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.


During each day of these three-day sessions, posters will be on display from 9:00 am - 6:45 pm and can be viewed at any time during this period. Each day, two and half hours of formal presentation time (4:15 pm - 6:45 pm) is scheduled for authors to be available to discuss their work with other attendees. Poster boards for display of abstracts will be 4 feet (122 cm) high x 8 feet (244 cm) wide for greater display area (click here for an example). Posters may be set up from 7:00 am - 9:00 am on the presenter's scheduled presentation day.
