We encourage abstracts to contain new and unpublished materials. Abstracts must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers. Status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on this web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers. 

We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. A certain number of presentations by graduate students and postdocs attending the conference will be selected for fellowship (US $100-$500) awards. For more details, please visit 


We look forward to seeing you at Suzhou in May, 2017.
