Abstracts are submitted electronically using the form found on the Submit an Abstract page. Be sure to complete all of the form fields and to designate a Working Group that is most relevant to the abstract content. Descriptions of the themes/topics of the Working Groups can be found on the Sessions and Working Groups page.

Abstracts will be reviewed for relevance to the scope of the conference and appropriateness of the requested Working Group assignment. Abstracts will be reviewed only when the attendee has successfully registered for the conference. Working Group Co-Facilitators will be provided with copies of approved abstracts for consideration as they develop the discussion framework for their sessions. Approved submissions will be reprinted electronically and in hardcopy formats in the “Conference Proceedings.” Please do not submit proprietary information. Abstract submission is encouraged where appropriate, but not required for conference attendees. Whether a submitted abstract is accepted or not has no impact on the submitter’s registration status.
