Posters numbered 1 through 132 will be presented on Friday (8 – 10 pm), January 8, 2016. Posters numbered 133 through 262 will be presented Saturday (9:30 – 11:30 am), January 9, 2016.

The poster viewing area will be crowded this year, so we’re asking authors presenting even-numbered posters to stand at and present their posters during the first hour of the two-hour session. Odd-numbered posters will be presented in the second hour.

The search field below (at left at top of table) can be used to search for keywords found in poster titles and abstracts, as well as names of authors.

The table links below present different views of the list of posters at this year’s symposium for searching. Full author listings and poster abstracts are available for each poster by clicking the Poster Details in the table row for each poster number.
