Due to the overwhelming number of symposium proposals received, the Program Committee needs additional time to work through them. For this reason the deadline for poster and contributed paper abstracts is being extended from February 11 to February 25. The website and submission software will reflect the changed deadline as soon as possible.
Based on the interest so far, this meeting will be considerably larger than the Anchorage or San Francisco meetings. Even with an expanded number of concurrent sessions, the Program Committee expects space for contributed oral papers to be limited. Therefore we encourage you to submit abstracts for posters rather than contributed papers. The poster space available is huge, with excellent traffic flow, so we expect that you will be very pleased with your experience.
