Abstracts & e-Posters

Want to share your cutting-edge research findings with your colleagues? Consider submitting an abstract for a short talk or presenting an e-poster.

Abstracts for Short Talks

Showcase your original research, innovative project, or novel program in a short talk presentation, a 15-minute concise presentation.
If you choose to present a short talk, simply notify us by selecting “I would like to give a short talk” when you register for the conference. Conference organizers review and select the abstracts. If your abstract is selected, you will receive email notification approximately three weeks before the conference. 

Please note that conference organizers reserve the right to decline any submitted abstract that lacks scientific content or merit, or merely announces the availability of a resource or service. It is inappropriate to submit an abstract with an obvious commercial intent.

Abstracts for e-Posters

Similar to the short talks, your e-poster presentation is another interactive way to engage with your peers and present your research. If you submit an abstract, you are automatically eligible to present an e-poster. 

One week prior to the conference, submitters will receive an email with login information for the e-Poster Hall. Submitters will be able to upload their poster and content prior to the go-live date. Content can include pdfs and video clips.
