To qualify for presentation as an emerging science abstract, the submitted research should present findings within the thematic areas for Delivery Science Summit, for which the data was not available by the regular abstract deadline of April 27, 2015.
- Abstracts previously submitted to the regular call for abstracts are not eligible for submission to the call for emerging science abstracts. This is not a means of updating a previously submitted abstract.
- Abstract submissions will follow a similar format to the regular Call for Abstracts. They will undergo peer review and scoring similar to other abstracts. One additional question will require authors to provide information explaining why their work qualifies as emerging science, using the criteria noted in Guidelines for Abstract Submission.
- Researchers submitting emerging science abstracts are subject to the same guidelines as previously described. Primary authors will be notified by July 27, 2015, as to their acceptance status.
