NEAPMS offers re-certification credits for conference attendees at our annual conference. To do so our presenters must provide complete information on the presentations and/or posters they plan to present in advance.

Note: The 2014 Abstract Submittal process is now closed.

Abstract Requirements

Presenter's must provide the following information in their abstract submission:

Presenter Information

  • Name, title, and professional affiliation
  • Address, telephone, fax, and email address
  • Biography

Paper Specifics

  • Paper should be about 250 words, explaining purpose, approach, results, and management implications, as appropriate.
  • Be specific enough to allow independent evaluation of the professional value of the presentation or poster. This will encourage conference attendance when we make the program abstracts available, and will help gain re-certification credit for attendees.
  • Presentations should be supported by reasonable data analysis and be of a quality that will stand up to the rigors required to gain recertifi- cation credits for attendees.
  • Paper should either be saved as a MicroSoft® Word® document, using Times New Roman, 12pt font or pasted into the body of the submission email.

Submission Process

The submission deadline is September 30, 2013.

Abstracts and biographies with the required information should be sent to NEAPMS Program Coordinator Marc Bellaud at or mailed to:
