Abstracts will be presented in two ways:                                  

Oral Presentations:

Virtual oral presentations will feature outstanding research representing the abstract topical areas. Oral sessions will be programmed to include abstracts organized around a common theme. Virtual oral presentations will include the abstract text and the opportunity for presenting authors to discuss their work with attendees through questions and answers. Presenting authors will deliver oral presentations using Power Point slides and audio recorded to accompany each slide.

Poster Presentations:

Virtual poster presentations throughout the meeting. Poster presentations offer attendees the ideal opportunity to present their own research. Virtual poster presentations will include the abstract text and the opportunity for presenting authors to discuss their work with attendees through online questions and answers. ePosters (PDF) can be uploaded and audio recorded to enhance each poster presentation.

Presenting authors can opt to have their abstract considered for oral presentation, however, selection is not guaranteed. Accepted abstracts not selected for oral presentation will be programmed as virtual poster presentations.
