Abstract Submission Tips and Tricks
Do not wait until the last day to submit an abstract. There is usually very high traffic on the website and you want to avoid the risk of any technical difficulties.
Do not use the “back” button during the submission process.
Be certain to click “Submit” at the end of the process for a confirmation of receipt. If you do not get confirmation of receipt, DIA did not receive your abstract.
Please review our submission site process document before logging in.
