How to Search for Abstracts

  • Searching for Orals- use the Courses/Sessions option, select the Keyword Search option, and type the word “plenary” into the search bar. The search will pull in all of the oral abstracts, and will “bucket” them by date and sort them in alphabetical order by title. The search will also pull in the general details for each paper session, since those include the word “plenary” in their event data. Each oral displays with its final ID number in front of its title.
  • Searching for Posters- use the Posters option and select one of the subsequent options – whether by day, category, by number, etc.
  • Searching for Video Forum abstracts- follow the same process as above but instead type “Video Forum” into the Keyword Search.
  • Search by Day- use the Courses/Sessions option, select the Browse By Date option, select the date, then type the word “plenary” into the search bar. The results will display in chronological order, and will include badges indicating award winners and whether Spanish interpretation will be provided for an abstract.
