Why submit an abstract at TAS?

  • Network with other scientists, including potential employers
  • Get feedback and helpful hints on your work
  • Practice your presentation skills
  • Contribute to a record-breaking 118th Annual Meeting of the Academy!

Happy New Year!  On Friday, March 6, the Academy will convene its Annual Meeting at the University of the Incarnate Word in historic San Antonio. You can submit your abstract under the "Meetings" menu option to the left. Click on "Meetings", then "Abstract Management".  You will need to create a new account for the abstract site, even if you submitted an abstract last year. After you submit your abstract, don't forget to register. 


TAS membership runs through the calendar year, so if you joined in 2014, you membership expired on December 31, 2014.  If you haven't renewed your membership from 2014, now is a perfect time to do so.  This will enable you to register for the conference at the early bird rates!  Please take a moment to log in to your membership account (use the "Member Login" link at the top of the menu) and check your membership status.  If you find your membership has expired, click here to renew today!  If you have any questions, contact us using the "Contact Us" menu link and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
