Please note:

  • The word count limit for abstracts is 250 words - any submissions over this word count limit will not be accepted.
  • This event will be recorded and made available to members for 30 days after the meeting.

As this is only a half day event, presentation spots are very limited, and there is no opportunity for poster presentations.

We look forward to welcoming you to this online meeting.
