Review the list of topics below to see which category fits best.  Oral presentations will be selected from the submitted abstracts.  Abstracts not selected for oral presentations, will be programmed as poster presentations. You can submit more than one abstract. Submit at . Since AAA's annual meeting is part of the Experimental Biology (EB) meeting, all abstracts, registrations and hotel reservations are submitted through EB.   The maximum size for your abstract is 1720 characters (not including spaces). This includes the authors, affiliations, title and abstract body.  When submitting your abstract, it is important to select "Anatomy – American Association of Anatomists” as your sponsoring society.
