We invite and encourage the submission of abstracts from interested scientists. A small number of abstracts will be considered for an oral presentation, the remaining will be presented as posters. You must be registered for the meeting in order for your abstract to be considered.


Abstract title, author list, affiliations and content must fit in one double spaced A4 page with 12-point Arial font. The title should be bolded. Title, author list, affiliations should be listed immediately below the title, separated by one empty line. An additional empty line should separate affiliations and abstract content. Abstracts should be submitted in a single page Microsoft Word document, which can be uploaded below. The abstract submission deadline is May 15, 2012.

The abstract narrative must be clear, concise, and copy edited in advance of submission. With the exception of possible formatting for uniformity in print, no changes will be made to your submitted material.


If you are using project data in your analysis, we recommend you use the March 2012 Phase I Dataset whenever possible.
