WHAT ARE THE STEPS INVOLVED IN UPLOADING MY ABSTRACT?

The first step in uploading your abstract is to record your personal details on your own 'Currinda Profile'. If you have already completed it for your registration or another ASN event, you will not have to repeat this, just 'log in' to your Currinda Profile. As you complete your registration you will receive a confirmation email. You will be able to upload your abstract via your personal profile.

You can use your email and password to access your abstract submission at any time.
The presenting author must be the person submitting the abstract and they must do this from their own 'Currinda profile'.

You can cut and paste your abstract in several simple steps. The benefits of this system are many but include:

  • Allowing you to preview your abstract and make modifications to your satisfaction.
  • Ensuring you know your lodgement is completed as you will receive an immediate email confirmation.
  • Ensuring accurate indexing of all authors in the abstract book.
  • Ensuring consistent presentation of all abstracts in the proceedings (overarching formatting is imposed).

When you've finished the submission you will receive a confirmation email with your Abstract Submission Reference Number. You can view or edit your abstract by returning to your Currinda profile.

If you do not receive this confirmation email, please contact ASN Events.

AM I ABLE TO MAKE CHANGES TO MY SUBMISSION AFTER IT HAS BEEN FINALISED?
