SSRC Overview

Southwestern States Residency Conference planning committee created this portion of the site to assist you in successfully preparing your abstract submission as well as platform and poster presentations. Abstracts are required for all platform presentations. To ensure proper formatting of your documents, please read all the instructions carefully as instructions have changed for this year. Registered names must match all submissions including abstracts, slides, and handouts.


  • Please review our Abstract Submission GuidelinesAbstract Submission Worksheet, and Abstract Submission Example to guide development of your abstract. It is important that the author carefully review and follow all formatting guidelines to ensure approval of submissions. When submitting the abstract worksheet, please be sure to identify what type of project is being presented. For this reason, Residents may be submitting more than one abstract, if applicable.

  • Please be sure to double check the formatting and content of your abstract once it has been transferred into the worksheet and prior to submitting.
