Notification of Programming for Submissions

The submitting author will be notified by email in April to let them know if their abstract has been accepted for presentation during the virtual meeting. Abstracts may be accepted for either platform presentation or poster presentation. Authors of abstracts assigned to platform sessions will each have 15 minutes to present their research in a live virtual session. Authors of abstracts assigned to present posters will be assigned to poster sessions during which time they will virtually attend their posters and discuss their research with attendees via text or video chat.
