Call for TECHNICAL ABSTRACTS

Please submit a one-page abstract to abstracts@rrmc.co within the scope of the conference by August 15, 2022. The Technical Committee will review all submissions and notify you if your abstract has been selected for either an oral or poster presentation unless you specify any restrictions. Student abstracts are encouraged. Please see CONFERENCE OBJECTIVES for more information. Please use the following format:

TITLE IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS
Presenter
Presenter affiliation
Presenter email address
Additional Authors and Affiliations

Briefly, within 1 page, describe the work that will be presented. The abstract should include a brief background on the importance of the topic, a description of the experimental approach, and any preliminary results that will be discussed. For works in progress, results that are expected by the 65th RRMC 2022 may be included as well. The information provided in your abstract will assist the technical program committee in grouping similar presentations into sessions.

In your submission email, please indicate if you would prefer an oral or poster presentation.

Accepted abstracts may be revised to abstracts@rrmc.co by September 15th, or the originally submitted abstract will be used. The final abstracts will be compiled and placed on the conference website for attendees to download prior to the conference. If you have problems submitting your abstract by email, please contact the Technical Program Organizers at abstracts@rrmc.co for assistance.

We look forward to welcoming you to Atlanta this fall,

The 65th RRMC organizing committee
