  • Abstract in 1,200 characters or fewer, including spaces (Do not include information in your abstract that will not be in your presentation.)

The information you enter will be published on the website and on the agenda. Do not include bullet points or numbering. Avoid using words in all capital letters. Submissions must be in English.
