Still accepting submissions

(added MAY 28th)
The original abstract submission deadline of May 9th has been effectively extended to allow for late submissions. We have the main volume of submissions in already, but we have flexibility in our schedule, so we can fit you in if you find that you are able to attend our symposium - we understand that sometimes new projects come along (great for lightning talks!), or your schedule changes. For this reason, the abstract submission website will stay open through the summer.

For all submissions, please fill in the online Abstract Submission Form.
