The deadline for receipt of abstracts is Friday, August 3, 2007 at 5:00 pm EDT. Please proof your abstract before submission. NOTE: Abstracts are no longer accepted via email. Contributed abstracts may be submitted only via the web in accordance with the instructions on the APS website at http://abstracts.aps.org.

IMPORTANT: APS Policy on abstract submission

Before submitting an abstract, please note the following APS policy. For the regular program, authors of contributed abstracts are limited to one abstract (oral or poster) on which they appear as first author. Furthermore, the first author of the abstract should always be the presenting author.  Out of courtesy to attendees of the meeting, an abstract should not be submitted if the first listed author does not actually plan to attend the meeting. APS policy indicates that if more than one abstract is submitted with the same first author, one abstract will be placed in a regular session while the other abstracts may receive supplemental status, which means that they will be placed in the meeting program on the basis of available time, at the discretion of the meeting organizers. The intention of this policy is that no person should present more than one contributed paper. Invited speakers may submit one contributed abstract in addition to their invited abstract.

To submit an abstract (http://abstracts.aps.org) :

To submit a contributed abstract using the online web submission process, an author needs to know three things:

1.  the number and ordering of authors and collaborators;

2.  the sorting category below; and

3.  the abstract content.

The web page will guide you through the abstract submission. It may be useful to try a test submission before submitting the final abstract. Log onto http://abstracts.aps.org and select "Prepare an abstract", then select "Test web abstract".  Follow the directions online to create a practice abstract. When you are ready to submit the abstract online, select the DFD 2007 Meeting by clicking the appropriate button. A form will be created for you. Simply input the information.

Invited speakers should refer to their letter of invitation for instructions on locating the invited speaker abstract template.

For questions regarding abstract submissions, contact abs-help@aps.org or (301) 209-3290.

Poster Sessions

Poster sessions will be available at this meeting, if the author prefers this to an oral presentation. To have your paper placed in a poster session, select 'poster' under 'select an appropriate type for your abstract' on the Abstract Submission Site. One-half of an 8-foot wide by 4-foot high poster board (approximately 4' x 4' or 1.2 m x 1.2 m) and pushpins will be provided. For ease of set-up, entries should not be mounted on foam core.
