* During abstract submission to the SSR, if your abstract covers this area of focus, you may request that your abstract is considered for presentation at the Joint Symposium as well as for the SSR annual meeting; these abstracts will be reviewed separately for each meeting. Five abstracts will be selected for oral talks and up to 60 posters will be presented in the Symposium. It is possible for an abstract to be accepted for presentation in one format for the Joint Symposium and in another format for either the ASAS or SSR Annual Meetings; for example, a poster presentation in one and an oral in the other. In addition, abstracts selected for poster presentation will compete for 7 poster presentation awards. Please contact us if you have questions regarding your abstract and its fit for the Joint Symposium.
