HBES welcomes symposium submissions in sets of three talks (this will equal 3, 6, 9, or 12 talks). Each set of three will occupy one, one hour session; talks within a one hour session are expected to run 20 minutes each. The symposium chair should submit the symposium information, in addition to the information for each individual talk. If your talk has been submitted as part of a symposium, you do not need to submit an abstract individually. Members of symposia cannot be considered for New Investigator or Post-Doctoral Research awards. The submission deadline is March 17, 2017.
