Developing topic submissions open on April 18, 2016. To receive the latest developing topic submission information, sign up for AAIC emails.
Developing Topic submissions are designed to bring the latest research findings in the field to AAIC attendees. Specifically, they are abstracts in which the research findings are not available by the general abstract submission deadline in February.
Submissions are open April 18 – May 2, 2016.
Note: AAIC 2016 Developing Topic abstracts will be considered for poster presentation only unless the research is considered to be late-breaking.
