Call for contributed lectures and posters (closed)

Contributed presentations in lecture or poster format are invited in all areas consistent with the conference themes. A lecture format is generally a 15-minute oral presentation with an additional 5 minutes for discussion. Talk lengths will be determined by the co-chairs at the close of submissions. A poster format involves the use of non-electronic visual aids for mounting on an A0 poster board.

Each contributor, either for a lecture or a poster, must submit a title and a brief abstract (not to exceed 200 words). A poster may be presented in addition to a talk, provided the talk and the poster are on different results.

The deadline to submit lectures and posters will be December 1st, 2019. Submitters will be contacted regarding the acceptance of their proposal shortly thereafter.
