Embracing heterogeneity: towards a more inclusive, and patient-tailored clinical care

Hilton Long Beach
701 West Ocean Boulevard
Long Beach, CA 90831


Deadline: 11/7/2021 5:00 PM EST

Abstract Publication and Eligibility: Abstracts previously presented at a meeting are not eligible for submission. Previously published work (in any journal) are not eligible for submission.

Abstract Format: The body of an abstract may not exceed 2400 characters, not including the author information or title. Abstracts must be entered single-spaced with no indents or bullets. Do not include the names of the authors in the body of the abstract. For best results enter the abstract as plain text and use the formatting and special character tools available within the program.

Graphs and Charts: Published abstracts will not be reproduced in color, so any graphic must be legible and understandable when printed in black and white. Graphics cannot exceed 3.25 inches, or 8 cm in width, and must be submitted in .pdf format in one file.

Abstract Confirmation: A confirmation of your submission including your abstract as it will appear if accepted will be sent to the email address used to create the abstract. Please review the abstract to ensure its accuracy. If you do not receive a confirmation upon submission, please check your spam folder. If you still have not received a confirmation email, please contact info@psychosomatic.org.

Abstract Notification: The Main Author of the submission will be notified of the Program Committee's decision by late December, 2022.

Registration: Presenters of accepted abstracts are required to register for and attend the meeting. If the Main Author is not able to attend, a registered co-author may present.

Record your password and abstract ID number when you begin your abstract - there is no automatic "forgot password?" option so you will need to contact info@psychosomatic.org if you need help.
Multiple abstracts may be submitted, but you must complete or log out of one abstract before you can begin another. You may not enter multiple abstracts simultaneously.

How do I save my information if I can't complete the abstract in one sitting?
As soon as you have entered your password and have been assigned an Abstract ID, the program is ready to save your abstract information. Information is saved as you complete each step and use the button at the bottom of each screen.

What if I forget my password or Abstract ID?
If you need help accessing an abstract you have begun but not completed, please email info@psychosomatic.org with the last name of the Main Author and the abstract title. Please note that there may be a delay in responding to such inquiries.

What if I find an error in my submitted abstract?
If you find an error prior to the submission deadline, please email info@psychosomatic.org with the last name of the Main Author and the Abstract ID in the subject line. We will "unsubmit" your abstract so that you can correct it and resubmit it before the deadline. If you find an error after the deadline, please email info@psychosomatic.org with 'ABSTRACT CORRECTION' and the abstract ID in the subject line and we will review your situation with you.

I don't know which version of my abstract was submitted and I can't find my confirmation email.
You can retrieve a copy of your submitted abstract by logging in using the same password and Abstract ID and then select the Print or Email option.

How will the author's information appear?
For abstracts with more than one author, if the Institution, City, State and Country are the same, that information will appear once at the end of all the listed names. Any consecutive identical information will appear only once. Do not include authors names in the body of an abstract.
