Please be sure to review the list of minisymposia available for the conference and specify your preferred minisymposium when submitting your abstract.  If you are unsure of which minisymposium to choose, please submit to MS 100 General Submissions and the conference chairs will determine a suitable minisymposium for your abstract. 

Participants may be an author of multiple abstracts, but each abstract will require its own registration to be made by one of the authors.

  • Abstracts are to be submitted as text only with a limit of 400 words. Your abstract must contain a summary of your presentation as well as describe the principal contributions to the field. Up to three references may be included in the abstract and will be counted toward the 400 words.
  • No figures or equations are allowed. When entering the title, use the 'title' case (capitalize only the first letter of each significant word). Do not enter the title in all caps or capitalize the letter of the first word only.
