2019 MidWinter Meeting: Call for Abstracts


ARO invites you to submit an abstract for the 42nd Annual Midwinter Meeting being held at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.    


The submission period is August 15 to September 17, 2018.


Abstracts must be submitted through ARO's Abstract Submission Site*. Please note, the structural formatting for all abstract submissions has changed. Review the guidelines before submitting your abstract for the MidWinter Meeting.  


*Please note, when accessing the abstract submission site you must create a new account for that system. Your login for the abstract site is independent from your ARO login.


Common Site Issues
The Collection Central system should work with any desktop or laptop computer running a relatively current version of Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox or Safari. The web browser version should be no older than two years and should have JavaScript enabled. The system does not support tablets or any device running a mobile operating system such as iOS or Android. A fast connection to the Internet (1 Megabyte per second upload speed, or faster) is recommended if submitters will be uploading files. 

All site visitors are advised not to have more than one browser window or tab open to the collection system. Multiple tabs or windows open to the site may result in incomplete or incorrect data in submissions or reviews. 

The most common issues experienced by site visitors are caused by accessing the site from an organization with strong network security restrictions. Problems range from sign in or account issues, pages not loading completely, not getting communication emails, or being blocked from the site entirely. These occur most often on computers within government agencies and hospitals. As these restrictions are often beyond our control, as a quick solution we recommend site visitors experiencing problems at work to try using a home computer with their own Internet connection. 


The Abstract Submission Site is Now Open!
