I would like to know more about abstract submission.

If you submit an abstract, you can attend the Symposium at no cost.

The abstract can be any scientifically/research relevant project work, and can include ongoing or unpublished work. Some presenters may be non-academic, giving an overview of their business unit or domain as it relates to clinical/computational.

All abstracts will be assumed to be for posters unless you select the option to be considered for a short talk as well. If you submit a poster abstract, you can consider it accepted. We will be in contact closer to the event to make sure you have all the logistical details for the poster session.

For those who would like to be considered for a short talk, we will be in contact to let you know if your talk application has been accepted and to give you more details.

If you’d like to learn more about creating a scientific poster, check out the video for our event Designing and Presenting Your Scientific Poster.
