Either Poster or Podium

Also, list your (Submitting Author’s) preferred e-mail address, 2ndary email if you have one; and complete phone # including country code

Lastly, provide a 1 sentence summary, if you have a conflict of interest (COI).  COI is defined as: any financial or nonfinancial consideration or relationship relevant to your presentation content that compromises or has the potential to compromise professional judgment (if you have a COI, you are still eligible to present), but you should briefly mention it at the beginning of your talk/poster.  COI Examples:

    Being an employee of, or a paid consultant to, an organization whose product or service you discuss in your presentation.
    Patent holder related to findings in your presentation.
    Ownership interest (stocks, stock options, or other ownership interests) in a company who could benefit from your findings.

Each Abstract will be reviewed by members of our International Advisory Board, which serves as our Meeting Program Committee; and you will be notified of acceptance within a month of submission.  Although registration is required to submit your Abstract, if your plans change, you may request a Full Refund.  Accepted Abstracts will be posted on our Meeting Website and in our printed Program to be distributed in your Registration Packets on-site.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thanks, and see you in sunny Tampa!
