Abstract Submission & Logistics:

  • Deadline - Friday 18th February 2022 (end of day, your local time)
  • Decisions on abstracts will be announced by end of March.
  • Note, all attendees at the conference are expected to give a science presentation.
  • Note, it is possible that we will receive more submissions than can be accepted, given the size of the venue. Indeed, from past experience we anticipate a high over subscription rate, both for contributed talk requests and for attendance in general, i.e., with talk or poster.
  • Registration and logistics information, including hotel room blocks, for attendees will be sent out by mid April.

Abstract submission is n​ow closed.
