Abstract submission is now closed.

Specifically, they are abstracts in which the research findings were not available by the general abstract submission deadline in February. The deadline to submit a Developing Topic abstract is April 30.
Note: Developing Topics abstracts will be considered for poster presentation only unless the research is considered to be late-breaking. The majority of Developing Topics presentations will be scheduled on Wednesday, July 25, 2018.
