Mini-Symposia will take the place of breakfast seminars and instructional courses and will be paired with free paper sessions based on similar topics. This option maintains flexibility for various meeting types depending on travel restrictions and the status of the pandemic.

What are Mini-Symposia?

Mini-Symposia are 75 minutes in length, providing formal in-depth instruction for continuing professional education combined with audience participation and interaction. There is a strict 3,000 character count, including spaces, which will be imposed on the length of the body of the abstract. In keeping with both the new format and the theme of our meeting, multi-institutional, collaborative submissions are encouraged. Please limit all Mini-Symposia speakers (including author) to no more than six, due to technology restrictions.

Abstracts must be submitted online via the AACPDM Annual Meeting Abstract Submission website.

DEADLINE for abstract submissions is Sunday, January 31, 2021, 11:59 pm ET.
