Late breaking abstracts are presented as posters. Each poster will be displayed on a 4 ft. x 8 ft. display board. Abstracts will be reviewed and scored by the Symposium Planning Committee members or their representatives. Late breaking abstracts that are accepted by the Abstract Review Committee will be distributed on-site to attendees, but will not appear in the Program and Abstracts book for the meeting.
At the discretion of the Planning Committee, abstracts may be presented orally if they have not been accepted for publication or presented orally at another scientific meeting prior to the abstract submission deadline. Prior publication as an abstract, presentation orally or as a poster, or presentation at a regional meeting does not preclude its submission for poster presentation.
