The meeting will consist of invited talks and contributed poster sessions. Both require an abstract be submitted, noting that the presenting author must be registered to attend the conference.

Abstracts will be accepted until July 8, 2019.

Abstract Preparation

All abstracts must download and use the pre-formatted template.  Simply replace the bracketed text with your text. Do not alter font size or type.

When done, save the file as YourName-abstract.doc or .docx. Submit the abstract electronically using our Qualtrics form. Abstracts submitted by email cannot be accepted.

Poster Specifications

Posters must not exceed 42” wide and 48” high (107 x 120 cm). Posters will be displayed directly beside each other, so there is no room for horizontal sides to overflow. Posters will be displayed for the entire conference. Presenting authors will be expected to be available at their posters during scheduled display times when presenting authors will have the opportunity to engage attendees and answer questions. Posters presented by graduate students will participate in a poster competition.
