Abstract and Special Interest Groups (SIG) submission will be open Monday, October 16 - December 1, 2017
The Annual Meeting Program Committee (AMPC) seeks high-quality abstracts describing original, unpublished research results that contain a clear statement of hypothesis, an explanation of methods, a report of data that unequivocally test the hypothesis, and a brief discussion of the implications.

The abstract must be work that has not been submitted for publication or preprint before the abstract submission deadline. After the abstract submission deadline of December 1, 2017, an author is at liberty to submit their abstract to a journal or a preprint for publication consideration.
