    Abstract submission

    The first author must preregister at the time of abstract submission in order for the paper/poster to be considered.

    The deadline for submission of abstracts is December 31, 2017.

    The PPA 2018 Annual Meeting Program Committee will notify the first (or sole) authors upon receipt of their abstracts, review each abstract before accepting it for the Scientific Program, and send a notification of the Committee’s decision by January 31, 2018. 

    Please send the abstract, as an email attachment, to: ppa.vicepres@gmail.com

    Indicate in the title of the attachment: your name, poster or paper, student or regular member (for example: Danforth poster regular or Zakrzewski paper regular).

    Abstract Guidelines

    Abstract form

    Please prepare your abstract in English, single-spaced, Times New Roman 12 pt font.

    The title and authors should be formatted as follows:

    Although authors are free to publish their work in any venue, the topic of abstracts must fall within the aims and scope for the International Journal of Paleopathology, which may be viewed at http://ees.elsevier.com/ijpp/tempdown.asp.

    Please do not submit abstracts for material already put forward for one of the other meetings being held in Austin in April. The program of the AAPA meeting will be checked, and any item accepted for both the AAPA and PPA program will be removed from the PPA program.
