Call for Presentations

Paper abstracts must be received by close of business, October 16, 2017

Those interested in presenting a technical paper presentation are asked to submit an abstract of 250 words or less. Indicate on the abstract whether the proposal is for a paper or poster presentation.

A total of 20 minutes will be allotted to each technical paper presentation, including questions. Data projectors and screens will be provided; no overheads. Authors of the selected papers will be notified by November 15, 2017.

Please include the presentation title, author name(s), affiliation, address, phone number, e-mail and abstract following the example template below as a guide.

In a cover letter or e-mail, indicate if the abstract is being submitted as a paper (to be presented during a technical session) or a poster.
