  • Accepted Late Breaking abstracts will be presented as a poster presentation.
  • The name used in the abstract submission will be displayed as the presenter in the online agenda.
  • Emails sent by ABI2020 to abstract presenters will be sent to the email address provided in the abstract submission.
  • It is the responsibility of that recipient to ensure that the actual presenter receives all communications from the time of submission until after the conference.

*Submissions must be data-driven or assessment/treatment model descriptions.

The abstract word limit will be 450 words with English characters; if you use accents, umlauts, etc., the abstract will count them as additional words (please use the Special Characters keyboard).

Review Process

The Educational Planning Committee is currently under review of the regular abstracts and will determine which abstracts receive awards, as well as the most appropriate presentation format (oral or poster) for each accepted abstract.


Awards will be given to the top scoring abstracts submitted in each of the main categories. For details on Abstract Awards, click here.

Accepted abstracts will be published in a supplemental issue of the Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation.
