Abstract Deadline.pngThe Scientific Program Committee is planning another dynamic slate of sessions for the 2017 SOT Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland, March 12–16, 2017. SOT is happy to announce that the abstract submission site is now open to accept abstracts for poster and platform presentations. The deadline to submit an abstract is October 7, 2016, at 11:59 pm (US Eastern Time), and the cost is $50.

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 Annual Meeting website. Please stay tuned as we will continue to provide updates as the plans for the meeting develop.  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. The 2017 abstract submission site is accessed online.

BP1_5040 crop.jpgComplete instructions have been written to assist you with maneuvering the 2017 abstract site; they may be accessed on the SOT website.  If you submitted a session proposal last spring or an abstract proposal for last year’s Annual Meeting, you may use the same User ID and password for submitting an abstract. 

For questions related to the submission of abstracts, please be sure to visit the website to access the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)  developed for your use. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact the SOT office at 703.438.3115.

We are very excited about returning to Baltimore, the location of the 2009 Annual Meeting. The Convention Center is located in downtown Baltimore, across the street from Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles. Other attractions nearby are the National Aquarium, Port Discovery, and the B&O Railroad Museum; historic neighborhoods within walking distance to the Convention Center include Federal Hill, Little Italy, and Fells Point. 

On behalf of the SOT Council and Scientific Program Committee, I look forward to welcoming you to Baltimore for the 56th Annual Meeting!
