On Demand

A number of high-quality abstracts are chosen from those submitted to the Society for primary authors to give 20-minute oral presentations of their research. Sessions will be structured around basic topic areas and will feature 45 speakers.


E-posters will be available throughout the duration of the conference, with presenters provided the opportunity to upload their poster in the virtual conference platform with a 4-5 minute audio recording highlighting their work.
