We are excited to have room in the schedule for multiple talks (6-15 minutes in length) selected from among the top-rated abstracts submitted! While most abstracts will be selected for poster presentations, if you are interested in being considered for a talk, you can indicate this on the abstract submission page. We encourage trainees and faculty alike to submit abstracts and look forward to adding additional speakers and poster presenters to the schedule.
