The proposed symposium should include an organizer and up to 4 presenters, to cover 90 minutes (organizer + 3 presenters) or 120 minutes (organizer + 4 presenters). The structure of the symposium should include a brief thematic overview presentation by the organizer, individual presentations, and an optional discussion. The organizer can serve as the discussant, or another named discussant can be included.
Due to the hardships created for many researchers caused by recent weather events, the deadline for submitting symposium proposals has been extended to end of day (11:59 EDT) on Monday September 18, 2017
We will notify submitters of symposium acceptance by October 15, 2017; abstracts for each individual symposium presentation from accepted symposia will be required by November 1, 2017.
If a symposium proposal is not accepted, proposed participants are encouraged to submit a proposal for a single presentation.
