Finalizing the Session
After a session has been granted tentative acceptance, the session Chair should work with the Co-Chair and all presenters to finalize presentation titles and abstracts—a process known as the Resubmission Phase, which occurs from July to August. For all session types, each session Chair must enter a complete, revised “overall abstract” that fully describes the presentation in detail and incorporates any suggestions from the SPC, as well as enter the individual abstracts for each presenter. Complete instructions are sent in July to all session Chairs for finalizing the sessions.
Final acceptance is granted after a formal round of review of the final session description and individual abstracts by the SPC in mid-September.
