NEW THIS YEAR -In an effort toward conservation and due to the increased use of smart phones and tablets, registrants will be required to select if they want to receive a Program Book OR a Program and Abstract Book when they register.


Option 1 - Program Book will include the Schedule of Events, Plenary, Concurrent and Poster Session listings, Exhibit Information, Maps of the area, Company sponsored ads, Speaker and Gene Index to the abstracts. The text of the abstracts will NOT be included. The book will be about 100 pages (dependent on the number of abstract submissions). The text of the abstracts will be available on the website and through the Abstract Search and Program Planner.


Option 2 - Program and Abstract Book will contain the same information in the Program Book AND the text of the abstracts. The book will be about 300 pages (dependent on the number of abstract submissions). Upon your selection, you will be committing to receiving that type of book when you arrive at the conference. Substitutions may not be made.
