Call for submissions

Due to the timeline we will not ask for open session submissions. Rather, we encourage participants to submit closed sessions including 4-5 presentations.

Four submission formats and ten presentation tracks will be used to organize the session and abstract submissions. When submitting sessions or abstracts, please select one presentation format and up to three tracks that you identify as most relevant and appropriate for your session or abstract.

Submit Abstract or Session
