Submission Process

  • The abstract submission process is a step-by-step process - you will not be able to advance to the next step until you have completed the requirements on the current step.
  • DO NOT use your browser's Back button while submitting. Use the links in the left frame (Abstract Control Panel) of the submission page.
  • You can access any completed step at any time during the process, even after concluding your submission. Abstracts can be edited or withdrawn at any time before the deadline.
  • It is not necessary to complete the submission process in one session. After you submit the title of your abstract you will receive an e-mail with a link back to your submission.
  • Make note of your ID and Password - you can use it to log in below.

Helpful Hints

  • Mac users are encouraged to use Mozilla Firefox to submit their abstracts.
  • For authors who are ASH members the e-mail address on file with ASH should be used. If that e-mail address is no longer their preferred address, the current preferred e-mail should be updated with the ASH membership department FIRST.
  • When adding authors to the abstract, you will be able to search the ASH membership database. Be sure to always use a matching result, even if some of the contact information displayed is out of date. You will be given the opportunity to update it after selecting it. Do not enter a person from scratch if they already exist in the database.
  • Please note in order for affiliations to be grouped properly, you must enter the exact same information for the Affiliation, Department, City, and Country fields. If the information in one of these fields deviates from other people that should be grouped together under one affiliation, there will be a new affiliation listed and it would therefore not group with others that you had intended.

    For example: If you list one person's department as "Department of Hematology" and another person's department as "Hematology", these will not group properly. They must be the same, like "Department of Hematology".
