  10. I am having an issue submitting my abstract, what should I do?
    Please be sure you have not gone over the word limit. Clear your cookies in your browser then try to resubmit it. Do not hit the back arrow in the abstracts portal—that will cause an error message to occur. If you continue to encounter an issue please send a screenshot of the error message to awh@academyofwomenshealth.org and be sure to include what type of browser you are using and the title of the abstract for our IT team to investigate the issue.
  11. I submitted an abstract and I want to register for the Congress but I want to wait until I find out my abstract has been accepted. If I don't receive notification until after the early bird registration expires how can I still get the early-bird registration rate? Can I get the member rate and the early-bird rate?
    Once you receive your email notification that your abstract is accepted please contact our Conference Services Manager Nilda Rivera who can assist you with your conference registration. She can be reached at nrivera@liebertpub.com or 914-740-2181.

    You may wish to become an AWH member (or renew) for 2014 to receive the deeply discounted member early-bird rate. Please note you must sign up for 2014 membership before the early-bird registration rate expires on December 5, 2013 to lock in your member early-bird rate. This offer is valid for abstract poster presenters. For questions about membership contact awh@academyofwomenshealth.org or call 914-740-2128.
