Late-breaking submissions are topical, timely, and relevant to current events. A limited number of late-breaking sessions will be accepted, and the number of slots for Oral Presentation Sessions and Roundtables is dependent upon the Annual Meeting venue's spatial availability. The Call for Proposals site will open on Monday, August 13 and will close at 3 pm EDT on Friday, September 14. Accept/decline notifications will be sent to submitters the week of October 8 (via email).
