And more...

We encourage abstracts to contain new and unpublished materials. The abstracts must be submitted electronically by the abstract submission deadline to be considered for selection. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the meeting organizers. Status (fellow's talk/poster) of abstracts will be informed via email as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers. 

We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. A certain number of oral or poster presentations by graduate students and postdocs in this conference will be selected for fellowship (USD $100-$500) awards during the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you at Suzhou in 2023.
