Finalising ANZCA 2017 abstract submission

Did you have trouble finalising your ANZCA 2017 abstract submission?

While the extended acceptance date has now passed for abstracts, we did receive a few enquiries of users experiencing difficulties while attempting to upload their contribution. We suspect it was a traffic issue, given the high level of contributions to this year’s event. But if you did experience issues, we will leave the EasyChair site open until the end of next week, Friday 24 March.

Please go to ANZCA 2017 EasyChair conference site to upload your abstract.

Hopefully this will provide enough of an opening to those authors that had last minute issues with the system to upload their abstract for this year’s conference.
