Abstracts

All registration categories are eligible to submit an abstract to be included in the program and considered for a short talk. The deadline to submit an abstract to be considered for a short talk is May 1, 2024. (Award applicants should NOT submit a separate abstract, we will use the abstract you submit in your application and if not chosen for a short talk will be considered for a poster.) The deadline to submit an abstract to be included in the program is July 2, 2024. The abstracts must be submitted through the registration process. Please use this template for your abstract. Please note: Abstract submissions via email will not be accepted.

Posters

All attendees are eligible to present a poster during the poster session. However, space is limited and we might not be able to accommodate everyone who wants to present. In that situation we will prioritize students, postdocs and early career faculty. You will be able to indicate you would like to present a poster when you register. Again, the deadline to indicate you want to present a poster is July 2, 2024.

Awards

All award applications are due by May 1, 2024 and must be submitted through the registration process. You will be notified by the end May 2024 if you have been selected to receive an award. If you are not selected for an award you will be invited to re-register, which would require payment of the registration fee. All required documents must be submitted at the same time. Once applications are submitted, they cannot be revised or edited. Please note: Award checks will only be dispersed at the conclusion of the conference
