A form will be provided for abstract submission, when you click the submit button below, we encourage you to cut and paste.

Abstract paragraphs should not exceed 300 words; title, author list, and funding citations are excluded from word count.

Presentation Information:

Due to safety concerns of the close proximity needed for a good poster session we will not host an in-person poster session. This will be replaced by 5 minute (3 minute presentation, 2 minute Q&A) “data blitz” style presentations selected from our abstract submissions. Please make sure to indicate you would like your abstract considered for data blitz oral presentation. We will also select a few abstracts for full 20 minute (15 minute presentation; 5 minute Q&A) session presentations, both options are listed on your abstract form, please select one or both as per your preferences. Both Data Blitz and Full Oral presentations can be from either online or in person participants.

We will have 2 data blitz sessions, Tuesday June 29th and Wednesday, June 30th.

All accepted abstracts (those selected for oral presentation, not selected for oral presentation, and all submitted before May 28th with a paid registration) will be included in our abstract book which will be distributed to all paid attendees (online or in person) with the email address of the submitting author so attendees can connect on their own.

Deadline Information:

All abstracts to be distributed in our abstract book must be submitted by May 28th.
