If you would like to submit an abstract for consideration, please use the following guidelines:


At abstract submission, trainees should indicate if they want to be considered for an oral presentation.  They should also indicate what level they are at in their training.

We are going to ask all poster presenters to record a five-minute presentation of their poster – these will all be made available during the meeting but those selected to present and compete will have five minute formal times for responding to questions after we show their recordings. We will make the abstracts available to registrants prior to the meeting so that people can choose to “visit” virtually those posters they are interested in seeing that may not be selected for group presentation.
