Due to the cancellation of the meeting at 2020 COSM, exceptions are being made for abstract submission for the 2021 meetings. Abstracts selected for poster or podium presentation at the 2020 meeting at COSM are eligible for resubmission to either meeting, regardless of submission for publication in the Triological journals.

Please Note the Following Exception: Those who participated in the COSM (May 2020) Virtual Poster Session may not submit the same abstract.
