Call for Symposium Proposals
Proposals for symposia will be accepted at any time before September 7. If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please contact the Program Chair, Sarah Goslee. The proposal should include a symposium title, objective, a list of speakers and titles in the order in which you wish them to occur, and the length of each talk (including questions). Talks in symposia need not be the standard 20-minute length, but we ask that you arrange your schedule so that there is a transition on the hour. Please send your proposal to with the subject line “Symposium Proposal”. Once the symposium s accepted, each speakers will be required to submit an abstract following the procedure for regular abstracts (which will be due November 2).

This year we will also accept symposium proposals which include time for relevant talks drawn from the pool of regular submissions. These additional talks will be chosen by the Program Committee with the approval of the symposium organizer. Please note in your proposal whether you are willing to include additional presentations.

All presenters, whether presenting in a symposium, oral or poster session, must register by the early registration deadline or their presentations may be dropped from the program. The early registration deadline will be March 6, 2008. Acceptance letters will be sent out no later than the end of December to allow for plenty of time to meet this requirement. Please contact the Program Chair at with any questions.
