Special Interest Subgroups

Member-Organized Special Interest Subgroups take a deep dive into specialty subjects under the seven scientific meeting tracks. Sessions are either 90 minutes or 150 minutes and all talks are selected from submitted abstracts.

Give a Talk in a Subgroup Session

Abstract submission is required for all talks in a Subgroup session. Subgroup talks vary in length as determined by the organizer(s). All speakers will present live at the meeting in December and a live Q&A may follow each talk, as determined by the organizer(s). An abstract fee is required.

Subgroup speakers are also required to register for the meeting. This fee is separate from the abstract fee.

Abstract Submission Deadline: August 1 at 9pm EDT
