2. Be very careful when entering your abstract title, name, institution, and contact information.
What you enter will be used to create the program of events. Do not use all caps and be sure to put a period after your middle initial, if entered. Finally, fully spell out your institutional affiliation.


Further instructions are on the actual submission site.  Please be sure to read carefully to ensure that your submission is properly put into the abstract system.
