The Scientific Program Committee is planning yet another dynamic slate of sessions for the 2017 Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland. The abstract submission site is open to accept abstracts for poster and platform presentations. The deadline to submit an abstract is Friday, October 7, 2016, at 11:59 pm (Eastern Daylight Time), and the cost is $50. The 2017 abstract submission site can be accessed online.

As always, it is our goal to construct a program that reflects both the best science, as well as the breadth of interests across the SOT membership. We believe that the 2017 symposia, roundtables, workshops, and other special sessions are timely and highly informative and span a full spectrum of topics to meet the diversity of our membership. An overview of these sessions can be found on the SOT website. We hope that you have started thinking about your contributions to the meeting, and that you are planning to present your most recent research results.

For questions related to the submission of abstracts, please be sure to visit the Annual Meeting website and the Abstract Submission Guidelines developed for your use. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact the SOT office at 703.438.3115.

We encourage you to share this information with your colleagues. As a reminder, as an SOT member you can be a coauthor on an unlimited number of abstracts, but you may be listed as a presenting author on only one.

On behalf of the SOT Council and Scientific Program Committee, we look forward to welcoming you to Baltimore for the Annual Meeting that will take place from March 12–16, 2017.

Best regards,

Patricia E. Ganey, PhD
SOT Vice President and
Scientific Program Committee Chairperson, 2016–2017
