Abstract Submission Resources
Abstract Submission Tips
- Do not wait until the last day to submit an abstract. There is usually very high traffic on the website and you want to avoid the risk of any technical difficulties.
- Do not use the “back” button during the submission process.
- Be certain to click “Submit” at the end of the process for a confirmation of receipt. If you do not get confirmation of receipt, DIA did not receive your abstract.
- Note that DIA does not allow more than one participant from the same company to present within the same program offering (this includes Session Chairs and speakers). Should you believe that having more than one participant from the same company is crucial to your session’s success, requests for session participants, from the same company, may be submitted to DIA, at AnnualMeetingProgram@DIAglobal.org, for consideration (applicable for accepted abstracts only). Please note: limiting the number of speakers from the same company is a Continuing Education best practice and mitigates perceived bias from within the audience.
- Review our submission site process document before logging in.
- Our Track Chairs have highlighted priority topics within their educational tracks to provide direction on content they would like to receive via the Call for Abstracts. You may submit abstracts addressing priority topics and/or topics relevant to the DIA 2023 track descriptions. Both priority topics and track-specific topics will be reviewed and considered by the Annual Meeting Program Committee (AMPC).
What is a Priority Topic?
- The AMPC has identified several priority topics for each track they believe to be of significant value to the DIA 2023 program.
What is a Track-Specific Topic?
- Track-specific topics are topics that support the overall purpose for the track. For full descriptions of the DIA 2023 tracks click here.
- DIA is committed to including the voice of the patient at DIA 2023. DIA’s Patient Partner initiative continues to ensure that the perspectives of patient communities are part of the discourse in all of our content formats. We encourage patients and patient representatives to submit abstract proposals, not only into the Patient Engagement track, but to all relevant tracks. The AMPC will be looking for these during the abstract selection process.

DIA encourages abstracts that showcase future trends; offer unique ideas; share interesting case studies; foster diversity, equity, and inclusion; and accelerate innovation. DIA is excited to reconvene our members as we host the DIA 2023 Global Annual Meeting in Boston with the theme of ILLUMINATE. The goal of the DIA 2023 Global Annual Meeting is to highlight different voices, recognizing expertise across the globe, bring together experts to solve problems, and reimagine current processes to enhance health and well-being. We welcome abstracts that think broadly and boldly about the future of healthcare, as well as those that shine a light on the tactical and practical skills necessary for effective healthcare product development. Think about focusing your abstract around the following questions and themes:
- How will business practices evolve to serve future generations of patients and ensure access, affordability, and success?
- How can we equip and empower leaders to make prudent, strategic decisions to shape the next decade and beyond?
- How are collaborations crossing organizations, decades, languages, and boundaries to have true global impact? We will be evaluating abstracts for content best suited to the needs of DIA members. To assist us in evaluating your abstract, please —
- Include as much detail as possible about the content you plan to offer in your description. Be clear about your topic, format, and how you plan to make your session interactive.
- Include 2-3 learning objectives for your presentation. When writing learning objectives, focus on the participant and the specific knowledge, skills and abilities that can be achieved from your presentation. Learning objectives should complete the sentence, “After completing this session, attendees will be able to...”
- Provide audience takeaways. Tell us what an audience of professionals in the life sciences community will gain by participating in your session.
- Describe how your presentation will incorporate DIA’s principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
