Outstanding Abstract Achievement Presentation Awards
and Poster Presentation Awards
Outstanding Abstract Achievement Presentation Awards will be awarded to Junior Investigators and Trainees whose abstracts are selected through a blinded review process. The top seven abstracts will be selected for oral presentation at the conference.
Two of the seven trainee awards will specifically be allotted to support participation of women, minorities and/or those with disability. These oral presentation awards will cover the conference registration fee.
In addition to the oral presentation awards, competitively selected research posters will be judged during the conference in two Thematic Poster Presentation Sessions. Awards will be given to the top poster presentation in each session.
All abstracts must be submitted by April 16, 2023 via an online abstract submission form.
For more details about submitting an abstract, including research categories, see the Awards and Abstracts page.
