These late submissions cause problems for the presenter, the Program Committee and the session chairs and in many cases, the oral slots in solicited sessions are already full. This year we would like to encourage you to submit your abstract early and before the DEADLINE OF MARCH 21 - which will get you into the process and give your submission a better chance of being accepted for your desired presentation. We will then accept replacement abstracts until July 31, 2016. You can send a revised abstract by email attachment and we will then replace the old one with the emailed version which will go into the Abstract Book USB.
