FORMATTING ABSTRACTS
Abstracts and revisions to previously submitted abstracts will only be accepted by MARC until January 13,
2012. Authors are advised to download the abstract template for use while constructing abstracts. This template is
available online at www.regonline.com/2012marc (under the Abstracts tab.)

1. Abstracts should include title, authors, institution, body text, an optional figure, and references.

2. All content should fit completely within one 8.5” wide x 11” tall paper with 1 inch margins on all four sides.

3. Title should reflect the content of the abstract. The title should be centered, boldfaced, and in ALL CAPITAL letters.

4. Authors should be listed by first name, middle initial, full last name, and professional degrees. Authors should be
   centered on the line below the title. The presenting/corresponding author should be underlined. The presenting author
   should be the first author, but this is not absolutely required.

5. The faculty mentor should be listed in parenthesis after the presenting author's name.

6. The institution name should be listed on the line below authors, and should be followed by city and state.

7. All content should be formatted in 10-point or 12-point Times New Roman left margin justified. Body text should be
   formatted at 1.5 line spacing.

8. A single figure, if included, must fit within the 1 inch margins and must be embedded in the Document. (That is, it
   must not be included as a separate file.)

9. References should number three or fewer. They should be formatted as follows:
   Doe, J. et al. (2004) Anesthesiology 99: 123-134.

10. Files   should be saved as a Microsoft Office Word doc or docx file.

IMPORTANT
The file name should be the full name of the corresponding author, category, and Case or Study and month and day
of the version noted.
                                                      Examples:

                                           Last_First_Category_Case_Month_Day.doc
                                                               or
                                           Last_First_Category_Study_Month_Day.doc

FORMATTING OF POWERPOINT PRESENTATIONS
Submit your slides to your University’s MARC 2012 contact person by February 16, 2012.

1. Presentations must be formatted as Microsoft PowerPoint .ppt or pptx.

2. Presentations must consist of a title slide plus a maximum of 6 data slides. You will have 6 minutes to present.

3. Presentations may be up to 5 MB in size. Files larger than this will be excluded. No laptop audio will be available. Video
   clips are not permitted.

4. Authors are strongly advised to preview their presentations using a LCD projector and large screen before submitting
   them. Thin lines, and light lines or text on dark backgrounds, may be much more difficult to read/view when projected
   on a large screen as opposed to viewing on your computer monitor.

IMPORTANT
The file name should be the full name of the corresponding author, category, and Case or Study and month and day
of the version noted.
                                                      Examples:

                                   Abstract, PowerPoint and Poster Formatting Instructions for Authors


FORMATTING OF POSTERS (Poster presenters must be pre-established by February 16, 2012)
Poster presenters should bring posters to the 2012 MARC for display.

1. Research abstracts (clinical, animal, or bench) must be submitted as a poster. These are the only
   abstracts that may be submitted as a poster.

2. The poster tack board provided will have a surface area of 4’ tall x 8’ wide.

3. Posters and all elements must fit inside this area.

4. Poster content must include: abstract

5. Abstract title, authors, institution name, institution city and state, graphics and text that support the abstract, and
   references.

6. An 8.5” wide x 11” tall copy of your abstract paper will be posted in the upper left-hand corner of the poster board by
   MARC organizers.

7. Posters will be read from a distance of three feet or more. Charts, drawings, and illustrations should be similar to
   those that would otherwise be used in making slides, but preferably simpler and more heavily drawn; they should not
   be elaborate. Simple use of color can be added for emphasis. Do not mount posters on heavy board as it may be
   difficult to keep them in position on the tack board. Hand-made material should use appropriately heavy lettering that
   is at least 3/8" (1 cm) high. Shade block letters where possible. Text should be printed in a font large enough to be
   read comfortably from a distance of four to five feet. It may also be useful to bring a pad of paper and felt marking
   pens. Professionally printed posters may be laminated; however, this is not required.

8. Poster presenters schedules:

    If you present Saturday before lunch:
    Display your poster materials Friday, March 16 between 3:00 pm and 9:00 pm or Saturday, March 17 between 7:00
    am and 8:00 am.

    If you present Saturday after lunch:
    Display your poster materials on Saturday during the lunch break

    Poster presenters should not leave any items unattended at their poster board, including poster tubes and other
    personal items. MARC is not responsible for any of these items left in the poster session area. MARC will
    provide pushpins only. If you want use Velcro or tape, please bring it with you.

9. Abstracts scheduled for presentation in poster sessions will be grouped by topic and tack board number, and will
   appear in the MARC 2012 syllabus with the abstract category, title, author and author’s institution information. The
   listing will also specify the poster presentation time slot and the poster presentation room. A label for the tack board
   header rail will be provided by MARC. This label will correspond with the poster code in the syllabus.

10. Poster presenters are expected to be in their specified tack board at the time listed in the syllabus. Poster presenters
    may view other posters during their session, however, must be stationed at their poster and prepared to present to
    the judges and audience.

11. If you wish to keep your poster, it must be removed before the next session begins, and at the latest, by 6:00 pm on
    Saturday, March 17. Posters that are not removed and any posters left hanging on the poster boards will be
    discarded.
