Policy on Abstract Submission
Participants may submit up to two abstracts through our abstract submission page.
Submissions will be reviewed by the Technical Co-Chairs Committee and participants will be informed of the outcome of their submission in due course of time. In general, we encourage one registrant to give one oral presentation rather than two (if accepted).
In some cases, one oral and one poster may be approved for presentation by a participant, with approval from the Technical Committee.
Poster Competition Policy
While all poster presenters are welcome to give their presentation, only those presentations given by students will be eligible for prizes in the poster competition.
Student posters that are presented on their behalf by a non-student colleague or advisor will not be considered eligible for prizes.
