If you wish to be considered for a short (15 min) talk, submit a one-paragraph abstract (250 words maximum) through the registration site and provide a tentative title in the appropriate box (the title can be changed later if necessary). The deadline for submitting an abstract is Feb 14, 2016. If your abstract is not selected for an oral presentation, we will automatically schedule you for a poster presentation. If your abstract is not chosen for oral presentation, it will automatically be considered for a poster presentation.
If you wish to present a poster only, please enter the tentative title through the registration site. The deadline for submission of a poster title is Feb 14, 2016. We will try to accommodate all posters. If necessary, the title of your poster can be changed prior to the symposium.
We highly encourage students and postdocs to submit abstracts to be considered for a speaker slot. This is a great opportunity to present your work to a knowledgeable but friendly audience. We also highly encourage you to present a poster.
