Addendum to Call for Submissions

Because of COVID-19 disruptions, poster submissions will be accepted with either a regular poster abstract or pre-registration abstract.

Pre-registration Abstract: Abstract for study that you plan to conduct (or have collected already but not analyzed), and pre-register your hypotheses & data analysis plans. The abstract should state the study’s objective, describe the methods and analysis plans for each hypothesis, and discuss general implications of the study. These abstracts should also include a description of how feasible it will be for data analysis to be completed by the time of the meeting. This description should be detailed enough to enable reviewers to assess feasibility of the completion of data analysis for presentation. The data analysis should be completed before the conference to include the results and conclusion in the presentation.
