The program format for the 2003 meeting will include 5 major symposia and poster displays. The 5 major symposia are organized around topics (noted below) and will include several invited presentations (30 minutes each) plus 4 to 5 oral presentations (20 minutes each) to be decided from the submitted abstracts. Posters will be displayed for the entire meeting with specified times within the program designated for poster viewing. Authors should submit their abstracts in one of three categories: invited speaker, oral/poster presentation, or poster only. Those submitting abstracts for oral/poster presentations will automatically be considered for an oral presentation.


Abstracts should be submitted electronically to as Microsoft Word or PDF attachments. The deadline for submission is April 11, 2003. All submissions will be acknowledged electronically.
