Step 1 - Record your personal details to create your own ‘dashboard’.

If you have already created an ASN dashboard for a previous event, select 'Returning delegates' and use your email address and password to login to your ‘dashboard’.

If you have not used the ASN online system before please select 'Register as a new delegate'. You will be asked to create a profile including email, password and organisation.

Please contact Jordyn at ASN Events (email) if you have need assistance with the online system or need your password reset.

Step 2 – Insert your abstract

From your dashboard, select 'new' abstract. You will then be taken through the submission process.


  •  System requirements:

    INTERNET EXPLORER (ver 5.5 or newer)
    NETSCAPE (ver 7.4 or newer) or
    MOZILLA (ver 1.3 or newer)

    The screen will tell you if it detects you are using the wrong software and you would be better to change to a computer with one of the above installed.

  • Have you got your abstract open and running on your own computer? – you need to be able to cut and paste it onto the web. (Note that keypad short cuts do not work with Mozilla, you need to use the menu, edit, paste command to paste in text to your submission).

  • Is your abstract text less than 300 words? – it will not allow you to paste larger submissions. The word count does NOT include your title, authoring or cited references.

Step 3 - Once your submission is complete you will receive a confirmation email.

You can return to your dashboard at any time to view and edit your submission up until reviewing begins (see instruction in the next tab).

You are ready to begin


The Australasian Proteomics Society is committed to the professional development of its student members. As such, up to six higher degree students will be selected to make short oral presentations of their research to the Symposium. Only currently enrolled students are eligible to receive this opportunity. Selection of speakers will be made from poster abstracts, with criteria including: societal/scientific need for understanding in particular research area, tightness of aim and hypothesis, construction of experimental design, relation of results to original hypothesis, and contextualisation of results within the literature. 


You will receive a confirmation email with your Abstract Submission Reference Number. If you do not receive this confirmation email, please contact Jordyn at ASN Events (email).
You can view or edit your abstract by returning to your dashboard (see instructions in the next tab). 


Changes can be made to your abstract until the scoring process begins. To make any changes to your submitted abstract, simply follow these steps:

  • Return to the conference dashboard. Should you do not remember your password, please contact Jordyn at ASN Events (email) and she will reset it for you.

  • Click the top menu “Abstract”, then the “View submission” button.

  • Now click the “Preview/Edit abstract” button and make the necessary changes to your abstract by selecting the appropriate top menu ("Title" or "Authors" or "Content").

  • Once you have done your amendments, simply press the "Save" button to confirm.

If you need assistance with the online system or have any further queries, please contact Jordyn at ASN Events (email). 


Abstracts for all Conference presentations will be published as the Proceedings of the Conference. The Program Committee will select some presentations for the oral program from the submitted abstracts and will notify those authors. Other submissions will be offered a poster presentation.


Notification of programming decisions will come from the secretariat shortly after the expiry of deadlines and the working program will be posted to the web site. It will also appear on your profile. The notification will include specific presentation instructions but in the interim, those preparing posters should note the maximum size allowed is 100cm wide by 120cm high. Velcro will be available to fix the poster to the boards. Computer data projection is the preferred presentation method for orals.
