Abstract Submission Instructions

COVID-19 Alert:
AMTA will keep a keen eye on the evolving situation with the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and follow guidance from the CDC on group gatherings. We remain hopeful that by November, the situation will permit us to join together in Newport. However, we are prepared to implement new procedures as needed to allow us to enjoy the technical presentations and exhibits for which AMTA is known. Please be assured that we will keep AMTA members informed about any new developments as they arise.
