WAS has found that many people wait to submit an abstract until closer to the meeting because they are waiting
for the latest data/results. The late submissions cause problems for the presenter and the Program Committee in
dealing with them and making proper assignment. Many times the session the presenter wants is already full.
This year we would like to encourage you to submit your abstract early - which will get you into the process
and give your submission a better chance of being accepted for your desired presentation. We will then accept
replacement abstracts un January 31, 2018. You can send a revised abstract by email attachment and we will
then replace the old one with the emailed version which will go into the Abstract Book USB.
