Not Sure If You Should Submit an Abstract Due to Effects of COVID-19?

We encourage you to submit anyway, we're making sure there are no downsides.

Q: What if my abstract is accepted and I can't attend due to travel restrictions or visa issues?
A: We will be providing an online method of participation and presentation, or a no-consequence withdrawal if that is not possible.

Q: My lab is closed and I can't get the results I had hoped for in the abstract. Is it still good enough?
A: Write your abstract with your speculation as to the results. This will be accounted for during review and you will not be penalized.

Q: What happens if I still can't get the results done in time for presentation at the conference?
A: We will support null-thesis and review presentations, content changes, or if necessary withdrawals without penalty.

Q: What if I pay my registration and can't attend due to COVID-19?
A: We will refund your registration up until the first day of the conference. Online only will be at a significantly reduced rate, and refunded accordingly.

Q: I'm still not confident about writing on uncertain results, can I do anything?
A: Review papers and talks are welcome and are of broad interest, please consider submitting such an abstract in your field of expertise.

Q: I need a visa to travel to the USA, I'm not sure if I can go or not, should I still submit?
A: Submit by the deadline so we can get you a visa letter of support in ample time. As noted above, withdrawal, alteration, or online presentation will be options.
