Oral Abstracts

Oral Abstract schedule notifications were sent on 22 July, to the 'presenter'.

Oral Abstract notifications, which included the session and date you are assigned to present, were sent to the 'presenter'. If you did not receive the email notification, please email Leah Skogman.

Assigned session and session times are subject to change.

Oral Abstract Presenter

One author or colleague must present the abstract during the assigned oral abstract session time to present your research and answer questions from viewers. The presenting author or colleague must plan to attend the Congress in full as oral presentation assignments will not be rescheduled in order to accommodate personal travel plans.

Please email Leah Skogman by Friday, 15 July only if you need to withdraw your abstract; otherwise you will receive your oral abstract number and presentation session time assignment on/by Monday, 1 August.
