Chairs' Choice Plenary Talks
Nomination Deadline: December 5, 2018
Speakers announced: January 21, 2019
The Chairs’ Choice Talks are an opportunity for high impact work published after the program is set to be highlighted in a plenary session.
Nominations (including self-nominations) are invited for Chair’s Choice Talks to be presented in the last spot of each plenary session. Nominators
can self-define “high impact.”
To be considered, the work must be published or in press for 2018 or early 2019, and the nominee must agree to attend the entire meeting. Those
invited to present talks in concurrent sessions are still eligible to be considered for a Chair’s Choice Plenary Talk. Meeting scientific
co-chairs and plenary session chairs will choose among the nominations. Note: as is the case for all talks, no registration/housing waivers
or travel funds will be awarded. In addition, if you would like the abstract to be programmed as a poster, if you are not selected
to present in a plenary session, then it must be submitted through the abstract submission process. Abstracts, not selected, will
not be scheduled if they are not submitted online.
To submit a nomination send the following:
- Speaker name, affiliation, email address and link to lab website (if available).
- Brief abstract of the work highlighting its importance (500 word maximum).
- A PDF of the publication or link to website.
