Instructions for Abstract Submission
Contributed presentations will all be in the form of posters.
The deadline for submission of poster abstracts is
Friday, June 17. It is likely that all posters will be
accepted, but in case an unexpectedly large number of posters
are submitted, acceptances will be on a first-come first-served
We can accommodate most poster sizes. The posters are going to be attached
to boards by thumb tacks that will be provided at the poster presentation site.
Oral presentations will be by invitation only. Invited speakers
will be contacted and asked to provide an abstract by Friday, June 17 at
The suggested format of abstracts for contributed poster and invited
oral presentations is the same. If possible, please download the
and modify for
your use. Alternatively, please download the
formatted sample abstract
some attempt to match its style. Abstracts should be prepared for
printing on 8.5x11 paper. If possible, please convert your
abstract to PDF and email the PDF as an attachment, but LaTeX and
attachments are also acceptable.
Abstracts should be emailed to
before the June 17 deadline. (Please make sure that your email cannot
be mistaken for an email virus -- for example, the message body
should not be empty.)
