Scientific Program Committee and Administration

  • Scientific Program Committee

    The Scientific Program Committee evaluates abstract submissions for the Annual Meeting and curates the scientific program. Out of more than 2,000 submissions, the committee could select only 135 live and 400 on-demand sessions for the final program. The committee is instrumental in recommending and assembling key invited speakers, as well as new offerings, to produce the meeting's high-caliber educational content.
