    Annual Meeting 2016

    Abstract submissions are sought for individual research papers on topics related to the conference theme or other topical areas of interest.  In addition to individual research papers we encourage the submission of posters that describe a project, research results, program summaries, or lessons learned as a visual display on poster board.  We also encourage the submission of organized paper sessions and panel sessions. These sessions include 3 – 5 participants and are submitted as a complete session. For more specific details see Types of Submissions

We offer this description as a general guideline and understand some papers may include other information.
