Abstract and Poster Sessions


Abstract submitters (one person per abstract) are invited to present orally in a Workshop organized by topic. Ten or eleven concurrent small group workshops precede the poster sessions. Workshops are chaired by investigators with expertise in the topic area. Each workshop generally contains 10 short talks allowing ample time for data presentation and discussion. The final workshop topics depends upon abstract submissions and authors cannot be guaranteed of their first choice. Each presenter will be contacted by a Workshop Chair for specific details regarding her/his oral presentation. The poster session follows immediately after the workshops and allows for an in depth, discussion of the data. 

The Workshop format will utilize Powerpoint presentations. Presenters will be contacted by their assigned workshop chairs prior to the meeting with instructions for submission of their presentations. Please see Workshop Tips for helpful tips.
