Even though more than 1,000 abstracts were submitted before the deadline April 17, 11:59pm Eastern Time, for some of you there were unforeseen technical difficulties.

“Mirasmart apologizes for the technical issues that some experienced when trying to access the payment step during the submission process. Our SSL certificate prevented certain browsers from being able to confirm that the certificate was indeed authentic, which is what caused the warning to the end user. The payment forms were still transmitted over a secure connection during this time. After working with our technical team throughout the day, yesterday, the issue has been resolved.”

Your staff at ACSP would like to assure you that if you experienced technical difficulties and contacted ACSP or Mirasmart before the deadline, we will work with you to ensure a successful submission. ACSP and Mirasmart staff are working diligently to return your calls and emails.

We have extended the deadline for those who fall into this category. The abstract submission site is open until Thursday, 4/20 at 11:59pm Eastern Time.
