*If you submit by the August 1 deadline, you can choose one of four presentation preferences:

    • Minisymposium Talk: Your abstract will only be considered for a Minisymposium Talk or Microsymposium Talk. If your abstract is not selected for a talk, we will attempt to contact you about the option of presenting a poster. Selecting Talk only does not increase your chances of being selected for a talk.
    • Minisymposium Talk OR Poster: Your abstract will be considered for a Minisymposium Talk, Microsymposium Talk, or a poster. If you are selected for a talk, you will not present a poster.
    • Minisymposium Talk AND Poster: Your abstract will be considered for a Minisymposium Talk, Microsymposium Talk, and a poster. If your abstract is selected for a talk, you will present a poster.
    • Poster Only Consideration: Your abstract will be considered for a poster presentation only. It will not be reviewed for a talk.

All abstracts submitted are accepted unless they do not meet the minimum submission standards as outlined in the guidelines. Submitting your abstract as talk only will not increase your chances of being selected for a talk. 

Abstract submission is separate from meeting registration. Please register for the meeting at the conclusion of your abstract submission.
