Deadlines & availability

30 April 2021 - Abstracts due

30 June 2021 - Registration due

Register and submit your abstract early. We have limited physical space for less than 135 attendees. The exact limit depends on coronavirus and we will work with Chico Hot Springs to make sure that we do not overcommit the space. If you plan to attend, please register as soon as your circumstances allow.

Once the talk slots are filled, your only presentation option will be a poster. Late registration and presentation options will be offered if space is still available, but likely only for a poster.

All abstracts—early and late—will be reviewed by the Program Committee. When our attendance limit is met, you can sign up for the waitlist.


Registration is temporarily offline as we adjust for the postponement.
