Authors wishing to present a paper are requested to submit an abstract by April 30 for early abstract submission pricing and May 14 as the final deadline. Abstracts are requested to be about 200-300 words and must emphasize objectives and results.

The abstract submission, as well as conference registration, runs through the ASA conference system. Note that the ASA is strict about submission deadlines and they will assess a $50 fee ($70 after the earlybird deadline) to be paid at the time of submission.

Be sure to select ISTVS Section and then choose Symposium/Oral Session or Poster Session during the process to ensure that your work is assigned to the ISTVS 7th Americas Regional Conference:
