To publish your abstract, we will need a contributor's publication release. If we don't receive a release, you may still display your poster or present your talk; your poster/talk title will be listed in the program book but the abstract will not be published.
Clicking "I AGREE" on the poster abstract submission form or the speaker registration form constitutes agreement to the text below headed "Publication Release Form." Alternatively, you can use a hard copy of Form ANL-580, Contributors Publication Release (Word), and fax it to 630-252-9250, Attn: Connie Vanni.
Note for Argonne authors: You must submit abstracts for the usual Argonne clearance process. If all authors are from Argonne, the contributor's publication release is not required, but we will need a copy of the clearance confirmation: send it to Connie Vanni, firstname.lastname@example.org by April 8 (CLOSED).
