Each presenter is allowed to give one oral paper and one poster. The only exception is when a person has been asked to participate in two symposia. In that case, the person can give two oral papers (and zero posters). Each person can be on multiple (>2) titles, but can only give one oral paper and one poster.
When you visit the site for the first time, please click on the link on the top line. You will be asked to register with the site. If this is your first abstract submission for the 2016 meeting, you must create a new account in the abstract submission system. After you register, you will receive an email with a set of abstract submission instructions attached. PLEASE NOTE: Abstracts will be entered directly into a box on the submission page. You do not need to use a template or upload a file. You can cut and paste directly from Word or copy any text into the box.
We now have the option of oral “lightning” talks. These are 5 minute talks, 10 slides maximum, no questions from the audience following the talk. Lightning talks provide a good forum for presenting preliminary research or for putting out a call for data, feedback, or collaboration.
You can edit your submission and information up to the end of abstract submission: 18 March 2016. There will be no deadline extensions.
*Please avoid the use of language or visual effects that would in any way offend your colleagues. Refrain from lewd or suggestive jokes, photographs, and offensive language.

*In order to present in New Orleans, all presenters, including symposia presenters, must register and pay for the meeting. Meeting registration is done through a separate online system accessed from the Registration Information page and requires a separate log in username and password. Your username and password are not necessarily the same for the two systems.
