The organizing committee will select additional speakers based on abstracts submitted. First, ten (10) trainees (pre or post-doctoral fellows) will give data blitzes (5 min) summarizing key findings in their upcoming poster. Second, seven (7) speaking slots are reserved faculty who submit abstracts. If funds allow, we will provide these individuals with modest support to attend the meeting.
After the poster session, the organizing committee will select up to ten (10) trainees for travel awards of $500 each. These awards will be announced on the last day of the meeting; awardees will be given a certificate. Organizers expect the available rooms to be completely booked so attendees are encouraged to register early.
