed by the SLAS2012 Program Committee. To view a complete list and brief description of all SLAS2012 tracks, please click the following link.
Authors are invited to submit abstracts describing original research on topics relevant to any of the seven program tracks for either poster or podium presentation. Abstracts should describe original work not previously published, and address why the work is novel. Importantly, the abstract should clearly present the research itself and results that have been obtained. Abstracts will be assessed according to the novelty of the work, with an emphasis to abstracts that clearly detail results.
Podium presentations are 30 minutes in length including questions and answers.
Note regarding the SLAS Innovation Award: The SLAS Innovation Award judging process is extensive and requires the panel of judges review and evaluate hundreds of scientific abstract submissions. To ensure your abstract receives optimal consideration, please include information on methods, results and conclusions.
The abstract submitter will serve as the primary contact for SLAS and must have a valid email address.
All abstracts must be submitted electronically via this online abstract submission system.
The body of the abstract may not exceed 450 words.
The title is considered separate from the body of the abstract and is not included in the word limit. Specific formatting requirements are included on the submission form.
It is suggested that you first develop your abstract in a word processing program then copy and paste the information in the appropriate section. There is no spell or grammar check function in the online submission process. Please do not use all capital letters.
Fields denoted with asterisks (*) are required fields.

At the close of the submission period, all abstracts will be reviewed by the SLAS2012 Program Committee to determine which abstracts are accepted into the program. The SLAS2012 Program Committee reserves the right to accept abstracts into tracks other than the one selected by the submitter during the submission process.
Those submitted as podium abstracts but not accepted for the podium program will be reviewed for a poster submission if indicated as such by the submitter during the submission process.
