Can I request, that if accepted, my abstract be presented as an oral (slide) presentation?
In order to create a balanced program, it is left up to the Program Committee members to select a poster or slide presentation for each abstract they accept. Requests cannot be accommodated.
Do I need to be a member of ASM to submit an abstract?
No, you do not need to be a member of ASM to submit an abstract.
May I submit more than one abstract?
Yes, you may submit more than one abstract. However, please keep in mind, that if you are listed as the presenting author on more than one abstract, and more than one of your abstracts is accepted and scheduled for the same presentation time, you may have to ask a co-author to make one or more of your presentations.
May I appear as first (presenting) author on more than one abstract?
Yes, you may appear as the first author on more than one abstract. (See answer to above question for further details.)
