and November 7, 2017. Proposals should consist of the title of the
special session and a preliminary list of speakers and draft titles for
individual talks. Special sessions may include 6, 12, or 18 presentations, each 20 minutes in length. Sessions can also include a 20-40 minute panel for
questions and answers or further discussion on the special session
topic. If a session proposal includes a number of speakers other than 6,
12, or 18, the additional slots may be filled by the conference organizers with
other appropriate abstracts. The sessions are in two-hour blocks separated by
meals and 30-minute networking breaks.

not be reimbursed by the conference. Organizers will be notified by
December 1 whether their session has been accepted. Once accepted, each
individual in the special session will be required to submit an abstract for
their presentation via the online abstract system. If the special session
is not accepted, individual speakers are encouraged to submit an individual
abstract for general consideration. Organizers will be responsible for
informing their speakers of acceptance or rejection.
