Abstracts on Flash Drive
The printed Abstract Book was discontinued in 2012. Abstracts will instead be available on flash drive. The flash drive will include the full text of all annual meeting abstracts as well as the full annual meeting program (accurate as of the mid-October print date) and allow users to search for and mark presentations of interest.
The flash drive will be mailed with meeting badges in mid-November to those who register during early-bird and advance registration. Attendees who register after the advance registration deadline may pick up their flash drive on site. Extra copies of the abstracts on flash drive may be ordered on site for $70 per copy for members and $100 per copy for non-members. (ASH will not be responsible for shipping flash drives purchased on site.)
Members and Blood subscribers who are NOT attending the annual meeting will receive the abstracts on a flash drive in the mail in December. The final program will be available online in early November, and attendees are encouraged to use the online program planner and the ASH Annual Meeting mobile application.
Hematology 2013, the ASH Education Program, provides an updated and comprehensive review of each of the topics covered in the annual meeting education sessions. The manuscripts are written by the Education Program speakers and undergo peer review. A chapter on the Ham-Wasserman Lecture, as well as evidencebased mini-reviews related to the topics covered in this year's Education Program, will also be included. Hematology 2013 will be distributed on site to registrants, and extra copies may be purchased for $80 per copy for members and $130 per copy for non-members. (ASH will not be responsible for shipping books purchased on site.) ASH members not attending the meeting will be mailed a copy of Hematology 2013 in January 2014.
The Program Book contains the master schedule and complete annual meeting program (as of the mid-October print date), including detailed information for the general and special-interest sessions, trainee activities, Education and Scientific Programs, oral and poster sessions, and ticketed events. A listing of exhibitors and Friday Satellite Symposia is also included.
Please note that the abstracts on flash drive will also contain program information (as of the mid-October print date) for the meeting.
